The old town of Marbella dates back to the 15th century when the catholic monarchs defeated the Arab moors. There are still remains around the old town of the Arab castle that dates back to the 6th century. The Spanish name for this area is Casco Antiguo. At the centre is the Plaza De Los Naranjos which is beautiful. Surrounded with bars, restaurants and the oldest church in town. Street performers and flamenco dancers regularly perform here bringing the plaza to life. This is a fantastic place to spend a few hour's exploring the tiny narrow streets and plaza's. In the Plaza de los Naranjos there is a tourist information centre that gives out free maps of the Old Quarter and Marbella. It's worth picking one up so you do not miss out on this beautiful area.
