NAGUELES PARK, SIERRA BLANCA, MARBELLA
Nagueles Park is a natural pine forest located adjacent to one of Marbella’s prime luxury residential areas, Sierra Blanca.
Giving residents and visitors the opportunity to relax in a peaceful environment, shaded by pine trees, Nagueles Park is popular with families, groups of friends and couples seeking tranquility, nature and fresh air.
At around 200 metres above sea level and set in the shadow of the Sierra Blanca mountain range, the vast park has a lot to offer, including twenty-four barbecue plots, a dog play zone, car park and a youth hostel. It covers an area of about 10 hectares.
The park is also home to La Ermita de San Bernabé, the chapel of the patron saint of Marbella. Each year as part of Marbella town’s festivities, there is a Sunday procession of pilgrims and livestock right from the Brotherhood’s base in the centre of town to the chapel in the park, followed by an afternoon of festivities, food, drink and celebration.
This park on the periphery of Sierra Blanca offers a fabulous opportunity to get away from the busy coastal areas and enjoy seeing a small glimpse of rural Spain. In addition it provides a broad expanse of greenery right on the border of Sierra Blanca, adding to the protected natural mountain scenery that this area backs on to.
Within the gates of the exclusive S urbanisation, just next to the park, you’ll find a mix of large, luxurious villas and Sierra Blanca mansions, as well as a few elegant and modern apartment complexes. Most offer great views of La Concha mountain and the Mediterranean, as far out as Gibraltar and the African coastline. All the amenities of Marbella and Puerto Banús are easily accessible in just a few minutes by car, including international schools, supermarkets, sports facilities, shops and restaurants.
