Marbella is one of Spain’s most glamorous locations and is favoured by the rich and famous as a holiday destination. You don’t need to be famous to holiday here though – you just need to enjoy the luxury that this lifestyle offers. The old town is filled with narrow cobbled streets that are bursting with shops and stalls selling beautiful flowers, clothes, accessories and handmade goods, along with an array of art galleries. One of the most beautiful locations is Plaza de los Naranjos located off the main street. With vibrant orange trees filling the area, you can also find the 16th-century town hall and the tourist office here.
For the best shopping in the city, head to Puerto Banus for the latest contemporary fashions and top international designer stores. You can also learn about Marbella’s extensive history in the mosaics at Rio Verde, which have been preserved all these years. Obviously, as it attracts so many tourists, the beaches in Marbella are luxurious. This really is the perfect location to enjoy sun, sea and sand in luxury.
