If you delight in ancient history, you won't want to miss this tour. With 600,000 inhabitants, Málaga is the major port city of Andalusia. Rich archaeological remains and fascinating monuments are the legacy of many civilizations.

From the outside, you will see the Alcazaba -- a historic palace that was built in the 11th century to be the residence of the Arabian Caliphs (kings). It is connected by a steep path to the Gibralfaro Castle -- an ancient Moorish fortress which commands breathtaking views of the city and the bay. Your coach will transport you up the hill to visit the castle so you do not need to walk.

The Museo Picasso Málaga is run by two foundations created for the purpose of showcasing the works of the master. The Fundación Paul, Christine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso owns the museum's collection, whereas the Fundación Museo Picasso de Málaga owns the group of buildings that house it. Together the two foundations are responsible for the conservation, exhibition, study and diffusion of the art, and that the wishes of the donors are respected. At the museum, you will have time to appreciate all Picasso's styles and techniques (painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramic, graphic works) along with an exhibition with pieces dating from 1890 to 1973.
