  • We went to Sunday mass here, it was brief but a wonderful atmosphere. You should go visit, even if not religious, wonderful Renaissance style.  more »
  • The church, like many in Andalusia, is built on the site of a Muslim mosque, but this fact does not remind of anything. There is an organ in the church, but no choirs. Curiously, donations here can be made with a credit card, smartphone or even a smart watch. Bright and cozy church, as well as other churches in the Old quarter of Marbella.

  • Today after a walk to the Orange square we went to the Church square next door and saw this beautiful church built on the site of the mosque in the 16-17 century. Beautiful Baroque interior, orange trees near the church and excellent energy. Pleasant place for rest. On The external façade of the Church of the Incarnation of our Lady is quite interesting colored ceramic panel. The panel lists the peoples who lived and live in the territory of Marbella and left their mark on the history and culture of the city. Among them are such nationalities as Greeks, Arabs, Swedes, Germans, Finns, Englishmen and others.
