Málaga offers a great variety for tourists, as you can enjoy its extensive beaches, its many historical monuments, its diverse museums and a wide variety of leisure activities for all tastes. The historical centre of Málaga is practically all pedestrianised; therefore, you can enjoy a pleasant walk and see all the main sites of interest. But if you prefer, you can also go on a bike or even a Segway.
If you’re thinking about visiting Málaga, here is a list of some must-see places to visit during your stay: Gibralfaro Castle, Alcazaba fortress, Atarazanas market, the Roman theatre, the Cathedral, Picasso Museum, the port, ... .
Definitely take some time to visit our white washed village Almogía. You won't read much about it in tourist guides, but that doesn't mean you won't find the typical Andalusian charm here, quite the contrary. In the narrow streets, on the 'plazas' and terraces you will experience the real Andalucía.
Muche more touristy are the pueblos blancos Mijas (1h), Frigiliana (1h) and Comares (1h). All three worth a visit.
A visit to this historical Andalucían town Antequera is a journey almost 5000 years back in time, beginning with the Bronze Age and the native Iberians. The timeline is there to be followed in this fascinating city's profusion of burial mounds, dolmens, Roman baths, a Moorish Castle, Gothic churches, Renaissance fountains and baroque bell towers.
Ideal to combine with a visit to El Torcal.
Ronda is one of the oldest cities in Spain and is best known for the Puente Nuevo. This bridge over the El Tajo gorge is almoust 100m high and connects the districts Mercadillo and La Cuidad. Because of its unique location Ronda offers you many spectacular views over the surrounding mountains and valleys. Also take your time to visit the Plaza de Toros, one of the oldest en most beautiful bullrings of Spain. Stroll across the cozy squares, go shopping or enjoy breathtaking views during a walk in the gorge.
Granada is the soul of Andalucía at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains. This mystical city was the capital of a Moorish kingdom from the 13th until the 15th centuries. The Nasrid Dynasty reigned with a splendor unlike anywhere in the medieval world. The hilltop fortress of the Alhambra Palace was a paradise of greenery, rose gardens, and endlessly flowing fountains. After flourishing for centuries, Granada became the last bastion of the Moors in Spain when the Catholic Monarchs captured the city in 1491. Although now predominantly Christian, Granada has inherited rich Islamic, Jewish, and Gypsy influences. The Renaissance Catholic cathedral was once a mosque. The Albaicín (old Moorish town) and the Alcaicería (spice market) have an authentic Arabic flavor. Colorful Gypsy culture and fabulous flamenco dancing is found in the caves of the Sacromonte quarter.
One building alone is reason enough to put Córdoba high on your itinerary: the mesmerising multiarched Mezquita, one of the world's greatest Islamic buildings. But today's Córdoba is much more than the Mezquita. Córdoba's real charms unfold as you explore the winding, stone-paved lanes of the medieval city to the west, north and east of the gaudy touristic area immediately around the Mezquita, wandering between wrought-iron balconies and lamps, potted plants, overhanging trees, golden-stone buildings and verdant interior patios, emerging every few minutes on yet another quaint little hidden plaza.
