A wonderful introduction to the charms of Malaga, this highly informative excursion presents the architectural highlights with brief stops for photos.

Depart from the pier and begin driving through Malaga, an exuberant city on Spain's sun-blessed Costa del Sol. Settled nearly 3,000 years ago, Malaga bears the architectural influence of numerous conquerors, including the Romans and the Moors. Driving about the leafy streets, you will notice that even the municipal buildings are extraordinary, especially Malaga's neo-Baroque city hall, which rises majestically above its surrounding gardens.

Still, the most prominent structure is Gibralfaro Castle, a 10th-century fortress so revered that its image appears on the seal and flag of Malaga Province. The castle's name derives from the fact that it was constructed on the remains of a lighthouse, as Gibralfaro means "rock of the lighthouse." It was here in the summer of 1487 that the forces of Ferdinand and Isabella laid siege to Malaga, eventually establishing it as Christian. A brief stop at the castle's Belvedere viewpoint affords you a sweeping perspective of the city.

The Cathedral of Malaga is another architectural highlight. Its construction began in 1528 and continued sporadically over the next 250 years. Nevertheless, the second tower in the original plans was never built, and today the stone cathedral is known affectionately as "La Manquita," the one-armed lady. After visiting, you will have free time in Malaga for shopping or simply to savor the city's ambiance before returning to the pier.

Please note: This tour is primarily panoramic in nature with very limited optional walking at the stops and during free time. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
