The first city we are going to make port in is Marbella. In our last post we said we were going to start in Malaga, but then we decided we couldn’t leave Marbella out simply because a sunset in Marbella can be breath-taking.
Marbella (Spain) is nowadays a modern tourist city, but this development only came by the second half of the 20th century. Before that, it was a fishing port, an agricultural area, or a land rich in magnetic iron. It was also of interest to Romans and Muslims, and it preserves historic remains to show this rich past. There are even footprints left behind by prehistoric inhabitants, with Palaeolithic and Neolithic remains in the area.
The city is easily accessible with connections to main roads, airports, high-speed trains and of course, it has a strong connection to the sea and its four marinas welcome small and medium-size vessels. You won’t find trouble to get to Marbella and chances are you are going to find it during a bright sunny day!
