Tour rote

The Cathedral of Málaga

The Cathedral of Málaga is an emblem of the city, famous for the fact that it was never finished and was consequently given the charming nickname “La Manquita” (The Little One-armed Lady). Discover why the Cathedral was never finished!

Calle Marqués de Larios

This is the main street of Málaga and is a popular spot for shopping. The construction of this street is linked to a local delicacy – the sweet wine of Málaga! Come and hear the intriguing and amusing tale regarding the eponymous founder of this street, Marqués de Larios!

Market Ataranzas

This is the main market of Málaga and equally loved by tourists and local people. The building was formally a Muslim shipyard, which gives it its name, since ataranzas means shipyard. The building itself is visually stunning, with this unique marriage of 14th century Moorish architecture with 19th century industrial design, completed with a stained-glass window depicting the city’s main landmarks. Come and taste the freshest produce in the city!

San Juan’s Church

This church was once a mosque and has a peculiar structure due to the tower at its main entrance. Find out why the church has the unusual nickname, Church of the Five Balls!

Flowers’ Square

This square was formally the central hub of the prostitute district – but, instead of neon lights, flowers were used! We will also introduce you to the most iconic flower in Málaga…and maybe even dance some flamenco, if you’re lucky!

Constitution Square

Named after the vote for the Constitution in Spain, this is the one of the most emblematic squares in Málaga. This square hosts many public events and celebrations – come and learn about some of the most iconic fiestas in Spain!

Café Central

This is one of the oldest cafés in Málaga and gave rise to a new system for ordering coffee. Learn how to order your coffee like a true malagueño – the locals will be so impressed!

Alcazabilla Street

We finish the tour with the oldest monuments in the city – the Roman Theatre and the Alcazaba. The Alcazaba, which is the Muslim fortress and palace, is central to the history of Málaga and is the reason for which the Christian reconquest of the city was so difficult. Admire the stunning architecture and follow the tour with a glass of the famous sweet wine in El Pimpi, a restaurant partly-owned by our local celebrity, Antonio Banderas!

I went on the free walking tour with Imma and I had a great time! Imma was really friendly and her style was both humorous and informative; there was certainly a lot of laughter during the tour! I learnt a lot about the history and culture of Malaga (and also Andalusia in general), and I think the different stops on the tour were really well chosen. The tour lasted 1 hour 30 mins and was the perfect way of getting an insight into this fantastic city!mehr

Also: Ask the guide for recommendations for tapas places, bars, museums etc. Their tips were really useful for me during my stay in the city :)mehr
