Paseo de los Poetas Andaluces (Andalusian Poets' Garden) is an interesting concept. The casual passer-by walking down Calle Jesús Cautivo and glancing into the garden could be forgiven for thinking they have been transported back to the Middle Ages or a Game of Thrones set where the heads of criminals are impaled on stakes. Nothing could be further from the truth. More>

Route of Artistic Murals is an inovative iniciative of the local mayor, Jose Maria Garcia Urbano which was started in September 2012. It now consists of about 70 murals in the town centre and near centre districts.The objective was to improve and enliven some of Estepona’s forgotten or neglected central districts and it was hoped that the series of murals that are spread across the town would put Estepona murals on the tourist map, helping to make Estepona a cultural destination. It was clearly a successful initiative and looking at the wide variety of murals it is clear to see why tourists and residents alike are eager to follow the route and view each of the murals.
