MONUMENTS

Estepona has many monuments and museums that allow visitors to discover the history of the town in a few hours of walk. Starting from the church of the Virgen de los Remedios, built in the XVIII century and that was part of a convent until 1835; the Clock Tower, founded in the XV century and which is preserved in perfect condition, and the Castle of San Luis, built in the XVI century on order of the Catholic Monarchs and that only the remains of the fortress, complete the top stops of this tour.

After visiting the historic city centre, the road to the beach leads to the Lighthouse of Punta Doncella. This building has numerous lookouts to observe the Mediterranean Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar and North Africa. In addition to its heritage value, this lighthouse is maintained operational and each day, it emits light signals that help boats holing the Strait of Gibraltar.

Lovers of natural history in Estepona can enjoy the Paleontology Museum and its collection of shellfish and invertebrates of the Pliocene, accompanied by fossils and dinosaur replicas.

On the other hand, the Bullfighting Museum, dedicated to Antonio Ordonez, collects various objects and goods related to bullfighting. From this building also, the inside of the Bullring of Estepona can be accessed, with its distinctive elliptical and asymmetrical shape.

The network of museum spaces is completed with the Ethnographic Museum, where the way of life of its inhabitants in recent centuries is shown; and Orchidarium Estepona, a building of 1,000 square meters containing more than 5,000 plants, among which more than 1,300 species of orchids from around the world are highlighted. Hence, Estepona has been described as "Garden of the Costa del Sol."
