How to Get There

Since it is located right on the Western Costa del Sol Estepona can be reached with perfect ease by the AP-7 expressway or the coastal highway N-340: Just follow the road signs.

The village’s origin is rather confusing, but it seems that the Phoenicians, who established a commercial trading post at this point, called it Astapa. Some historians connect Estepona to the Iberian town of Saldaba, which others think was in Marbella, and there are those who cite Cilciana as the origin of the village. Be that as it may, on the hill of El Torreón ruins have been found that well may be of this primitive settlement.

Geographical Location: in the western part of the Western Costa del Sol. The northern area of the municipality adjoins the Ronda region, while the village itself is located on the coastal fringe. The average rainfall is 900 litres per square metre and the average annual temperature is 17º C.
Sights: The Virgen de los Remedios church, in the Plaza de San Francisco, stands out prominently in the village. Its large tower has four levels and the uppermost is crowned by a roof of bi-colour ceramic that can be seen from any point in the village.

The Torre del Reloj (Clock Tower) was part of a former parish church that was built in the last third of the fifteenth century. It underwent an extensive restoration in the nineteenth century that followed the classic style and, even resorted to the Baroque, a style that has been popular in Andalusia since its first appearance.

The Antonio Ordóñez Bullfighting Museum, also at the Plaza de Toros, has a collection of numerous photographs, posters and costumes that belonged to the most famous bullfighters.

The Museo de Paleontología (Museum of Palaeontology) presents an instructive display of the varieties of fossils from the Pliocene period that have been found within the boundaries of Estepona. It contains more than 2,000 fossils of 600 species.

The Museo Arqueológico (Museum of Archaeology) has a collection of relics from all eras that have been found in the various archaeological sites in this territory, from the Palaeolithic period until the fifteenth century. These last museums are located on the grounds of the Plaza de Toros.

The Kinos Group has a branch in Estepona, located in Arena Beach urbanization.
