Knowledge the past and the present of Malaga with me
Malaga is a beautiful city of great history and culture; cosmopolitan and active. It is seaworthy and tradition.
We will start discovering Malaga with our five senses at the local covered market; colourful stands, inviting smell and possibilities in a tasting. Then, we will walk from Malaga's modern boulevard "Calle Larios" strolling through the old narrow winding streets that lead us to several historic icons in the city: the majestic renaissance style Cathedral, the I century B. C. Roman Theatre and finally the XI century Moorish palatial fortification merging the modern and the old.
As the city of Picasso's birthplace, we can't miss the house and the square that saw him grow while playing happily. Here we can take our picture with him sitting on a bench waiting for us.
Along the various stops, I suggest to sit down in one the many cafes and Bodegas to enjoy a "sweet wine Malaga" and a little "Tapa"!
* For a full day visit, I suggest Malaga and Mijas Private tour. Please ask for a customized tour.
