The old town of Marbella is without doubt one of the most beautiful corners of the city; in the centre you will discover places worth photographing, such as the famous Plaza de Los Naranjos, Casa del Regidor built in the sixteenth century or the Town Hall whose construction was ordered by the Catholic Monarchs.
There are also some religious buildings like the Chapel Ermita del Santo Cristo de Veracruz, the chapel Capilla de San Juan de Dios or the most important, the church Iglesia de la Encarnacion at Plaza San Bernabe.
There are also worth mentioning the remains of the wall of the ninth century Moorish castle situated in the centre.
