Half a mile west of Marbella is the nice village of San Pedro de Alcantara. San Pedro is a small friendly pueblo ( village in Spanish) that has grown up but still retained its charm. Along the San Pedro 's waterfront are cozy Chiringuitos, which are beach restaurants. Here you sit and eat near the sea, both at lunch and at dinner. Every Thursday there is a market with lots of exciting things. It is always full of people on market days. Beaches are wide and kept very clean. San Pedro has history back to the fourth century when there was a Roman bath here. Las Bovedas is an 8-sided building from that time. Nearby are the ruins of the Basilica, hidden among eucalyptus trees in the neighborhood of Linda Vista. Recent studies date the ruins to the seventh century and it is today regarded as one of the most important finds of the kind in the whole of Spain. The artifacts discovered here can be seen at the museums in Malaga and Marbella. They include bones, personal ornaments and clay vases. San Pedro is located next door to the little finer Puerto Banus and Nueva Andalucia. Malaga airport is about 1 hour from San Pedro.
