We’ll begin our tour in the central square of Iglesia de la Encarnación, and from there set off to discover the city’s old quarter. In Spain, it’s always “la hora del vermut” or vermouth o’clock, and what better place for a first stop to whet your appetite than a typical Andalusian tavern. The stars of the show here are the cold meats, Iberian pork, and PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheeses, all washed down with one of the tavern’s famous aperitif wines.
We’ll continue through the labyrinth of small, hidden squares and narrow white streets, admiring the flowers that we spot along the way, before stopping off at one of the restaurants and flamenco-style inns that dot the city centre, where the highlight is the traditional cuisine, inspired by the mountains. Hearty tapas in a friendly and welcoming environment.
Next, we’ll leave the historic quarter behind, while remaining still inside the city centre. Our next stop is Marbella’s Alameda Park, a small green oasis surrounded by countless bars and restaurants of all kinds, from the gastronomic classics that represent the best of traditional local cuisine, to modern establishments that introduce more avant-garde elements to their menus.
We’ll finish our itinerary very close to the city’s marina, in a typical mesón tavern where we can enjoy seafood fresh from the Mediterranean. Will you join us?
