Attractions and Places to Visit in Marbella
Picturesquely located on Spain’s glorious Costa del Sol, where Andalusia meets the Mediterranean Sea, Marbella stands out for its unique combination of adventure, entertainment, spectacular shopping, 5-star dining and fashionable beach life. Popular among jet-setters from all over the world, the city has already established itself as the swankiest Spanish resort, offering both the ultimate in glitz and glamour, as well a taste of quintessential Andalusia.
This tidy and fashionable town stands out among the seaside resorts of the Costa del Sol. Palm-trimmed promenades, posh beach clubs, and exclusive golf courses cater to an upscale clientele. Yet everyone will enjoy the sandy beaches and the quaint historic center (Casco Antiguo). Historic Marbella is an enchanting old Moorish town full of charming whitewashed houses, cobblestone streets, and shady trees. Many of the old buildings are adorned with ironwork balconies and dripping with vibrant bougainvillea.
The Plaza de los Naranjos blossoms with fragrant orange trees in springtime, reminiscent of the Moors' homeland in North Africa. It's worth exploring Marbella's town squares, historic landmarks, art museums, and boutiques, to balance time spent sunbathing and relaxing at the beach.
