Itinerary

This free tour of Malaga has two different routes, depending on the time you choose.

Free morning walking tour

Setting off from Plaza de la Marina, your tour will start with a stroll through the main streets of the Andalusian city. Here you'll see one of its most iconic symbols, the bronze statue dedicated to the 'cenachero', the fishermen who would at one time hawk their wares in the city streets.

You'll continue your wander up the pedestrianised Calle Larios, one of the Costa del Sol's most famous shopping streets. After reaching Plaza de la Constitución, your next stop will be Plaza del Obispo, where you'll get to see Malaga Cathedral up close and discover why it's popularly known as 'La Manquita', or the 'One-Armed Lady'. From here, you'll head to Plaza de la Merced to see the Picasso Birthplace Museum.

The tour will then make its way down Calle Alcazabilla, where you can admire the ancient remains of Malaga's Roman Theatre, before you finish your tour by the Alcazaba. This Moorish palace-fortress, alongside the Almería Alcazaba and the Granada Alhambra, is an important part of the legacy of Al-Andalus

Meeting time and place

This free walking tour leaves at 11:30am daily from Plaza de la Marina, next to the tourist information point.

Free afternoon walking tour

Departing from the central Plaza de la Constitución, you'll enjoy a pleasant stroll through the city as the setting sun illuminates Malaga's most symbolic sights

Wandering along the coastline, you'll get to see iconic monuments such as the Pompidou Museum's giant colourful cube and the Farola del Puerto, the port's 200 year old lighthouse. Hearing all about the history of the old La Malagueta neighbourhood, you'll make your way to the Ayuntamiento de Málaga, the city's government building, and its stunning gardens. The Jardines de Pedro Luis Alonso are a superb example of formal Mediterranean gardens, and they're home to southern Spain's most complete rose garden, with over 75 varieties of the flower.
