Discover historical sights

Malaga is home to spectacular historical sights, none more impressive than the palatial fortress, Alcazaba, the best-preserved Moorish structure in the country.

Arguably one of the most iconic attractions in the city, it’s situated at the foot of the Gibralfaro hill. Here, you’ll also find a well-preserved Roman theatre.

Not far from the Alcazaba is the Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga, nicknamed ‘La Manquita’ or ‘The One-Armed Lady’ due to only one of its towers ever being completed.

Malaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol – literally translated as the ‘sunshine coast’ – so it goes without saying that there are some fantastic beaches in the area. A 30-minute walk from the city centre brings you to Pedregalejo beach, one of the best in the area.

One of Malaga’s many highlights is its superb port just outside the city centre. Lined with bustling shops and restaurants, it’s the perfect place to grab a refreshing glass of something cold and watch the yachts and ships go by.
