Malaga Bike Tours

If you want to explore the city of Malaga and get some exercise at the same time, Malaga Bike Tours is a great option to choose. Along with a city bike tour that takes you through the narrow winding streets of the historic town, there is also a tapas bike tour which takes you through some of the city's amazing local food stops. You can also opt for the alternative bike tour which is a tour of all the off-the-beaten-path tourist attractions in and around the city. If you would like to explore on your own, you can simply rent a bike from Malaga Bike Tours.

Parque de Málaga

These botanical gardens feature species of plants and trees brought in from all over the world. The mild climate allows them all to flourish on land reclaimed from the sea in 1897. You'll come across squares and monuments dedicated to important figures from Malaga's history including the statue and theatre in honour of Eduardo Ocón. Live performances are put on for free during spring and in summer. On the other side of the avenue there's the old gardener's house (now a Tourist Office) as well as the Bank of Spain, the Palacio de la Aduana (Customs House) and the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall).

Alcazaba of Málaga

An old Arab fortress that dominates the city from its vantage point on the hill above the Malaga Bay, La Alcazaba has now become a symbol of the modern city and an important tourist attraction. Sultan Badis, ruler of the Moorish province of Granada is credited for having it built in the 11th Century. It was declared a national heritage site in 1931 and extensive restoration work began the same year which was completed in 1947 turning back the clock and revealing the fortress's original splendor. Explorations around the site throw light on how even earlier Roman remains were incorporated into the Moorish building work, and there are attractive gardens covered in swathes of blooming bougainvillea and orange trees ripe with scented fruit where visitors can sit and rest.

Castillo de Gibralfaro

The most important and best-preserved remains of the Moorish occupation are joined to the Alcazaba. The Phoenicians are believed to have built a fortress on this craggy hill first, but it was Sultan Yusuf I of Granada who had the Coracha (a walled passageway that connects the Alcazaba and the castle) built in the 14th Century. The structure has been modified many times over the years as part of the city's defenses and stands as a chronicle of Malaga's rich history. Visitors can walk up from the pretty Puerta Oscura gardens to the medieval castle which promises panoramic views of Malaga and its bustling harbor dotted with white boats in the distance. There is an interpretation center on-site as well as a military museum.

Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga

A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture, the Catedral de Málaga is a spectacular landmark that crowns the city's historic quarter. Construction for the church began in the 16th Century, and the ornate interiors largely date from this period while the 18th-century exteriors highlight a Baroque influence. The cathedral's original plan envisaged two bell towers, but due to the vast expenditure, only one was ever completed, leading to the nickname La Manquita, meaning lady with one arm. The church's 15 side chapels are richly adorned with religious art and beautiful paintings while the elaborately bedecked choir stalls can be largely attributed to sculptor Pedro de Mena. The 200-step staircase leads up to the bell tower which commands mesmerizing views across the city. The museum housed within the church is a repository of some of the most beautiful period art.

Jardín Botánico La Concepción

A beautiful, landscaped garden, La Concepción is home to thousands of different plants, a plethora of birds and a wealth of cultural interests. The botanical garden sustains one of Spain's most diverse collections of palm trees and other subtropical species, as well as numerous exotic plants, arranged thematically across 23 hectares (57 acres). At its core lies a spectacular, historic garden of neoclassical design. Expanded over the years by its owners, the historical garden is replete with intriguing elements of landscape design, riddled with streams and babbling fountains in between greenhouses, waterfalls, and bridges. Interwoven seamlessly into the landscape are a number of architectural gems as well, such as the San Telmo aqueduct, La Casa Palacio, and the Loringian Museum. It opened to the public in June 1994 and is a special place that enchants with its myriad charms.
