  • Sitting in a square close to Orange Square. Amazing old church with very stylish entryway - the pillars look like sandstone. Beautiful!  more »
  • Beautiful extremely richly decorated Catholic church, located in the heart of the old town of Marbella. During my visit, the church was open late at night around 10:00 p.m.  more »
  • 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.
