Marbella's Harbour

Marbella's Harbour

Marbella lies south of Malaga on the Mediterranean Sea below Sierra Blanca. It’s the second largest town in Malaga province. The city has a major tourist industry almost year round. Marbellla is sheltered by Sierra Blanca and has a warm dry climate with average annual temperature is about 18 degrees C, rising to late 20s in summer. Rainfall is irregular, but often flash flooding has occurred due to the steep mountain slopes which funnel the water into the short rivers that run from the mountains to the coast. Most of these rivers have been widened and deepened with protective walls to prevent flooding.

Marbella Town

In the walls of the Moorish Castle, there are a number of Iconic capitals embedded with other stone work, this suggests that the town had a Roman past, and that the settlement remains were reused as building material. There are Roman remains recently excavated in La Calle Escuelas and further west in the city there is a Roman bridge over a stream. This ancient bridge lay on the road that connects Cádiz and Rome.
