Marbella’s Old Town is one of the most beautiful of its kind in Andalucía. It is a magnificently preserved area with narrow, white streets and floral balconies where, along with a wide range of establishments, you will find Plaza de los Naranjos or Orange Square, which includes the 16th Century Town Hall. It takes its present name from its picture orchard of orange trees planted in 1941 that substituted the palm-trees which had replaced the horse chestnuts.
You can also visit the remains of the walls which surrounded the Muslim town and those of the Arabic Castle where you can even see traces of Roman capitals extracted from other buildings. The Alameda Park has always been Marbella`s pride. This large green area, the city lung, dates back to the 18th century and in its best time it spread over an area of 20,000 sq meters.
