Marbella - a resort located 60 km from Malaga, considered the best area of the Costa del Sol. This is the most luxurious and fashionable resort not only in Spain but also in Europe (so-called 'Spanish Riviera'), which has the beauty of its gardens and parks.
All along the waterfront there are great and beautiful sandy beaches, stretching for 28 km to the town surrounded by palm trees. It is this beautiful city that attracts many celebrities, aristocrats and influential businessmen who buy luxury villas here. And together with the sports port of Puerto Banus, it is the capital of luxury living on the coast. Among the owners of mansions - members of the royal families of Europe, the Duchess of Alba and other members of the aristocracy; American actors and show business stars (Julio Iglesias, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith, Sean Connery, etc.), and even the King of Saudi Arabia.
To the north of Marbella there are majestic peaks of the Sierra Blanca, which can be seen from any part of the city. Seven km urban promenade paved with marble slabs - each day they are washed with a special shampoo, and in the heart of the resort, on the Avenida del Mar there are installed scripts of Salvador Dali sculptures, purchased with funds from the city treasury. The lack of protection around expensive sculptures is only an illusion: they are guarded 24 hours a day.
Marbella, and many other resort towns in Spain, is divided into two parts: the old town and the modern city. However, the architecture of modern buildings in Marbella is not violated, and, even, harmoniously supplemented ensemble of the old part of the city.
Royal and Thieves Towers resemble the long domination of the Moors here in Marbella, which underwent a partial restructuring, but, in general, very well preserved. In the Old Town - there are a lot of narrow streets that connect the small open space - «Plazas» or square, of which we recommend to visit the most famous and most beautiful, 'Orange Square» (Plaza de los Naranjos), with the fountain of the XVII century citrus trees, and in the evening - a walk through the streets of «El barrio» and «La Alameda». In the vicinity of the town of San Pedro near Marbella, there are even the Roman baths come from the third century.
In Marbella, as well as throughout Spain, people love and know how to have fun. In June, they celebrate the day of Saint Barnabas - patron of the city. There is a week of incredible fun, outdoor concerts and songs - called Feria (Feria de Marbella). Old Town is decorated with balloons and flags, on every corner there are shelves with beer, wine and traditional Andalusian tapas.
Marbella has the most prestigious part of the Costa del Sol - the 'Golden Mile' (the interval between the highest Marbella and Puerto Banus), a place of stunning palaces and mansions. There is the summer palace of the King of Saudi Arabia - Palace 'Mar Mar' (replica of the White House, but three times as much). Possession of the Saudi king and his family in Marbella is occupied 20 hectares, of which over a high fence in addition to the 'White House' there is a complex of buildings, including a hospital and a mosque. At the 'Golden Mile' there is a famous club-hotel 'Marbella' and aristocratic town 'Nueva Andalucia' - a meeting place for sailors from different countries.
