In addition to landmarks which you cannot miss, such as the symbol of luxury and glamour, the famous Puerto Banus, Marbella offers lovely less crowded places, perfect to get away.
The Old Town is one of the most beautiful historical districts and the best preserved in Andalucia. Within the old walled enclosure of the sixteenth century, there is the Castle (X century) – the only building that endured the Muslim era. The intense commercial life offers varied establishments among the narrow cobbled streets and white balconies covered with bougainvillea and geraniums.
The famous Plaza de los Naranjos, of Renaissance origin, is the heart of the Old Town. We recommend that you take a walk on a warm summer night and find delight in the orange blossom.
Nearby, you will find la Iglesia de la Encarnación (The Church of the Incarnation- XVII century), the San Juan de Dios Chapel, the Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz Chapel and the Bazán Hospital (XVI century) which houses the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engraving since 1992, first of its kind with a rich archive of authors such as Miro, Picasso, Tapies and Chillida.
The Cultural Center Cortijo de Miraflores and its archaeological exhibition, the Ralli Museum and the archaeological sites of the Villa Romana de Rio Verde and the early Christian basilica of Vega del Mar are sensible options for a cultural visit.
Avenida del Mar, located along Paseo de la Alameda, is a garden route with fountains between the Old Town and the sea, and the permanent exhibition of outdoor sculptures of the famous artist Salvador Dali.
Book your stay at the BlueBay Banus hotel, built in the style of a typical white Andalusian village, with its cobbled streets, courtyards, squares and even a small chapel.
