Marbella Old Town

Marbella old town (Casco Antiguo) is a lovely place to explore, with its narrow lanes and interesting history. The photos below were taken in the area this month.

The ancient walled city layout retains the same layout as in the 16th century. Here is the Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Square) Around the square are some great buildings, the town hall, built in 1568 by the Catholic Monarchs, the Mayor’s house, and the Chapel of Santiago, the oldest religious building in the city (believed to date from the 15th century). The remains of the defensive walls are interesting too. It is pleasant to walk around the small streets and admire the architecture of the area.
