Marbella is a beautiful elongated village situated on the Costa del Sol, the southernmost coast of Spain. This coast is blessed with 300 days of sunshine per year. The Costa del Sol is divided into an East and a West section. The Western part is for tourism especially important. Because of its location at the foot of the Sierra Blanca is not too hot in summer and in the winter delicious mild.

The N340 coastal road connects the airport in Malaga with the rest of the coast.

The old Marbella is definitely worth a visit. During a walk through the narrow streets you will see various churches, the old town hall and the houses with colourful flowers. After the walk you can on the Plaza de los Naranjos eat something and drink.
