This old neighborhood is full of romance, with narrow, winding cobblestone streets: great for evening strolls.

Must see if near by. We spent most afternoons walking round the small alleys, you come across gorgeous courtyards where it is only right to stop for a drink. Lots of cheap places to eat and drink once you are off orange square.

A bit of a hilly walk but fun to see the square and the fountains. A walking tour can be completed in about 2-3 hours.

Stayed in Old Town Marbella next to Orange Square. Loads of quaint shops, various options for dining, mostly outside on the pretty cobbled streets. Lots to do, near beach, marina and lovely parks.

The pedestrianised, historic old town is a joy to explore and has been unspoilt by time. Quality shops and restaurants abound in the lovely old buildings.

Very different old town. Very appealing. Winding streets of small to narrow width. Plenty of shops. And then the beach

Sorry we where not staying in MarbElla.
My husband and I are thinking about visiting Costa del Sol next year. My concern is that I am allergic to seafood. Are there many places to eat that provide other foods?
