According to legend, this place on the Mediterranean coast was a favorite of the horse goddess Epona. Here, on a sunny, picturesque coast, there was a ritual sanctuary dedicated to this goddess. A small settlement gradually grew up next to it.
Estepona is especially popular among wealthy Europeans looking for peace, although it is also suitable for a lively youth holiday. Several things make Estepona an attractive resort at once: a picturesque view of the city, many bars, entertainment venues, numerous boutiques of prestigious brands, comfortable climatic conditions, comfortable beaches and good tourist infrastructure.
As in many other cities in Spain, there are enough attractions in Estepona: these are historical monuments, museums, entertainment centers, zoos and parks..
Historical Center. The old town, which occupies the center of Estepona, looks like an ordinary provincial Andalusian village. Here, all the architecture deserves attention and deserves to be called a landmark.
The center of the Old Town is the pretty Plaza de las Flores, from which numerous narrow streets diverge in all directions: los Reyes, Sierra, Casares, Corta, San Antonio.
The sidewalks here are decorated with stone mosaics, the facades of snow-white houses are decorated with tile frescoes, and the plinths are decorated with light ceramics. On the balconies, terraces and walls of the houses there are pots and planters with flowers, and each street has its own color palette. Almost all streets of the historic center are pedestrian or with limited traffic.
Embankment Paseo Maritimo. Paseo Maritimo is a well-groomed alley with numerous flower beds, an attractive fountain, children's areas, areas for rollerblading and skateboarding, cafes and restaurants.
After 21:00, everyone who is currently in Estepona gathers here. Also, concerts are often organized here, where children and small musical groups perform. Paseo Marítimo stretches for 3 km along Playa La Rada, ending near the famous local attraction - the fishing port.
Port Deportivo. The local port is a modern marina with 447 berths. Here you can rent a yacht for walking or fishing, and it will be much cheaper than in other cities in Spain. Puerto Deportivo is also an area for walking, where there is a specific smell of the sea and coastal restaurants-cafes-bars with slightly exorbitant prices. Every day, a fish market unfolds in the port, where you can buy the freshest seafood. On Sundays, there is a street market that offers textiles, leather goods, and souvenirs.
