Whatever you need to know about La Cañada Shopping Centre, I´m sure you’ll find the answer here. If not, come and ask us on The Costa Del Sol Travel Forum.
La Cañada is the main indoor shopping centre for Marbella. In fact, other than El Corte Ingles and Marina Banus in Puerto Banus, it´s the only Shopping Centre between Miramar Fuengirola and Algeciras which is why it´s so busy at times. It´s also busy because the parking is free and the whole shopping centre is undercover come rain or shine.
This Shopping Centre has seen some major changes over the years. Would you believe us if we told you it stopped at Apple? Yes it was a really small, dark, smokey shopping centre.
La Cañada is home to all the Spanish shops like Zara, Mango, Massimo Dutti etc. Alcampo is a fantastic supermarket that sells everything from milk to fridges and just outside the shopping centre, you will find Leroy Merlin (like B&Q), Worten Electrical Store, Sport Zone and Norauto Car Garage. In the underground car park you will find Camelot Park for kids.
The latest additions to La Cañada are JD Sports, NYX Make Up and a fabulous mens barbershop.
** (situated in a parade of shops inside the Alcampo supermarket area). We do our best to keep this updated but please do check with the official La Cañada Website.
La Cañada is located on the A7-E15 (N340) ring road around Marbella, on the junction for “Ojen”, “Parque Commercial” and McDonalds. When leaving La Cañada to go direction Puerto Banus, you can either drive straight up back to the large roundabout and then join the N340 or you can join via the slip road by the Bomberos (Fire Station, just to the left of the Petrol Station). We personally recommend joining via this slip road as where these two exits meet is an awful blackspot where many accidents occur.
There are 2 types of buses. Main buses and local. The local buses called “Urbanos de Marbella” do go to La Cañada. Line 1, Line 3, Line 6 and the Night Bus. More information on Buses to La Canada Shopping Centre
We often get asked if there is a train station at La Canada Shopping Centre. Unfortunately there isn´t a train in Marbella, the train only goes as far as Fuengirola. You can read about trains here.
There are two taxi ranks outside the main entrance. Marbella Taxis have now all been fitted with meters, so you can relax that you shouldn’t be overcharged. Their Telephone number is 952774488
Camelot Park is a ball park for kids. You can either stay or leave your kids there whilst you shop. Camelot park is located in the Underground Car Park and normally open from 10:00am till 10:00pm, but I would call to check first of all on 952 764 766 or 669 378 764 or visit Camelot Marbella Website
Cinesa Cinema is upstairs La Canada and has an 8 Screens. Generally all films are in Spanish. You can check films showing, prices and book tickets here Cinema Website. If you want to see a film in English, we recommend going to Puerto Banus Cinema, although they have started showing the odd film in Original Version.
Toilets can be found upstairs by Chicco, down passage way near Marks & Spencers and also opposite Alcampo Entrance downstairs. There are baby changing facilities and designated toilets for the disabled.
There are lifts and escalators in the centre of the complex by the Apple Store, next to Marks & Spencers and a glass lift in the centre near Zara.
There is also designated parking for disabled drivers. We have only seen parking for Mother & Toddler at Miramar Fuengirola Shopping Centre.
There are loads of places to park and best of all its FREE. During the summer months we would advise parking underground as the cars get exceptionally hot. Wherever you park remember the number of your space as all the parking lanes look the same. If we ever park outside we always lose our car and are the idiots wandering around for ages click the car key in hope we will see the lights on the car flashing.
Marbella Feria (the fair) is situated just next to La Cañada. The Feria is on around June 7th to the 14th each year. (dates vary). You can park in the car park and then walk or take the little train up to the feria.
Tip: If you park outside, watch your items at all times. There have been numerous thefts of purses and bags from the front seat whilst people put their items in the boot. Be alert and be very suspicious of anyone talking to you or asking questions whilst loading items in your car. We have had people coming up to us just as we are getting in the car asking for money with some story about their car breaking down. Don’t fool for it please!
