Other notable facts about San Pedro de Alcantara?
An urban area dependent on the city of Marbella, whose origin is in the town built by the Marquis de Duero in 1860, to house the settlers who worked in the sugar cane and cotton plantations and in the sugar mill, which still conserves the building.
Nowadays it has become a first-class tourist center, with numerous luxury developments, golf courses, magnificent beaches, although it retains features of its colonial past.
Although the history of San Pedro Alcántara is somewhat recent (almost a century and a half since the Marquis del Duero founded the Colony), historical testimonies of a more distant past remain, such as Las Bóvedas, a Roman building of the third century, in ruins; the Paleo-Christian Basilica of Vega del Mar, from the 4th century (monument of historical interest) or the Watchtower, from the 16th century.
The origin of San Pedro Alcántara is due to General Manuel Gutiérrez de la Concha and Irigoyen, the first Marquis del Duero, who, under the Land Colonization Law established in Spain in 1855, creates the Agricultural Colony of San Pedro de Alcántara.
