Essential Things to See in Estepona Old Town

Estepona

There are loads of things to see and do in the old town of Estepona. If you’re only here for a short time here’s the essentials that you don’t want to miss.

The Old Town of Estepona is a delightful maze of narrow streets with colorful flower pots and historic landmarks. One of the best ways to enjoy is to simply wander the streets and discover hidden restaurants, cafes, and squares by chance.

If you’d like some great starting points here are some essential things to see in the Old Town of Estepona:

Plaza de las Flores

Plaza de las Flores is the heart of Estepona’s Old Town. You’d probably say it’s the “main square”.

This square is surrounded by cafes and restaurants, making it a perfect spot to relax and soak in Estepona’s atmosphere.

As the name suggests the square is full of beautiful flowers.

You’ll find plenty of places to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat while watching the world go by.

A couple of my favorites are La Sureña and El Descaro.

For an even better view head to the rooftop bar of Hotel El Pillar.

Paseo Maritimo

Some would say it’s the best part of Estepona – and they’re probably right!

The Paseo Marítimo is a scenic promenade that runs along Estepona’s coastline.

It’s the perfect place for a leisurely walk, a bike ride, or simply to enjoy the stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.

The promenade is lined with palm trees, flowers, plants, fountains and benches – you really have to see it to believe it.

Along the way, you’ll find numerous beach bars (chiringuitos), where you can savor fresh seafood and refreshing drinks.

For children, there is a large, fully-equipped playground too!

The many murals around the town

Estepona has over 40 murals that decorate the buildings around the town.

You might not have time to see them all, but some really impressive ones are worth a look, like this one of a girl with a hose pipe.

You can pick up a map at the tourist information office in Plaza de las Flores.

Or you can Download the full map of the murals for your phone..

Plaza Ortiz

Plaza Ortiz is one of my favorite squares in the Estepona. It’s surrounded by bars and restaurants and has a love fountain in the center.

During the day it’s a peaceful place where you can enjoy a coffee at Tolone or The Hotel.

At night, it comes alive as the restaurants fill up and the square fills with the hustle and bustle of an evening out.

The Orchidarium

The Estepona Orchidarium is a must-visit attraction in Estepona.

The glass building contains over 5,000 plants, including more than 1,300 species of orchids.

The Orchidarium also features a waterfall, inside!

It’s a peaceful oasis in the heart of the town and something you have to experience.

Castillo de San Luis

The Castillo de San Luis is a historical landmark that dates back to the 16th century.

Although only a few ruins remain today, the castle has recently had some work done so that you can visit and explore what’s left.

The castle is located near Plaza del Reloj. The nearby clock tower, Torre del Reloj, is also worth a visit a look too.
