Porcelanosa Bus Stops next to the Palacio de Congresos de Marbella

Debra wrote to me to ask which bus stop was closest to the Palacio de Congresos de Marbella. She was travelling into Marbella from La Cala de Mijas on the Fuengirola to Marbella bus. I thanked her very much for LIKING Gomarbella on the contact page and explained as follows:
When you get on the bus in La Cala, stay on the bus all the way through the centre of Marbella until you get to the Porcelanosa bus stop. That's where you get off. The Fuengirola to Marbella bus then does a right turn immediately after the Porcelanosa bus stops and leaves the main road and starts to climb up towards the Marbella bus station. You must get off just before it leaves the main road. Porcelanosa is the name of a big shop on the left hand side of the road.

The Porcelanosa bus stop gets its name from the Porcelanosa ceramic shop on the sea side of the road. Porcelanosa is an upmarket ceramics shop and Isabe Preysler who was married to Julio Iglesias lends her name to the Porcelanosa shops. Coming from Fuengirola the shop will be on the left. Coming from Estepona the shop will be on the right. Below is the bus stop where travellers from Estepona will get off.

Travelling from Fuengirola, bus travellers will get off at the Porcelanosa bus stop on the right hand side of the road, next to the Mercadona supermarket. The two Porcelanosa bus stops are almost opposite each other.

The copper tower in the centre of the busy roundabout next to the Palacio de Congresos de Marbella is known as 'El Pirulin' or 'The Torch' by Marbella residents. Peering through the windscreen of the bus it is a clear marker of where to get off. Travellers from the centre of Marbella or Fuengirola must get off before the 'El Pirulin' roundabout. Travellers from Estepona or San Pedro must get off at the Porcelanosa bus stop after the 'El Pirulin' roundabout.

From either of the bus stops walk 300 metres at the most on the seaside of the road in the direction of Puerto Banus and the Marbella Palacio de Congresos hall is right there. Next to the Copper Tower roundabout is an Opencor supermarket where the visitor can top up phone cards and buy everything from water to food and foreign newspapers.

A busy congress was underway at the Palacio de Congresos whenI took these pictures and the organisation looked excellent with registration desks, welcoming officials and a full complement of local police, Red Cross and a waiting taxi fleet.
