SHORE EXCURSION MALAGA: itinerary
We’ll take the bus from port and head to the highest point in Malaga to visit Castillo de Gibralfaro. Nearby is the Alcazaba, an Arabic fortress dating back to the 11th century. After we’ve admired the great view of the city, we’ll visit the ruins of a Roman Theatre which is just next door.
Next up is Malaga Cathedral, one of the most important monuments in Andalusia. This beautiful Renaissance church has the charming nickname ‘La Manquita’, meaning the one armed lady. This comes from the fact that the construction of the second bell tower was never finished.
Our shore excursion in Malaga continues in Plaza de la Merced, where we’ll stop outside the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. Then we’ll follow some of the city’s main streets such as Calle Granada, Calle Marqués de Larios, until arrive at Plaza de la Marina.
From there, we’ll walk along Paseo del Parque, which runs alongside the greenery of Malaga City Park, we’ll reach Plaza de Toros de la Malagueta. From here we can see the city’s 16-sided bullring before meeting the bus to return to port.
