Estepona is a region, located in “la Comarca” of the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. It is located west of Marbella and its resort town is also called Estepona, as is the case with most regions across the Costa del Sol. The coastal stretch between Marbella’s Guadalmina and the town of Estepona is known as the New Golden Mile. Nestled in a spectacular, tropical landscape, Estepona offers affordable luxury living in a peaceful, somewhat secluded environment.
The town itself has grown over the years a mix of concrete buildings surrounding the quaint old town offering splendid views of the Mediterranean Sea. It’s Paseo Marítimo, (boardwalk), is a palm-lined promenade along the seafront next to Playa de la Rada beach, Nearby is a wealth of restaurants and water sports facilities at the Puerto Deportivo, a charming fisherman port and the famous cove of Pay del Cristo. At the centre of Estepona, the town, lies the original white-washed old town, once a typical fisherman village, surrounding the flower-filled square of Plaza de las Flores, home to eclectic artwork of the “Colección Garó”.
The area has been occupied since prehistoric times; stone-age tools and dolmens have been discovered. Romans occupied the area, but a seaquake destroyed their town in the 4th century.
In 1342, the Battle of Estepona took place in the Bay of Estepona between the fleet of the Kingdom of Aragon and the Marinid Dynasty. The with the Aragonese fleet won but were subsequently destroyed near Gibraltar and Christian forces ultimately won the Siege of Algeciras.
In 1457 Henry IV of Castile took over Estepona from the Moors. During this time a church was built to replace what was previously a mosque. The town grew all around this church to be destroyed once again. What is left is the old clock tower (and the nearby Simon Fernandez school).
Estepona was governed as an administrative district of Marbella up until 1729 when Philip V of Spain granted Estepona its town charter. It was not until the early 2000s that Estepona started to convert from a small fisherman town to a bustling holiday resort.
