Marbella council has approved a project to restore and refurbish the cloisters and chapel of the old Trinidad convent. The mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, has highlighted that this project, which will receive an investment of 1.8 million euros, is part of “a wider cultural revival in the old town”, including the Museo del Grabado (print museum) and the Hospital Real de la Misericordia.

The convent is in the centre of the old town, on the corner of Calles Salinas and Viento, next to the Hospital Bazán, now the print museum.

The plan for the building is to create a reception area, lift, an exhibition and a multi-use space, as well as stairs and lobbies. Upstairs there will be another exhibition area.

As parts of the building are different heights, there is a need to connect the two different parts.
