Plaza de Los Naranjos

The town's prettiest square retains its original Renaissance-style fountain, 15th-century chapel, stately mansions and, of course, the orange trees that give it its name. Plaza de los Naranjos which is also referred to as Orange Square was the center of commercial and political life in Marbella for centuries. What's now the Town Hall was a prison during the 19th century. Fortunately, it has been carefully preserved and restored and offers a wonderful environment in which to relax.

Museo del Grabado Español Contemporáneo

This magnificent museum is located in the old Bazan Hospital, a 16th-century building that still conserves its tower with typical roof tiles and whitewashed walls. It has been renovated to hold important works by Tapies, Miro, Picasso, and Chillida on its two floors. There is also a library, where more than a thousand works on the last two centuries of Spanish Graphic Art are held. The museum organizes and holds temporary exhibitions, as well as grants the National Etching Prize every year. Currently, the construction of a workshop-school is underway in a side building. Visitors can enjoy guided tours both morning and afternoon from Tuesday through Friday.

Parque Arroyo de la Represa

You'll find the fascinating Museo del Bonsai in this spacious park that's been enlarged twice in the past 20 years to include two full-size football pitches and athletics tracks surrounded by green areas. There are lots of trees and little landscaped areas where you can take pleasant walks in the evening and sit to chat peaceably on the wooden benches. It has an artificial lake which is fed by little streams running between the rock beds. It's open all day.

Parque - Auditorio de la Constitución

Built in the 1950s, this lovely park is located behind the city center and a few minutes from the beach. The ocean breezes mix with the scent of olive trees, cypresses, palm trees, little tropical shrubs, geraniums, bougainvillea, and jasmine. Carefully tended, the park houses the municipal open-air auditorium as well, where music, dance and theatrical festivals are held, especially during the summer months. It's a round building, with traditional Andalusian horseshoe arches and tilework. The park has swings and slides for children, and there's a café nearby.

Museo Cortijo Miraflores

Museo Cortijo Miraflores was built on the foundation of another house by the Convento de Nuestro Padre Señor San Francisco. In 1756, the building was extended and gardens were created and planted to the south side of the house. The work was completed in 1850, when the various exotic plants brought in by D. Tomás Domínguez Artola from Phillipines were planted here. Please check for timings as they are seasonal.
