Description of Estepona

The old town of Estepona dates back to Roman and Moorish times. Well worth a visit is the clock tower, the Los Remedios church and the Mercado Municipal, a covered fruit, vegetable and fresh fish market. On the outskirts of the town is an unusual asymmetrical bullring which hosts shows and concerts.

You’re more likely to pass the time of day over tapas with local people than to run into hordes of tourists, although it is becoming increasingly popular, particularly with golfers. There are sights to see – the clock tower, Los Remedios Church – and chic restaurants and bars around the harbour to sample.
