History of the Region
The old heart of Marbella is the Plaza de los Naranjos, or the "Square of the Orange Trees" which were planted in 1941. The oranges grow abundantly on this beautiful town square. Most of the buildings around this square date from the period 1485 to 1568, when the Christians conquered the Moors. Three beautiful historic buildings can be found around the square, namely the Casa Consistorial, the Casa del Corregidor and finally the Ermita de Santiago, one of the oldest churches in Marbella. Plaza de los Naranjos has an intimate setting where it is wonderful to relax under the shady orange trees. Here you feel that the city is steeped in history.
The Plaza de Altamirano is located in another quiet corner of the old town. On this beautiful square you taste the historic atmosphere of Marbella, with its old-fashioned street lamps and green palm trees. Around the square you will find quaint old houses with classic iron balconies, where climbing plants and blooming purple bougainvillea provide a summer touch.

Mountainous Region - Pure Nature
The area around Marbella is characterized by a beautiful hilly landscape. There are two national parks nearby. In the former noble hunting ground Doñana, you find countless migratory birds resting on their journey from south to north. The marshy delta area contains no roads and hardly any houses, and is therefore perfect for quiet walks. Another well-known national park is the Sierra Nevada, which literally means "snowy mountain range".
Marbella enjoys its own unique microclimate, thanks to its ideal position between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountain landscape of the Sierra de las Nieves and the La Concha. La Concha is at 1,200 m above sea level the highest point in the Marbella region. The name means "shell" in Spanish - because of the shape of the mountain.
La Concha is located in the southernmost part of the Sierra Blanca mountain range, which is an extension of the beautiful Sierra de las Nieves and the nature park of the same name.
La Concha keeps the cold wind away from Marbella in the winter, creating the microclimate. If you drive away from Marbella towards Malaga you can sometimes experience a temperature difference of 3 to 5 degrees, especially in the winter. In the summer, La Concha retains the cool sea air, making the temperatures slightly more pleasant than in the surrounding regions.
Cuisine and Delicacies
In a very narrow street at the start of the old center of Marbella, you will find a gold mine of nice original tapas restaurants. Bar El Estrecho is not immediately noticed in terms of appearance, but certainly in terms of food. It is one of the oldest tapas restaurants in Marbella, namely started in 1954! A healthy mix of meat, fish, seafood and vegetables is on the menu.
One of the most typical dishes in Marbella is grilled sardines (espeto de Sardiñas). The sardines, grilled over an open fire at the beach restaurants, are perfectly cooked and eaten with roasted bell pepper salad. This typical regional dish is prepared in a special way. This is originally a dish for poor people or modest families. But "Miguel el de las Sardinas (Miguel of the Sardines)" had the great idea of opening a Chiringuito (beach bar). The dish consists of 6-7 sardines on a skewer, as if they were stung by a sword. This skewer is stuck in the sand next to the fire. This way they are roasted alongside, until they are ready – it’s delicious and a must-try!
Marbella offers also numerous international bistro-style restaurants, such as Alinda and The Orange Tree. There are also kitchen-specific options such as Thai, Indian, Argentinian and Italian restaurants.
