At Marbella’s Old Town, you can find many jewellery and fashion firms, such as Seijo o Suárez, haved moved into this area, having chosen a spot in the charming midst of Marbella town, making the simple business of going shopping a complete experience.
Just outside Marbella, a 10 minute drive away is La Cañada, a large shopping mall. To get to this large shopping complex drive onto the A7 (N340) road heading towards Marbella and after approx. 250 mtrs take the first turnoff for Calahonda. Travel along this road until you come to junction, turn right and follow the signs for the AP7 Autovia. At the top of this road you will come across a Tollbooth, cost 2/3 euros, and follow the signs for Marbella and the South onto the Motorway. After 5-10 minutes of driving look for the La Cañada Centre on your right, it sits right on the Autovia, you cannot miss it! Good for fashion shopping, electric goods and items for your holiday homes. Great place to visit if you encounter a rainy day on the Costa del Sol.
Another great place to do a spot of retail therapy is the Miramar shopping complex, which is located just off the A7 (N340) coast road, near the old fort, as you travel out of Fuengirola towards Marbella. It is about a 10min drive from Riviera del Sol.
