What will we see?
Plaza de la Constitución
Its name and even the square itself has changed a lot lately, becoming pedestrian on 2002. As a curious fact, the fountain is not in the middle of the square, the reason, the huge amount of public events and celebration. Undoubtedly the most emblematic square of Málaga.
Calle Marqués de Larios
Inaugurated on 1891, its modern design and location, connecting the city center with the port, made Málaga neighbours to fall in love with it right away. Just as Plaza de la Constitución, it became pedestrian on 2002. Mainly a shopping area, it’s one of the most expensive areas to rent a shop in Málaga.
Cathedral of Málaga
Built between 1528 and 1782, a mixture of styles that goes from Gothic to even some neoclassic architectural elements. It´s also remarkable that the cathedral was actually never finished, being the lack of its South tower the most significant incomplete part. Taking the nickname of La Manquita (the English translation would be something like ¨the one-armed lady¨)
Calle San Agustín
Called the Knights Street after the reconquest of Malaga because of the amount of people from the cavalry that started living there, the name changed to San Agustin because of a nearby monastery from the Augustinian order. Among others, we´ll discover Buenavista´s palace, a building from 16th century that contains the main Picasso museum of Málaga.
Bodega el Pimpi
At the heart of Málaga, is hard to explain the importance of El Pimpi for our city. An historical building, a winery, a restaurant, a museum, a meeting point for malagueños and visitors, a place which gathers together culture and gastronomy, tradition and trendiness.
Our roman theater was built on 1st century. buried by the Muslims, stayed underground until 1951, time when Malagueños discovered it. Originally with capacity for 1.200 people and covered by marble, the theater was used to do performances, operas but also votes such as referendums of roman´s public life.
Alcazaba is a muslin fortress, its construction ended on 1026 b.c. A military building but a palace too, being the central office of the city muslin government. On 1931, Alcazaba was declared an historic and artistic monument of real cultural interest by the Spanish government followed by several restorations over the 20th century.
Castillo de Gibralfaro
Even if we won´t climb Gibralfaro hill, we´ll see and talk on our Free tour of the second muslin fortress. A castle that could control and keep an eye on the whole city of Málaga. Because of this location, the castle provides the best views of the city, the harbor, the beach and the northern mountains.
Originally projected in 1788 to attend the traffic of the port. Our Customs Palace never became one. It had several functions until today being one of the largest and most interesting museums in Europe. This building is the Museum of Fine Arts of Malaga and the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Malaga.
