A step away from the Old Town, its origin dates back to the eighteenth century, derived from the growth of the city outside the walls.
When the threat of the corsairs diminishes and the coast is protected with towers beacons (many visible today), the neighborhood begins to develop with very humble homes. The small parcels destined to the agricultural activity were shared with the house. They were distributed by “the grace of the Marquis of Castellón and the Alcaide del Castillo”, in 1735.
In one of its streets is the “Cruz del Humilladero”, the place where Ferdinand the Catholic accepted the keys of the city from the hands of the Arabs, on June 11, 1485.
Today, the “Barrio Nuevo” is articulated along 7 pedestrian streets (Malaga, Sun, Lucero, Luna, San Ramón, Rio and San Cristóbal) that have managed to maintain their traditional air despite the proximity to the traffic of people and vehicles. Simple houses of lime, tile and wooden beams, which formerly had its garden and a small corral. The flowers decorate the doors and balconies of the houses giving freshness and a nice picture of typical Andalusian street.
Numerous civilizations settled in Marbella before the thousands of tourists who visit it today. Surely the weather had something to do with it. With an average temperature of 18.5º and 320 days of sunshine per year, climate is the main tourist attraction.
