A stroll through history

Leave the hotel, wander through the streets, and stroll among incredible historical monuments that you will always remember.

Strolling through Malaga, you will feel the energy and joy of its people enlivening and making the streets their own. And in that stimulating and intense walk, you will also encounter authentic architectural treasures from different eras and civilizations that ennoble the landscape. You don't have to go very far, in fact, from many of the rooms and from the Terrace of Hotel Molina Lario, you can almost touch the cathedral: a Renaissance-Baroque jewel with Gothic aspirations built on top of a mosque, in different stages (from 1525 to 1782). They call it 'La Manquita' because one of its towers was left unfinished.

Get lost intentionally in the alleys of the historic center; surely, sooner rather than later, you will come across the Roman Theater, a set of archaeological remains that remained buried for centuries. They were discovered in 1951, and although excavations continue, you can walk through its stands and enter the Interpretation Center. And if you're lucky enough to have a show scheduled during your stay in the city, get some tickets!

A little further up, on the slopes of Mount Gibralfaro, is the Alcazaba, a fortified Muslim citadel from the 11th century, with magnificent rooms and gardens. It is considered the little sister of the Alhambra in Granada, so yes, it is definitely worth visiting. From the Alcazaba, you can take a dirt path along the hillside to the Gibralfaro Castle, where you'll find spectacular panoramic views. You'll have a good view of the city and part of the Costa del Sol from there.

We also recommend walking along the Paseo del Parque (or Alameda Park), amidst lovely gardens with lush botanical species from around the world and magical corners that you won't want to miss.
