Among the monuments that we can visit in Marbella, there are Roman ruins, the Castle of Marbella and the most well-known churches of Marbella. Marbella offers numerous points of tourist interest in addition to sporting events, musicals…
Chapel of San Juan de Dios
It was built at the beginning of the 16th century. A chapel with only one nave, its interior conserves a beautiful Mudejar armour in very good condition. On the outside, its interesting late Gothic-style carved stone façade and its wooden door carved with the coat of arms of the Order of San Juan de Dios.
Its canonical erection dates back to 1505, although the current building was built at the beginning of the 18th century. Its structure has a basilica floor plan and consists of three Baroque style naves. Its stone façade is in the Rococo style.
Also noteworthy, although modern, is the organ, considered the most important one built in Spain in the last 125 years.
In the avenue of the same name and at the foot of the Hermitage built in the eighteenth century, is the Church Santo Cristo del Calvario, blessed in 1976. It is a place of worship, which contains beautiful icons inside and is endowed with original and colourful stained glass windows. It is a modern, air-conditioned building that forms an ensamble of great beauty where all those who visit it can find peace and admire varied works of art.
Hermitage of Santiago
This is possibly the oldest church in Marbella (it is not aligned with the square, which suggests that its construction is earlier); it is a work of the fifteenth century, contemporary to the reconquest of Marbella. It is a fairly simple construction, consisting of a single nave ”cajón”. It is the headquarters of the Brotherhood of Stmo. Cristo del Amor, María Stma. de la Caridad and San Juan Evangelista.
Hermitage of Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz
Its construction dates from the sixteenth century, then expanded in the eighteenth century with a niche tower. It consists of a single nave, in its interior we can observe the choir that uses a Tuscan column to support it and that sinks in the baptismal font located underneath it. On the outside, the carved stone and armour stone façade, its small bell tower and, above all, the exterior of the octagonal dressing room that is supported by a glazed ceramic roof stand out.
