Nueva Andalucía Area
Nueva Andalucia, Golf Valley and Exquiste Private Villas
To the north of Puerto Banus lies the vibrant neighbourhood of Nueva Andalucia. Nueva Andalucia is considered one of the largest neighbourhoods in Marbella because it extends over several square kilometres. Just like Puerto Banus, Nueva Andalucia was created by Madrid developer Jose Banus Mas, who came to Marbella in 1962 and bought up the land. Nueva Andalucia is more than a neighbourhood, it's a lifestyle, and attracts thousands of tourists every summer.
It is often referred to as the ''Golf Valley'' due to the 5 Golf Courses in the area. The architecture is typically Andalucian and because of the elevation, the houses are blessed with spectacular views of the Mediterranean and beyond.The entrance to the area is found up by the bullring behind the Puerto Banus Casino and the Andalucia Plaza Hotel. The bullring is an impressive structure and it is well worth a visit. On Saturdays, the bullring is the location for a vast street market with stalls selling everything from ornaments and decorative items to clothes and electrical goods. From the bullring, the road carries up into the Commercial Central Plaza that consists of a series of shops, a supermarket, bars, a gym and several restaurants.
