After taking an interesting bus ride from Torremolinos to Marbella, Carmen (Carmela71), picked us up at the bus station. She showed around Puerto Banus, a rich suburb of Marbella with its luxurious yachts, shops and restaurants.
We went to her home where we met up with Stace (Beach_Dog) and also met her wonderful Mother who prepared a nice dinner for all of us.They also presented me with a lovely bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day. How sweet and thoughtful! Thanks again.
Later we strolled along the picturesque, narrow streets of the Old Town of Marbella (Casco Antigua). Among the highlights were the Rincon de la Virgen, Parque de la Alameda, The old Moorish Castle and Church of the Encarnacion.
Marbella was the location of Euromeet2006, in May. Hans and I spent two weeks here enjoying this lovely town.

Hans and I again took the bus to Marbella to visit Carmen and Stace. We spent a lovely afternoon driving in the nearby countryside. Went to a huge Flea Market in Manilva and then went for lunch in the white Andalucia village of Casares. Thanks Carmen and Stace for a lovely day - at least it didn't rain this time. hehe!

Pictured here is the "Rincon de la Virgen", just one of the many picturesque sights you will see when you visit the Old Town of Marbella.
Marbella is rich in history and dates from the Roman times. The Old Moorish Castle, pictured here stands guard over the Old Town and there are still remnants of the walled fortifications that once protected "Casco Antiguo".
While we were all in Marbella, we had the good fortune that the MARBELLA INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL 2006 was being held... more travel advice
