Marbella, called Salduba (Salt City) by the Romans and Marbil-la by the Moors can trace its origins back to the arrival of Phoenician traders in the 7th century BC. In the 1960s, it transformed itself into a sun-soaked playground, and the jewel in the crown of the Spanish Riviera. In the 21st century it has become a European paradise for the jet set with a uniquely mild climate that makes it a year-round pleasure resort.
The richness of the diverse cultures that contributed to Marbella’s evolution are still with us: the picturesque Casco Antiguo (Old Town) and it’s Plaza de Los Naranjos (Orange Square) that was once a bustling Moorish medina; the fine wines from boutique bodegas that are the descendants of the vines brought by the Romans; the Michelin-starred gastronomy that can trace its lineage back through a host of Mediterranean and Eastern cuisines, and the vibrant nightlife and nightclubs and upmarket shops and boutiques that arrived here with international royalty and A-list movie stars.
Marbella invites you to explore her golden beaches, her stunning countryside, her plentiful entertainments, as well as her unequalled joie de vivre, all set against a backdrop of the impressive La Concha mountain, which ensures the city enjoys an enviable micro-climate that you won’t find elsewhere along the coast. Furthermore, from her most exclusive residences you can view the coast of North Africa; vistas that connect you to another continent and culture that is only a short flight or boat journey from where you stand. This is another of the thrills of living in Marbella.
Marbella calls you to her rich and vibrant shores: “Live here and I will show you a lifestyle that fulfils all your desires.”
