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 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.

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 is unfinished, actually was never finished, being the lack of its South tower the most significant uncomplete part. Taking the nickname of La Manquita (the english translation would be something like ¨the one arm lady¨.

Calle San Agustín
San Agustín Street after the Christian reconquest of Málaga 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"Fantastic Private Shore Excursion"

"We booked a private walking tour for myself, husband and daughter for a shore excursion for our cruise stop at Malaga. I was impressed with Explora Malaga from initial contact when I received a very prompt reply from Javier with ideas of what we could do and prices charged.

Javier was waiting for us when we arrived at the cruise shuttle bus stop, and we immediately embarked on our tour which was one of the highlights of our cruise. Javier was full of information about Malaga and we discovered lots of interesting things which we simply would not have known if we would have walked around unaccompanied. Javier was able to answer all of our questions, and was very friendly and easy to talk to.

The tour was great value too. We paid less for a private tour with Javier than what we would have if we would have gone on a group tour with our cruise company. Booking with Explora Malaga also means you're supporting a local business run by local people rather than giving money to the cruise liners who already make enough.

I thoroughly recommend booking a tour with Explora Malaga, you will not be disappointed!" Read on Tripadvisor
