Istan is a small village that is hidden under Sierra Blanca mountain, at the head of Rio Verde river.
It is a stunning village with amazing mountain views and exceptional panoramas, very close to Sierra Nieves Natural Park.
It is 20 minutes away from Marbella and Puerto Banus.
There is plenty of cultural heritage so you can visit an abundance of history such as Escalante Tower, the San Miguel Hermitage, the San Miguel Church and Plaza El Calvario.
The village is filled with drinking fountains that can be heard during day and night.
Presa de la Concepcion dam stands close to the village and it was built in 1972.
The treasure of these fountains is that they all have drinking water in the purest unprocessed form coming directly from the mountain.
Many tourists stop here to taste these pure waters.
