  • Broad avenue that gives to the promenade and the old town. It is the gateway to one of the car parks in Marbella. In summer it is crowded and in Holy week cut the entrance drive. Sculptures that cost a fortune and they are decorative, but pretentious.

  • The avenida del mar falls from the center of Marbella to the sea. Here are a dozen bronze statues that I give you the master to the city from the South where used to come very often. It is a wonderful cultural walk, inedito in the world. It is worthwhile to go

  • Great walk down to the waterfront. Beautiful Salvador Dali statues. Definately worth a visit.
  • Amazing place, it'smany great to see many sculptures by Salvador Dali.
  • . . After walking through the traditionally Spanish Alameda Gardens, this large open piazza just next to the Alameda comes as a culture shock! But a nice shock. It is a wide open space with sculptures, benches, neatly trimmed orange trees and, of course, the ubiquitous palms, the latter so far safe from the ravages of the deadly picudo rojo beetle that has been killing some of them off. A complete contrast to the Alameda with its more enclosed feel, almost like walking through a cage of vegetation. Because it is so open, the Avenida del Mar can get hot in the summer through the lack of shade; then you should be sitting listening to the tinkle of water in the Alameda. But when the winter sun is out, there's not a better place to sit in Marbella! .
  • Here we can enjoy the views and view an outdoor museum. Has sculptures of dali and picasso
