Essential Accessible Malaga Guided Walking Tour
This 3-hour Essential Accessible Malaga Guided Walking Tour gives you a perfect overview of the charming Spanish city without having to worry about accessibility barriers. Escorted by your private tour guide, you will experience some of the most popular sights in the city center, including Plaza de la Constitución, the Cathedral of Malaga, the Roman Amphitheater, and many more.
This accessible Malaga walking/rolling tour begins with your friendly local tour guide meeting you at your centrally located Malaga hotel (note, if you’re arriving at the cruise dock, we can add accessible transfers to and from the port and city center at an additional cost). From here, you will head out on a leisurely stroll along the charming streets of the Spanish Costa del Sol city.
Your first stop of the day will be Plaza de la Constitución, the main square of the city. The Plaza holds significance in both the city’s past and present and has served as a public space since the 15th century. Today, the Plaza is home to beautiful, well-preserved Spanish architecture, the beautiful Fuente de Genova fountain, charming cafes and small shops and a large pedestrianized area dedicated to the history of the city.
Next, your tour guide will lead you through the pedestrianized, main shopping street in Malaga, Calle Marques de Larios, to the glorious Malaga Cathedral. This impressive Renaissance and Baroque-style Cathedral was built between 1528 and 1782, and due to lack of funds, only one of the planned two towers were completed. This is why it’s also called “La Manquita,” or “the one-armed woman”.While here, you will have an opportunity to enter the Cathedral to admire the beautiful interior work including the exquisite choir stalls with extravagant carvings and the two rare and beautiful organs with more than 4,000 pipes!
After your visit to the Cathedral, you will continue along Calle San Agustin to the ancient Roman amphitheater. The Theater was built in the age of Augustus and was in use until the third century. Today it stands as an impressive ruin site and a modern visitor center displaying stories and artifacts from everyday Roman life is now connected to it. Escorted by your tour guide, you will see the parts of the ruin site that are accessible and learn about the fascinating history of the place.
The final part of your accessible walking tour will be spent admiring some of the most popular sights of the city, including Gibralfaro Castle and Plaza de Merced. The Plaza is one of the most beautiful squares in the city, and it is dominated by its large Torrijos monument, a large obelisk, in the very center. This Square was also the place where the famous Picasso was born.
