11th century Arabic castle walls blends in with the new architecture of the town giving the area an interesting character. The castle originally had ten towers and held out against the Catholic monarchs until 1485.

Good to see some of the historic ruins if the castle still in place. Shame there isn't a little more to do with regards to castle of history of he area here. Also a shame that the castle has been converted into residential premises and repaired in a modern style.

The old quarter is a wonderful place just to walk around and enjoy especialy at night, when there are less people walking around the walls, we had fun exploring the alley ways, seeing the walls made the visit even better.

It is the presence of the remains of this beautiful fortification that makes the Casco Antiguo, or Old Town much more beautiful and picturesque. There is not much to see except a wall ruins, however, the context is a must, this is the place for great photos and panoramic views but just for a little 'relaxation in one of the... More

Not much to see but while walking through the Marbella Old Town, you will come across the remains of the city walls from the Arab Castle which was built in the 10th Century

In the center of Marbella one can see the remains of the Arab walls that defended the city during the Middle Ages. These were probably built over Roman walls. This gives the center something of historic interest.

This is really more of some old wals of the castle that have been incorporated into the old town of Marbella. Interesting and beatiful but not much to see. They give character to the village and give some surprises when you turn an alley and see some section of wall. Nice backdrop for the village

They were later enlarged during the 14th century during the Nazari era and had a great strategic value. The walls were built after the rebellion of Omar ben Hafsun was repressed. They were also built... More
