The municipality of Marbella is located in Andalusia, in the province of Malaga on the Mediterranean coast dominated by the Concha Mountain. It is situated between the city of Malaga, 57 km to the east, and the Strait of Gibraltar, 100 km to the west. Marbella enjoys a particularly pleasant microclimate, with a mild Mediterranean climate and abundant sunshine, contributing to its great tourism success throughout most of the year.

History & Culture

In a land inhabited since the Paleolithic era, as evidenced by remains found in the Las Chapas region and the Pecho Redondo cave, the city is believed to have been founded during the Roman period under the name Barbesula. It also holds remnants of Muslim architecture predating the Reconquista. The city was then renamed Barbella and supposedly recaptured by Spanish Christians around 1485, who gave it its current name of Marbella. In the 16th century, the city underwent significant transformations, including the destruction of part of the old town and the Medina to build the current central square of Los Naranjos, as well as the street directly connecting it to the sea.

Things to Do / See

Undoubtedly, your Spanish courses in Marbella will be punctuated by long sunbathing sessions on the city's splendid beaches, from the famous Puerto Banus to the tranquil Faro, and the fine golden sands of Las Chapas. Each beach offers numerous amenities to enhance your stay, such as parking, showers, kiosks, and sun loungers. In terms of culture and history, make sure to visit the Archaeological Museum of Lots, the San Luís Fort, and the unique Bonsai Museum.
