Cathedral Visit and Guided Walking Tour

  • English English
  • 2 hours

Explore Malaga's picturesque historic centre on this guided walking tour through its pretty streets and fascinating history including a guided visit of its elaborate - albeit unfinished - Cathedral.

Itinerary

Your walking tour of Malaga's historic centre will start in the heart of the old town, in Calle Alcazabilla, next to the Glass Pyramid. 

After learning some anecdotes and curiosities about the life of the artist, continue your walk through the city of his birth. You'll see the Iglesia de Santiago Apóstol: a church whose history dates back to medieval times, and where Picasso was baptised in 1881.

Next you'll wander down Pasaje de Chinitas, a narrow cross-shaped alleyway leading to Plaza de la Constitución and Calle Larios, the city's main shopping street. This pedestrianised street, with its stunning architecture, is so famous that it plays host to many events throughout the year, including the debuts of new Malaga CF football players. 

You'll finish your tour with a guided visit of Malaga Cathedral. The first thing that will stand out to you is its lopsided façade: the two bell towers are not the same height. Fondly nicknamed 'La Manquita', or 'One-Armed Lady' because of this. The reason the second tower was never finished can be found on the other side of the Atlantic, in the United States...

Inside the basilica, you can admire artistic masterpieces in various styles: from Gothic to Renaissance to Baroque. The cathedral's magnificent high altar and intricate choir stalls stand out amongst the artwork. They're not alone - find out the origins of one particular piece that is said to have been painted on elephant skin!
