Welcome to Málaga Province


Each region of the province has equally fascinating diversity, from the mythical mountains of La Axarquía to the tourist-driven razzle-dazzle of the Costa del Sol. Inland are the pueblos blancos (white towns), crowned by spectacularly situated Ronda. There's also the under-appreciated, elegant old town of Antequera, with its nearby archaeological site and fabulous porra antequera (thick local soup).

Malaga Segway Tour

Meet your friendly guide and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll follow your guide into the buzzing historical heart of the city. Glide through Constitution Square (Plaza Mayor), passing its bustling sidewalk cafes where Malagueños spill out onto the pavements. Hear of the square’s 15th-century history, and then continue to pedestrianized Larios Street where the city’s swanky shops are found. Pose for photos in front of Larios Monument -- an ornate 19th-century statue of Manuel Domingo Larios (the man who spearheaded Malaga’s urban development).See Museo Picasso with its pretty whitewashed façade, and then Picasso’s birthplace, while hearing tales and trivia about the man himself. Malaga oozes with arty history, and your guide will point out other notable highlights like Carmen Thyseen Museum, a gallery that showcases modern Spanish art inside Villalón Palace – a magnificent 16th-century building.Pass the famously lopsided-looking Malaga Cathedral, and then work your way through the side streets to hit Malaga Alcazaba – the city’s most important Moorish landmark. Considered one of the best-preserved Arab citadels in Spain, this palatial fortress was built on the grounds of a Roman town overlooking the city center. Soak up the views and see the recently excavated Roman amphitheater, just next to it.If you’re eager to see more and stay out on your Segway for longer, then upgrade to the 2-hour tour! After a short break, you’ll continue to Castillo de Gibralfaro to marvel at its castle ramparts and enjoy the finest views in the city! Glide back down into town and saunter along Malaga Promenade (Palmeral de las Sorpressas), admiring its neat little gardens that separate the town from the seafront. Both the 1-hour tour and 2-tour finish at the start point.
