Between delicious drinks and all the seafood, do yourself a favour and walk through the Old Quarter. It is quaint and romantic - with so much packed into tiny streets.

Photo opportunities at every corner, just strolling along the narrow streets and laneways. Lovely bars, restaurants & shops but not overly so. Beautiful by day and by night.

This was a find for me and my students. We had a free day in Costa del Sol and decided to check out Marbella since it was close to our hotel. The old quarter had some cool sights and gave insight into what village life is like in southern Spain. Go after 11, that is when the city wakes up!

For architect and narrow back streets lovers. The squares are full of restaurants and cafes as well as planted areas of flowers and shrubs. Beautiful to stroll round but it does get busy with tourists as the day goes on. Tip - go and explore all the back streets as they hide some great architect.

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

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.
