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.

  • Its old town is located very close to the Centre of Marbella. (You can walk, are just a few blocks, no more than five or six) Walls, houses of the time, all mixed with small but very picturesque bars. It is worth pausing awhile in the orange square to appreciate its special beauty and lose yourself in its streets where each façade of the House is worth to see. It is a nice walk for two hours

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.
