Take a day to visit Malaga city and you will not be disappointed. Admittedly, if you arrive by air to Málaga airport you could well be discouraged as, like most large cities, the shell is drab and industrial. I made that mistake and avoided a visit for a long time!
Don't miss it! Visit Malaga and you will soon appreciate how this fantastic city is a world apart from the adjoining Costa del Sol. Today it is a briskly modern yet historic city and it still enjoys all of the atmosphere and charm of a Mediterranean port. The kernel, the historic city centre, is a world apart with its majestic, if peculiar, unfinished Gothic cathedral, surrounded by traditional balconied buildings, narrow pedestrian streets and some of the best tapas bars in the province.
In recent years, the city has invested heavily in its culture and heritage with new museums, which now number over 30 in total, extensive restoration and a brand-new port development.
For those that enjoy a visit to the museum here are a few examples of the 30 plus available.
Just to name a few!
Malaga really is a wonderful city to stroll around with its fantastic atmosphere and tapas bar culture. Venture in to the small narrow streets to find shops that have been around for years and bars that take you back to another era. Every time we visit Malaga ourselves we find something we have not seen before be it a building, a square or fabulous tapas bar. Add to that a skyline that reflects the city’s eclectic character; church spires jostle for space with russet-red tiled roofs and lofty apartment buildings while, like a grand old dame, the 11th-century Gibralfaro castle sits grandly and provides the best view of all.
A guided tour of Malaga is a great way to see the sights of this fantastic city and learn a little more about its history. One option is to take an open top bus tour or take a private tour on foot. For something a that can add some real fun to the day is to take the tour on a Segway! I had the opportunity to take this tour last year and it was excellent! See Malaga with any of these tours and you'll not be disappointed.
