Sunny Marbella will steal your heart with its easy grandeur and its taste for all things luxurious. It’s hard to see beyond the gorgeous, undeniably lavish yachts and elegant homes of the rich and famous. But there is much more for a curious traveller to unearth. All over town, the remnants of a rich history welcome you.
The Castle, Town Hall and the Old Town are some of the most fascinating monuments from Marbella’s past. Marbella has enjoyed much attention and pampering by the Moorish as well as the Romans, Visigoths and Phoenicians. And today too, it is the apple of the most fanciful eyes in the world; be it Arab royalty or the likes of Sean Connery, many have fallen for Marbella’s charm.
Nowhere else is this wealth as apparent as Puerto Banus, the port where you can spot more celebrities per square kilometre than any other place in Europe! On your travel to Marbella, you will find sandy beaches full of beautiful people, impressive monuments alongside charming cafes and whitewashed buildings that complement the azure blue of the Mediterranean; Marbella is truly the city of dreams.
