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.

Iglesia de la Encarnación

Originally built in 1505 with a surprising architectural design and size for the period, this church stands in Plaza de la Iglesia and is one of the city's most important landmarks. Most of the current building, however, was raised in 1712. The main façade dates from 1756 and is the work of the artists Pedro del Castillo and Salvador Galvez. The three naves lead to the main altar inside, where the magnificent organ of the Sol Mayor (C Major) stands, one of the most beautiful in Andalusia. In the beautiful interior, some of the statues that are paraded through the street during Holy Week are housed, including the Virgen de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude).

King Abdul Aziz Mosque

Rey Abdul Aziz Al Saud Mosque is a city location for Muslim worship and other services. It is a newly built mosque which is modern in design and stark white in color. The mosque's imposing facade, coupled with its eye-catching designs and Andalusian-inspired architecture makes it stand out amongst the other structures of the city. Surrounding the mosque are lush green gardens with pretty pink flowers, which make it a pleasure to walk through.

Marbella Old Town

The picturesque Old Town of Marbella is a sight to behold with its winding lanes and colorful houses, bursting with flowers hanging off its balconies. This charming old town is filled with tourists visiting its chic cafes, boutiques and enjoying the town’s beauty, owing to its 16th-century Arab influence. Visit the town in the evenings and you will see an array of flamenco performances that will captivate you.

Las Murallas del Castillo

In the heart of the old quarter stand the remains of the Arab castle and city walls that once spread over 90000m2. It is the only construction that still remains from the Muslim era. It was built in the 10th century in the Caliph period, later enlarged in the 14th century by the Nazaries. There are many legends associated with the old castle and walls, including rumours of secret and underground passages, connecting the ancient fortress with the sea. The castle's original layout is rectangular, measuring 90 meters by 160 squaremeters; unfortunately, the years have taken their toll on this beautiful building and it has lost all its towers. The walls and part of the castle are currently being restored. The inside is not open to the public.

Ayuntamiento de Marbella

Ayuntamiento de Marbella was established under the rule of Catholic king Fernando V, in 1485. The architectural style of the place, is seen in the Castilian cities around Spain but without arcades. The Ayuntamiento was used as a government office including those of council, jail, chapel, magistrates court, granary and the market. A new road was specially developed to connect the building with plaza Puerta del Mar.
