ABSTRACT Five Miocene intrusive complexes are located along the N-trending, nearly trench-parallel San Lorenzo-Balmaceda Lineament in southern Patagonia.
These complexes are characterized by mildly alkaline to calc-alkaline magmatism.
The coastline is heavily urbanised; most of the land not built up with golf courses has been developed with small residential areas. Marbella is bordered on the north by the municipalities of Istán and Ojén, on the northwest by Benahavís, on the west by Estepona and on the northeast by Mijas. The Sierra Blanca is most centrally located in the province, looming over the old village.
This mountain range has three peaks: La Concha, located further west at 1,215 m above sea level, Juanar Cross, located eastward (within the municipality of Ojen) at 1,178 m above sea level, and the highest, Mount Lastonar, located between the two at 1,270 metres.
The city also has a significant archaeological heritage, The Marbella municipality occupies a strip of land that extends along forty-four kilometres (27 miles) of coastline of the Penibético region, sheltered by the slopes of the coastal mountain range, which includes the Bermeja, Palmitera, Royal, White and Alpujata sub-ranges.
