The free tour of Malaga

Join the best Free Tour of Malaga, a millenary city where a multitude of cultures, civilizations and religions have coexisted. Discover its main monuments and stories with this Free Tour that will make you fall in love with the capital of the Costa del Sol.

We will start from the Plaza de la Constitución, one of the most popular places in the city and which connects with the most important street in the city, Marqués de Larios. We will continue to the Plaza del Obispo, where we will find the Cathedral of Málaga, known by the people of Málaga as 'La Manquita' because it only has one tower that stands out between its streets. Until 2012, it was the second highest building in Andalusia, only surpassed by the tower of the cathedral of Seville known as 'La Giralda'. A few meters away we find the Buenavista Palace, which houses the Picasso Museum with more than 200 paintings of the promoter of contemporary art.

We will go down to the remains of the first century Roman theatre by the port and at the foot of the hill. The theatre soon fell into disuse and was used for canning fish, so we find spaces that allow us to see pools for the salting industry. The theatre was discovered in 1951 and in 2010 the interpretation centre was built to help you understand the importance of recreational spaces in the ancient Roman civilisation. Nearby we will find the Alcazaba, an Arab fortress palace that was protected behind a wall. The reutilization of Roman materials for its Islamic construction in 1063, and its later Christian use, have made it the perfect combination of cultures.

We finish the tour talking about the Gibralfaro Castle, another old Muslim fortress in the city that was founded with the intention of protecting the Alcazaba. Its name, Gibralfaro, is due to the lighthouse that originally topped its peak. From this point you can access the most spectacular panoramic views of the entire city, including those of the port, where a square building will attract our attention. This is the Pompidou Art Centre, or the La Malagueta bullring.
