Thrill seekers looking for something a bit more exhilarating during their visit to Malaga will be delighted at the rock climbing opportunities available. Situated beside El Chorro gorge, this fantastic venue provides an opportunity to admire the natural environment in a fun and exciting way. The climb also features a section known as the ‘Kings Walkway’, where visitors can traverse an amazing suspended pathway above the gorge.
Visit the Alcazaba
Unknown to some, Malaga was once ruled by the Moorish empire and the influence still remains in certain areas throughout Spain. The Alcazaba is an 11th century castle and fort which was built upon a hill in the middle of the city. Upon entering the ramparts, you will be treated to fabulous views over the city, as well as the opportunity to access an authentic Moorish Palace which holds a number of interesting artefacts from excavations in the area.
Learn about Picasso
Born in Malaga in 1881, Picasso’s use of colour and creativity continues to influence the world of art to this day. A visit to Malaga is, for any art fanatic, incomplete without visiting the many relics of Picasso that are present throughout the city. You can visit his birthplace and admire some of the paintings created by Picasso throughout his childhood. Alternatively, you can head to the Picasso Museum and enjoy a general overview of the artist’s life and work.
