The narrow, cobbled streets flanked by traditional Andalusian townhouses contains a selection of small stores, among them some of the best shops in Marbella.

The tiny shops in Marbella Old Town sell perfect items for gifts – old-fashioned toys, Italian glassware, olive oil, homemade chocolates or a classy souvenir. Some high-end brands have stores here too and there are several exclusive vintage boutiques.

The main street in Marbella houses lots of shops, particularly fashion stores including the best in Spain such as Zara, Mango and Massimo Dutti. If you want a better choice, however, visit La Cañada shopping centre located to the north of the centre.

This is one of the largest shopping malls in southern Spain with a huge choice of retail opportunities. You’ll find large stores such as Leroy Merlin for DIY, Worten for appliances and an Alcampo hypermarket. La Cañada also boasts a long list of fashion stores including high-street favourites such as Zara, Cortefiel and Sfera plus high-end labels (Guess, Adolfo Dominguez, Ugg etc). FNAC (books and electronic appliances) and Apple are also based in the mall.
