Casa del Corregidor, Marbella Spain

 Casa del Corregidor built in 1552 is one of the oldest stately houses in Marbella, Spain.  While this picture looks like a power washing or painting is needed
 This part is quite beautiful.  Click to enlarge and see the details on the 2nd and 3rd floors.  These area's are not open to the public.  The bottom level is a restaurant.  Were we ate 2 scrumptious meals, because one just wasn't enough........more on that tomorrow in part two of this post...D for dinner.  The building has a blend of 3 types of architecture, Gothis, Renaissance, and Mudejar.  
 The historic sign tells us the house was that of The Chief Magistrate.
Another shot on a different day, light was a bit better.  Please click to enlarge and look at the balcony area in.

A building 462 years old....in the Olde Town Marbella.  We loved it there.  Put this on your list, as an historic spot, and pop in tomorrow ......come hungry the food is superb!

  1. Good morning Sandy :) I love the balconies in Spain ... I haven't travelled much there - only to Bilbao and Malaga and Granada - but I loved the country and plan to go back again. Great pictures here - you're making me want to pack my suitcase and get out on the road again :)
    for some reason my signature link that I was using for most of the A to Z doesn't seem to be working anymore but thankfully there's a URL thing here...

    1. Not sure why you signature thing wouldn't work, I've not changed any of my settings, maybe it was just a strange computer thing this am. I've not talked to anyone who disliked Spain.

  2. Marbella is a gorgeous city in Spain. We went there for the bullfight, and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful!

  4. How wonderful. 462 years old. I'm just in awe. I've never been out of Canada and the US, so I've not had a chance to experience something of such an age. One day!
