Guide to Malaga

Virtual tour of Málaga

Málaga today is one of the largest administrative and cultural centers of Andalusia, the Spanish province. It is interesting to visit the city not only in summer - even in winter there is a place to walk around. Moreover, thanks to the compact location of local attractions, you can get acquainted with the treasures of Málaga in a couple of days. The first stop to explore the city is the monumental Renaissance cathedral. The temple has only one tower, so it is nicknamed one-armed by the local population.

The defensive structures of Alcabas and Hibralfaro are also interesting. Fortified from enemies palaces were created in XI and XIV centuries respectively. There are in Malaga and cultural monuments created before our era. In the I century before the birth of Christ was built Roman amphitheater, perfectly preserved today.

The walk through the Old Town is crowned by the Constitution Square - a concentration of fountains and houses of ancient architecture. From it starts the street of luxury boutiques and mansions Marques de Larios - another modern tourist attraction. Málaga is also known as the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. Fans of painting are sure to visit the Plaza Merced in his memory. Málaga is also the birthplace of Antonio Banderas.

But the interesting places in the city do not end here...

Tips for tourists

Málaga is known for its, little-understood classification of coffee. Here, instead of the familiar latte and espresso, there are "clouds" and "shade".
Local shopping is characterized by a wonderful assortment, but rather high prices. Especially when it comes to Marques de Larios Street.
The local cuisine is a paradise for fish lovers. Fried sardines and anchovies, as well as clams in wine, are a must-try.
