Marbella Old Town, Marbella

4.7
#1 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Costa del Sol
Populated by well-preserved historic buildings among citrus trees, Marbella Old Town 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.
