Marbella

Marbella is considered the capital of the western Costa del Sol. Its privileged location at the foot of the Sierra Blanca, on the first line of the coast, provides excellent climatic conditions and great beauty, making it one of the most important tourist centres in Spain.

The municipality of Marbella is bounded on the north by the municipalities of Istan and Ojen, Benahavís to the northwest, Estepona on the west, and Mijas to the east.

Its origin dates back to Roman times, for which there is abundant archaeological evidence. Even so, it still retains two towers and the castle walls from the Arabic period. From the Christian era, in the old town, remains the Church of the Incarnation, the Casa del Corregidor and the Hospital de San Juan de Dios.

The town centre is 56 kilometres from Malaga. The municipality recorded an average annual rainfall of 630 l/m2, and the average temperature is 18 º C.
