    on the way to Marbella from Oj��n

    by lina112 Written Mar 1, 2012

    We drove from Alhaurín de la Torre taking the road A-404 to Coin where we took the road A-355 to Ojen, we took about 40 minutes from Alhaurín. From Marbella there are bus services and driving you have to go to La Cañada where you find the signs to Ojen.

    Desde Alhaurín de la Torre cogimos la A-404 hasta Coin donde cogimos la A-355 hasta llegar a Ojén, se tarde unos 40 minutos desde Alhaurín. Desde Marbella hay autobuses y conduciendo tienes que ir hasta el centro comercial La Cañada donde está la ctra A-355 hasta Ojen.

  • Where to park?

    You won't be able to park in the old village, and parking on the main road, seen here in the photo, is also very limited. Eventually we were lucky, and found a parking place, where another motorist was just leaving.. It must be worse in the summer months!
