Marbella Old Quarter, Marbella

4.7
#1 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Costa del Sol
Populated by well-preserved historic buildings among citrus trees, Marbella Old Quarter is the perfect spot for a walking tour along cobbled streets. A stroll of the quarter will reward you with quaint shops and architecture that spans the centuries. The area is dominated by edifices that once housed local government offices, such as the city hall, built in the 16th century. The House of the Magistrate is older still and can be found next to chapel, which was built around the same time. If time permits, enjoy a meal or coffee at one of the many cafes in Los Naranjos Plaza.

    Cozy place to go around the narrow streets, which reeks of atmosphere and mood, many fine stores, however, were not all open on Sundays well worth a visit

    It is one of the must-see if you are in the environments of Marbella. It is well maintained and you can also find culture, restoration and shopping of all kinds. The walk is very nice if going callejeando unhurried totally recommended

    Beautiful, white houses, narrow streets, charming people and shops and restaurants and people again and more people. Too crowded, becomes overwhelming. To return in winter or another not as tourist date and enjoy each of its corners, that they have to be spectacular

Where to stay in Marbella

While Marbella is traditionally known for its expansive resorts and hotels along the shores of the Costa del Sol, the old city center provides top accommodation for those seeking a more authentic Andalusian experience. A lovely mixture of white-washed buildings, charming plazas, and numerous options for dining and shopping, the old center is located within walking distance of the city's Paseo Maritimo, a tree-lined waterfront promenade leading down to the famous Puerto Banus.
