Malaga Sights

Approximately 4 Hours
Strenuous Activity 

If you delight in ancient history, you won't want to miss this tour. With half a million inhabitants, Málaga is the major coastal city of Andalusia and is a genuinely traditional city of this province. Its gritty individualism remains untouched by tourism and, to a large extent, the passage of time. Many ancient civilizations have left their mark, which you'll discover in Málaga's rich archaeological remains and fascinating monuments. Gibralfaro Castle is an ancient Moorish fortress that commands breathtaking views of the city and the bay.

Your next stop will be at the Renaissance-style cathedral built between the 16th and 18th centuries. It is now a National Monument and boasts a Baroque choir by Pedro de Mena, as well as some fine examples of Spanish Renaissance sculpture. Just a short walk from the cathedral, you will view from the outside the Roman Theatre and the Alcazaba -- the latter is a historic palace that was built in the 11th century to be the residence of the Arabian caliphs (kings).

Take in the many sights from your coach on a panoramic drive through town, including the façade of the busiest bullring in Spain, as well as City Hall, the courthouse and the Central Post Office -- all charming 19th-century buildings.
