Marbella in Spain has been home to man since the dawn of time, and so it stands to reason that the place knows how to show people a good time! So, whether you are travelling with friends, family, a lover or alone, Marbella's natural beauty, feasts and festivals will insure that you have the time of your life while visiting the Mediterranean destination.
The world-class accommodations found in Marbella can offer anyone what they desire as the town is home to 16 golf courses, four marinas and 25 beaches. The glamorous city also offers over 20 spas and thalassotherapy centres, not to mention countless restaurants to appeal to any appetite.
Tourists can go sightseeing and take in the Old Town, or if you or one of your travel mates are a shopaholic,you may find yourself wanting to quench your needs at Ricardo Soriano Avenue or Puerto Banus, which are home to luxury shops that are equalled in lavish beauty only by the brilliant yachts moored in the nearby piers.
If historical sights are more up your alley, Marbella will not disappoint you. The municipality is broken into three main centres: Marbella, San Pedro Alcantara and Nueva Andalucia-Puerto Banus. Old Town is build around Plaza de los Naranjos facing the square, and is home to two important sights: The 15th century Chapel of Santiago and the 16th century Town Hall building.
Marbella is also home to the Governor's House, which was built in 1552, and whose facade is a combination of renaissance, gothic and mudejar elements, making it a truly unique sight to behold. The same style of architecture can be found in other buildings around too, such as the Old Bazan Hospital and the Chapel of San Juan de Dios.
The ruins of the Arab Castle Del Castillo is another tremendous sight for historically keen tourists. The site includes parts of walls and a tower. In San Pedro Alcantara there are remains of the Palaeo-Christian Basilica of Vega del Mar, as well as the Rio Verde Roman villa which is home to some truly impressive mosaics. Near Guadalmina there is also a site of former Roman baths.
As mentioned before, Marbella is home to plenty of wonderful, and scenic golf courses. Marbella's Golf Valley boasts, quite possibly, some of the best golf that can be found in all of Europe. For those tourists who crave the luxury Marbella has to offer, there is also the city's 25 km-long coastal strip that is divided into beautiful beaches and four marinas that offer up yachting, shopping and plenty of other entertainment options for everyone to enjoy.
The coastal strip is also home to Natural Monuments like the Artola dunes which shelters the beach Cabopinio, which has a clothes-free area.
The beaches are also home to the Ladrones Tower, which is not to be missed. The Tower has been designated as an Asset of Cultural Interest.
There is, however, way more nature to Marbella than just the sea. The city is perched in the slopes of the mountain range Sierra Blanca, which provides many opportunities for hikers to explore.
