It was ordered to be built in 1568 (16th century). In the corner on the right and on the façade there is a sundial, some coats of arms and some commemorative stone tombstones alluding to the extension of the building and the channelling of water to the public fountains, which are conserved in perfect condition.
Also noteworthy is its wide forged iron balloonage, its magnificent Mudejar façade and a series of wall paintings with heraldic motifs, the coat of arms of Philip II and of the city of Marbella that are preserved in the old courthouse.
This is an interesting 16th century building. It was the residence of Don Alonso de Bazán, Mayor of the Castle and perpetual Councillor of the city, who later ordered it to be converted into a hospital for the poor.
Its construction combines Renaissance, Gothic and Mudejar elements. Nowadays, it is the headquarters of the Foundation of the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engraving.
From San Pedro Alcántara, heading towards the beach, you reach the Linda Vista area, considered an important site of historical remains. The Vega del Mar Paleochristian Basilica is one of the most important examples in Spain of the Paleochristian period (4th century).
The Basilica was surrounded by a Visigothic necropolis. It was discovered in the early years of the 20th century. Among the discoveries were objects that are now on display in the National Archaeological Museum.
Originating from the 3rd century, they were discovered in 1926. The most definite conclusion of the study of the vaults is that they were Roman thermal baths, although there are some who consider that they were large deposits for collecting the water that led to the nearby aqueducts.

Its construction dates from the 10th century and materials from a pre-existing Roman building were reused in its factory, as can be seen in the three Ionic capitals that can be seen in Calle Trinidad. It underwent several refurbishments until the 18th century, when it lost its military use and became part of the urban landscape.
Discover the most historic chapels and churches in Marbella. From the well-known church of La Encarnación to the Chapel of San Juan de Dios.
Leaving the town centre in the direction of Puerto Banús, on the side of the beach, we can visit the remains of a Hispano-Roman village. They date from the I-II century A.D. and were excavated and exposed as we can see them today in 1962.
Its name comes from the river where it was built. A beautiful mosaic pavement remains from a house which in its time had a structure of 5 rooms surrounding an interior patio.
