After an inspiring and informative weekend conferencing, we feel you might want to enjoy the pleasures that Málaga has to offer. Just remember that the weather at that time of the year will be ideal, with sunshine, possibly a gentle breeze and temperatures of around 18 to 20 degrees Celsius.

With this in mind, we start this collection of blogs with the first alternative route to discover the city, part of the project “Discover Málaga“. Enjoy the most authentic Malaga!

Malagueta, looking at the Mediterranean

This first route starts with a visit to the port and the beautiful summer houses built on the seafront by Malaga’s high society in late 19th and 20th century. An area with first-class shops, high quality restaurants and some important landmarks. The route has ten stops, and here are some of the highlights:

The Pompidou Centre. In it’s unique location, in the new port, the cube of coloured crystal has become an icon of the city. If you are an art lover, you will enjoy discovering the least-known collections of the Pompidou museum.

La Farola. A lighthouse still in use from its start in 1816, emblematic and part of the skyline.

Avenida Pries and Paseo de Reding. Enjoy this majestic neighbourhood, going for a stroll in the tree-lined boulevards and discover the beautiful architecture of the city.

And if by then you are starting to feel hungry, walk towards the Palmeral de las Sorpresas, the commercial dock that brings the city to the sea and is always buzzing with atmosphere. There you will be able to taste the delicious typical cuisine that Málaga has to offer.

Are you ready for this first route? Here are all the details, along with a map.
