Marbella Old Town
Marbella Old Town is partially surrounded by the ruins of an old Arab wall with narrow white washed streets, old churches and squares, as well as lots of fascinating shops and boutiques.
At the heart of Old Town is Orange Square, which dates back to 1485 and, according to Christian urban design, is surrounded by whitewashed houses and three historical buildings – the Town Hall, the Old Governor’s House and the Chapel (Hermitage) of Santiago. The gardens are full of brightly coloured flowers, orange trees and in the centre stands: King Juan Carlos 1. At the end of Nueva Street, where it joins Orange Square, stands a stone fountain which dates from the year 1504 when it was erected by the first Mayor of Christian Marbella.
