A visit to the center of Malaga would not be complete without exploring its most precious gem, the Alcazaba.

A short distance from the Alcazaba is the Roman Theater, an ancient amphitheater that was discovered in the 1950s. It is a fascinating testament to Malaga’s Roman past and a must-visit for history enthusiasts.

Right next to the Alcazaba stands the majestic Cathedral of Malaga, popularly known as “La Manquita” due to its unfinished tower. This Renaissance cathedral is an architectural and cultural landmark of the city. Admire its impressive facade and explore its interior, where valuable artworks and beautiful architectural details can be found.

Downtown Malaga is also a perfect place for a pleasant stroll along cobblestone streets and to discover charming squares such as the Plaza de la Constitución and the Plaza de la Merced. These squares are surrounded by cafes, restaurants, and shops, where you can enjoy delicious local cuisine and relax while observing the daily life of the people of Malaga.

Downtown Malaga is also famous for its world-renowned museums. The Picasso Museum Malaga, located in the Buenavista Palace, houses an extensive collection of works by the famous painter Pablo Picasso. From his early creations to his masterpieces, the museum offers a fascinating insight into Picasso’s artistic evolution.
