Enjoy this fantastic guided tour of Malaga, and learn about its fascinating heritage as you visit the Moorish Alcazaba and the Roman Theatre, originally built in the 1st century BC. Plus, you get to skip the lines!
At 10:30 am, you'll begin your guided walking tour of Malaga city centre, leaving from Plaza de la Marina.
Wandering up Calle Alcazabilla, you'll discover the city's Roman legacy as you visit the ancient theatre. Jump forwards in time to the Al-Andalus period, learning about city's Arabic history on a guided tour of the beautiful Alcazaba. This 'mini Alhambra' has been the site of countless conspiracies and plots. Inside, you'll hear more about its incredible history and the legends that surround it.
Your tour will continue to Plaza de la Merced, where you'll find the monument to General Torrijos, who was executed in Malaga alongside his liberal companions in 1831. In the very same plaza, you'll learn all about the life and work of the world's most famous painter from Malaga, as you reach the Birthplace Museum of Pablo Ruiz Picasso.
One unmissable stop if you're in Malaga is the Calle Larios shopping street, leading to Plaza de la Constitución. Hear about the mysterious histories of the buildings that line the square, including the creepy former prison. You'll then head onwards to the Malaga Cathedral where you'll find out how it got the name 'La Manquita', or the 'One-Armed Lady'.
The tour will end around 2pm.
