Staying in Marbella Old Quarter and it's so peaceful. Quaint narrow streets with white buildings many covered in colourful bougainvillea. Well worth a wander round! There are some buildings under renovation but something else will always catch your eye!!

A few buildings being renovated but its a nice place to walk around, have a drink, go for a meal and peruse the various shops. The nicest part of town we saw. Will be uber busy in summer

This part of Marbella is truly an unique shopping experience. You get to enjoy old Spain with modern boutiques.

We have visited Marbella twice before & never found this delightful area. Wow, what a gorgeous place. We stayed in a hotel in the old town which was amazing & really enjoyed dining here. No need to venture to the trashier touristy area by the sea.

I recently visited Marbella's old town and it is really picturesque and well worth a visit. There are lots of nooks and crannies to investigate with lovely little cafes and shops to enjoy. There are several churches and beautiful orange trees to see. A "must do" if visiting Marbella.

A beautiful experience in winter, summer, rain or shine. Be sure to research recommended restaurants as some of the ones in the plazas have an air of tourist about them, but there´s nothing wrong with an air of tourism in this village, it´s not anything like Puerto Banus. Read all the positive reviews and if you still need a push,... More
