MALAGA: SEAFRONT FORTRESS TOWN



Our suggested introduction plan to Malaga city is based on a two-night pernoctation, which allows for one full active day in town with an evening for a relaxed arrival and time after to return or further connect to other cities.


Discover Malaga, capital of the province, and famous for it’s long and sunny coast, “Costa del Sol”. 




Malaga dates back to the Phoenicians, being a seaside port city and key location to many civilizations since. Containing important artefacts of a high Roman Civilization, during the Muslim period in Spain, Malaga would become an important bastion to the Emirs and Caliphs of Al-Andalus, from the Umayyads to the Nasari Dynasties. Malaga still holds a fortress Alcasba and a small palace Alkasr below which are both still optional for visits. Moreover, we may enjoy the seaside and port. Not to mention it ’s province, inhabited by coastal fortress towns and villages that travel from the seafront through the mountains. Malaga’s port was a crucial access towards the naval defence system from the time of the Ummayad and after. The port is also known for its importance in merchandising and communication. Malaga was also a witness to the divisions within the Muslim states, mainly within the Nazari dynasty of Granada, right until The Catholic-Christian alliance took over in 1487, only a few years before Granada itself.




Day 1: Arrival day.

On your first day in Malaga after checking into your hotel, we suggest you take a walk to familiarize with the 'Marina' or port area, where you will find a pleasant walk and views upon the Mediterranean sea as well as the city centre. This will provide you with a first introduction to the city and set the mood for a relaxed, yet lively experience. You will be near enough to walk into the pedestrian area and historical centre, by the Cathedral along to the Roman Amphitheatre, from where you will access the Alkasr and Alkasba the next morning.  These locations are close to the modern centre with its many shops and Halal culinary places to enjoy.




Day 2: Alkasr, Alkasbah & other sites within the city centre.

On your first morning in Malaga, we encourage you to visit the main historical sites, namely the Alkasba and the Alkasr of Malaga, these were the Royal Palaces belonging to the expelled Nashrid oppositional Sultans. You may also walk past the Roman amphitheatre below the Alkasr, before choosing a nearby lunch location. It is advisable to take a rest during the midday heat in Spain, especially in the summertime. The afternoons can be dedicated to exploring the old town centre & shopping areas before dinner in town. Night walks and further options can be provided at the time of your booking.

Our independent tour package will usually include the hop-on-hop-off bus tour of the city so that you can enjoy the main city sites as well as those mentioned in the itinerary unless you have arranged transportation otherwise.
