About Guided tour Cathedral and historic center Intro

Although Malaga tourism has always been more related to the sun, the beach and gastronomy, in recent years the city has reinvented itself, achieving a growing interest in cultural tourism.

Itinerary Itinerary

The tour with our guide will start at Calle Alcazabilla, so we will walk near the archaeological complex formed by the Alcazaba and the Roman Theater, two of the most important monuments of the city that you can discover on guided tours with Buendía Tours.

If we continue walking along Alcazabilla Street, we will reach the famous Plaza de la Merced. Also known as Market Square because in the 15th century the public market was located here. For the bourgeois of the late nineteenth century, La Merced was a place for leisure and fun. At present, in the center of the square there is an obelisk in honor of General Torrijos and also here is the Museo Picasso Malaga.

During our visit to the art gallery, we will be able to learn more about the life and trajectory of Pablo Picasso. The Museum preserves more than a hundred paintings by the artist so we can enjoy a journey through the work and creativity of Picasso for more than eight decades.

The next stop on our guided tour of the Cathedral and the historic center of Malaga is the Plaza de la Constitución, a leisure area for young people at any time of the year. Although if you visit the city at Easter or, in August, coinciding with the Malaga Fair, the square will be overflowing with people enjoying the celebration.

We continue walking to Calle Larios, one of the most famous streets in the city and where we find all kinds of shops, from fashion or perfume shops to an ice cream parlor. There are also some benches where you can rest for a few minutes while watching the coming and going of tourists and locals.

And finally... it's time to visit the most precious jewel of this tour: the Cathedral of Malaga! The Cathedral has its origins in 1487, with the conquest of the city by the Catholic Monarchs. After this victory, the Great Mosque became a Christian Cathedral, in the Gothic style. One of the details that the guide will explain during the visit is that the North Tower measures 87 meters, which makes it the tallest cathedral in Andalusia.
