You will feel the magic wandering through the bustling streets of the charming old town with its many typical Mediterranean village streets and the cities sandy beaches are great for a perfect holiday with family and friends.
The ruins found at several sites in the area confirm that it has been inhabited since the Paleolithic and Neolithic period. Further, you can find proof that Romans settled here by the Ionic capitals embedded in the ancient walls and other findings such as the Roman baths of Guadalmina and the remains of an early Christian church surrounded by a Visigoth necropolis prove continuous human presence in the area.
During the Islamic period and after the Normans laid waste to the coast of Málaga, Muslims build during the tenth century a castle to fortify the place as well as several watch towers and a fence to protect the city.
In June 11, 1485 the area became part of the Spanish Crown and the Catholic Monarchs made it capital of the region. It is at that time when Plaza de los Naranjos was built which then became the center of administrative and civil power of the city.
From the second half of the twentieth century Marbella became popular with the jet set and experienced a continued growth due to tourism and residential development for well heeled visitors.
The city has a significant cultural calendar with events that include the International Jazz Festival held in June and which is spread around different locations in the city, the Reggae Festival held in July and the International Opera Festival in Marbella in August. More recently the Film Festival has been held every October since 2006, as well as the Contemporary Art Festival.
Every year at the beginning of June, Marbella pays homage to its patron saint Bernard with a fair that lasts one week. The Marbella fair includes all the traditional elements of an Andalusian fair: food, drink, dancing, entertainment and of course, the trademark casetas (stands) that are set up just for the fair.
