  • beautiful little area, well maintained and very photogenic. make sure you visit when the fountain is on and again at night when it is lit.  more »
  • Although it is a small town, there is certainly plenty to see and do in Estepona. And it is easy to get to from Malaga or Gibraltar, by car or bus.  more »

  • This is great! The streets in themselves are SO lovely, but seeking out and finding the poetry on the walls was an extra bonus. We couldn't read some of them - and not just the one in Arabic! - but managed to grasp the meaning of most of them. And even if we couldn't understand either the original nor the Spanish translation, the thrill of the chase and the beauty of the plaques made it worth while.
  • . As part of its wish to bring culture into the day-to-day lives of the local people, here in Estepona they are matching the Ruta de los murales - the walk with enormous mural paintings - with the Ruta de la Poesía, a walk with poetry. In the Centro Histórico - and I don't need to tell you that this is the prettiest, best-kept and overall winner of town centres in Andalucia - they have started putting up ceramic plaques with extracts from poetry. Beautiful plaques in the traditional style with lovely extracts. Even if you cannot understand Spanish, you'll enjoy spotting them and just admiring them. l love them! The earliest ones were by the Málaga poet Manuel Alcántara, in the newly-restored little square named after him, with a beautiful downhill-flowing fountain in the middle. Others have been put up by different poets. In the Calle Caridad - a popular pedestrianised street lined with restaurants - they have put up the 'Poema del buen comer', a poem devoted to the pleasures of eating. There is also a poem by Andrej Sladkovic, a Slovakian poet, and they have also put up extracts from works written in Arabic, English, French, German and Scottish. Works written in Scottish? They must mean Rabbie Burns. Any guesses which poems they will be? :-) Start walking around the Centro Histórico and keep your eyes peeled for the plaques. Posting here photos of some of the ones that l have spotted. Have you seen others that have been missed? .
  • You can discover many poetry wandering the streets of Estepona. They exist in Spanish but also in English, French, German, Arabic, Polish and other languages. All translated to the Spanish. All decorated and very nice.
