Gibralfaro Castle and the nearby Roman Theatre and Alcazaba are probably the top three attractions here, and from this elevated spot you can get great views across the city during your trip to Malaga. Enjoy the fountains, gardens and a stroll around the battlements. The Picasso Museum is home to many pieces by Malaga’s most famous son, and the city’s cathedral, the Manquita, is also worth a visit.
"The Conception Botanical Garden is good for a stroll and the Thyssen Museum houses a grand collection of Spanish 19th century paintings."Atarazanas Market is the central market of Malaga and dates back to the 14th century. It was built by the Moors as a dry dockyard for ship construction and now sells everything you can think of, from fruit and vegetables to oil, olives and fish.
For the best view of Malaga, go up to the top of the Parador de Malaga Gibralfaro and enjoy a drink and snack on the terrace of the Parador Hotel whilst watching the sun set over the ancient city. It’s an easier alternative to climbing up Gibralfaro Castle.
