Experience the charm of Malaga on a narrated drive that offers photo opportunities, and historic sites. You'll see El Castillo de Gibralfaro, an old Moorish fortress with stunning views of the city and the Mediterranean. Along the way, you'll snap a photo or two of La Malagueta, Malaga's bullring that seats over 15,000 aficionados. A short walk takes you to the Plaza de la Merced, where you'll take a short stroll to the Roman theater and Picasso's Birth House. Next, you'll visit the Alcazaba, with several impressive Moorish gates in the main buildings, and charming gardens and patios. After a short drive, you'll arrive at the Malaga Cathedral. Built between the 16th and 18th centuries on the site of a mosque, it boasts a unique blend of styles, featuring a Baroque facade, a Gothic floor, a superb Renaissance altar and magnificent Baroque choir stalls.
