Take your cheap car hire in Estepona and ride along the history of the town!
Estepona was for many years subject to the jurisdiction of Marbella, with Doña Juana La Loca as governor of these kingdoms, due to the absence of the Catholic Monarchs.
It had a little over 600 neighbours then. It was only with King Felipe Quinto that he obtained his total and absolute independence on April 21, 1729.
Walking through the village we will find the Clock Tower that is still clinging to the heart of the village. It was in the sixteenth century when a church was built of which only the tower remains.
We will also come across the 18th-century church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, which was once a Franciscan convent.
The tranquillity of its streets and squares changes in summer, when the population almost triples.
With 21 kilometres of coastline, there are many beaches to choose from, including those of La Rada, Bahía Dorada, del Cristo and Costa Natura, the latter being one of the first nudist beaches in Andalusia.
In front of the sea, Sierra Bermeja, which has a Spanish fir tree at the top of the massif (in Los Reales) at an altitude of 1450 metres, where hawks, eagles and even some otters live.
The mountains become gentle hills as we approach the town where the Los Pedregales Municipal Park is located, around the hermitage of San Isidro, patron saint of the village.
Naturally, tourism, construction and real estate supply are the economic driving forces of this population.
However, they are not reluctant to forget the old traditions, neither fishing nor agriculture, as they still grow and sell citrus and tropical fruits, which continue to support a part of the local economy.
Next to the fishing port is the marina, as it could not be less in a tourist city. But in Estepona we will also see the other components of a high-quality tourism: golf courses, luxurious hotels, exclusive urbanizations…
However, there is a differentiating factor in Estepona. And it is their attempt to be also an outstanding cultural focus.
There was a family, Don José and Doña María Nadal, who wanted to repay the people for all the affection they had received and decided to leave their heritage to create a foundation whose sole objective was to create a university centre.

The Castle of Nicio and the Clock Tower are preserved from the period of Muslim rule.
The Castillo del Nicio is the ruins of a 9th century fortress located in the upper part of El Padrón. The walls and several towers are still standing today.
The Clock Tower, in the historic centre, corresponds to the old minaret of a mosque that became a church after the Castilian occupation of the town.
The tower became a bell tower and in the 18th century the neoclassical style dome was added, decorated with garlands, volutes and bucraneals.
After the Castilian conquest, the town of Estepona was attacked by pirates who prevented repopulation by capturing the inhabitants to sell them as slaves.
From the watchtowers there was a warning of the imminent attack.
These towers are the 10th century Guadalmansa tower, the 14th century Baños tower, and the 16th century Arroyo Vaquero, Saladillo, Saladavieja, Padrón and Velerín towers.
The Castle of San Luis is a fortress built by Queen Isabel La Católica in the 16th century to reinforce the walls of the town and facilitate its repopulation. Today, only the ruins are preserved.
