The Best of Malaga
The city of Malaga, the largest on the Costa del Sol and capital city of Malaga Providence in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia, is a picturesque one full of interesting architecture, museums, shopping, cuisine, beaches and hiking.
Your walking tour starts at the Plaza de la Merced, one of the most important squares of Malaga. On this guided tour you will learn the history as well as the stories and secrets of the city and its people. Walk along Calle Larios, a popular pedestrian street lined with shops that leads to Plaza de la Constitucion. This public square in the middle of the city is the site of many citywide events and celebrations.
At the Plaza del Obispo you will enter the Renaissance-style Cathedral of Malaga. Commonly referred to as La Manquita, or "one-armed woman" due to only one of its two towers being completed, this iconic church contains impressive artworks and is the most significant monument in the city.
Conclude your tour with a visit to the Roman Theater and the 12th century Moorish castle of Alcazaba. Throughout your time in Malaga you will have plenty of opportunities to take photos, see the magic corners and panoramic places that marked Picasso and pause for a delicious glass of local wine.

We were met by our guide outside the port terminal and we were lucky enough to have a private tour for our 5 family members. Our guide listened to what we were interested in seeing and adapted the tour to our requests. We spent time at the Alcazaba and were able to avoid the crowds. Great experience and highly recommend this excursion.
