Málaga city tour

Friday, September 20

Make the iconic Calle Larios, Málaga's main shopping street where the world's leading brands have their stores, your starting point. Next, follow it as far as Plaza de la Constitución, the heart of the city's historical quarter.

From there head west, down Calle Compañía to the Palacio de Villalón (16th century), home of the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga (Málaga's Carmen Thyssen Museum), the first goal of the route. The Museum that opened in March 2011 displays a permanent collection of over 200 works by Spanish artists of the 19th century and mainly focuses on Andalusian painting.

Now head east and take Calle Santa Mara, which leads straight to the Cathedral and the Museo Catedralicio (Cathedral Museum). Although work on the Cathedral began during the Gothic period (16th century) on the old Arab mosque, the building is in the Renaissance style and is still unfinished. The missing south tower has earned the building the popular nickname "La Manquita" (One-Armed). There is a beautiful example of Málaga's baroque architecture opposite the cathedral: Plaza del Obispo and Palacio Episcopal (Bishop's Palace; 1762).

WEEKEND OPTIONS

Caminito del Rey

The Gorge Desfiladero de los Gaitanes is a natural beauty spot, placed in the centre of the province, between the towns of Alora, Antequera and Ardales. This is one of the most beautiful spots of the Malaga Mountains. Between its steep and considerably high walls, the River Guadalhorce flows, after having passed through the reservoirs El Chorro (The Spurt), Guadalhorce, Guadalteba and Gaitanejo.
The Gaitanes Gorge is a canyon, carved by the river Guadalhorce in the territory of Álora, which at some points is only 10 meters wide and 700 meters deep. The nothern access to it is via Guadalhorce reservoirs and the southern is via El Chorro.
The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro, which was meant to make the most of the slope in a hydroelectric power station, was carried out together with a path for maintaining the channel.
This one is known as El Caminito del Rey Path (The Kings’s Little Pathway) because it was first opened by King Alfonso XIII. This path, about 3 kilometers long, has just been refurbished, and it goes along vertical walls and a footbridge over the gorge on the same waterway.
