What we will see?

Plaza de la Constitución

Its name and even the square itself changed a lot lately, becoming pedestrian on 2002. As a curious fact, the fountain is not in the middle of the square. The reason, the huge amount of public events and celebrations, undoubtely the most emblematic square of Málaga.

Calle San Agustín

After the Christian reconquest was called the knights Street. Because of the amount of people from the cavalry that started living there. The name changed to San Agustin afterwards because of a monastery from Agustinian´s order. Among others we are going to find Buenavista´s palace, a building from 16th century that contains the main Picasso museum of Málaga.

Alcazaba

Alcazaba is a muslim fortress which construction ended on 1026 b.c. A military building but a palace too, being the central office of the city muslim government. On 1931, was declared as an historic and artistic monument of real cultural interest by the spanish government followed by several restorations over the 20th century.

Calle Marqués de Larios

Inaugurated on 1891, its modern design, and its location, connecting the city center with the port made Málaga neighbours to fall in love with it. As well as Constitución became pedestrian on 2002. Mainly a shopping área, its one of the most expensive places where to rent a shop in Málaga.

Bodega el Pimpi

At the heart of Málaga, is hard to explain the importance of El Pimpi for our city. An historical building, a winery, a restaurant, a museum, meeting point for malagueños and visitors, a place that gather together culture and gastronomy, tradition and trendiness.

Castillo de Gibralfaro

Even if we won´t climb Gibralfaro hill, we´ll see and talk on our Free tour of the second muslim fortress. A castle that could control and keep an eye on the whole city of Málaga. Because of this location, the castle provides the best views of the city, the harbour, the beach and the northern mountains.

Cathedral of Málaga

Built between 1528 and 1782, a mixure of styles that cover from Gothic architecture to even some neoclassic elements. Also remarkable that the cathedral was never finished, being the lack of its South tower the most significant uncomplete part. Taking the nickname of La Manquita (¨The one arm lady¨).

Teatro romano

Our roman theatre was built on 1st century. Covered by the muslim, stayed underground until 1951, time when Malagueños discovered it. With place for 1.200 people and covered by marble, the theatre was used to do performances, operas but also votings as referéndums of roman´s public life.

Plaza de la Merced

Last but not least our Merced square is a very significant square in our city. Place where probably the most relevant malagueño person was born, Pablo Ruiz Picasso. Next to the painter birthplace we´ll talk about his life and works in our guided visit culmination.
"AS ADVERTISED !!"

"The name of our tour was Perfect Day in Malaga and it lived up to its name. Javier made us feel welcome right away. He surely knows and loves his city.He was not a tour guide that just tossed facts at you. He was engaging encourging questions that made the tour interesting and fun. Always thoughtful asking us if we would like coffee or need a break. The lunch stop was delightful and filling. We did several tours during our visit to Spain and Portugal and I would have to say that this was number 1." Read on Tripadvisor

"The perfect day tour"

"Booked the perfect day tour with my wife last Saturday. It starts at €95 per person but is discounted for larger groups. Our tour lasted over 6 1/2 hours and included all admission charges and lunch. There were just the two of us on the tour, so it was in effect a private tour. Our guide was Javier (one of the founder/ owners). Although my wife lived in Malaga and went to the university and I have visited it several times we both found it very interesting. We learned lots on new things even though we had visited most of the venues at least once before. I would definitely recommend the tour..." Read on Tripadvisor
