    Stop At: Malaga Cathedral, Calle Molina Lario 9, 29015 Malaga Spain

    Málaga Cathedral, one of the city’s key architectural attractions, is known locally as ‘La Manquita’, or ‘The One-Armed Woman’, due to its uncompleted second tower. Built between 1528 and 1782 near to the site of an early Almohad mosque, original plans for this huge Renaissance and Baroque-style cathedral had included two towers, but the second was never built because of a lack of funds. Construction dragged on for over two hundred years before the Mayor of Málaga commissioned Aragonese architect José Martín de Aldehuela (1729–1802) to finish the cathedral off in the late 18th century. Aldehuela’s other iconic contributions to the province include Ronda’s stunning ‘New Bridge’ and bullring.

The church was constructed combining Gothic and Mujedar architectural styles with Moorish arches and pillars. A tower was completed in 1543.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Plaza y Acera de La Marina, Plaza Marina s/n, 29015 Malaga Spain

    Plaza y Acera de La Marina is surrounded by many elegant buildings; though these are modern ones, they just blend in with the historical center's monumental character quite well. The square was projected in the mid-nineteenth century, when a section of the Moorish walls was removed, thus giving the green light to start working on the square. Today, one will find the spot quite modern, due to various renovations, but the fountain and the palm trees surrounding it will provide one with an unforgettable atmosphere. In the Plaza there is also the statue of cenachero or zenachero. The cenachero is a popular symbol of the city of Malaga. In 1968, the Malaga-born artist Jaime Fernández Pimentel immortalized in this very statue the picturesque character inspired by a real fisherman named Manolo "El Petaca". Under the sculpture, there is a memorial plaque containing verses dedicated to the figure of cenachero by poet Salvador Rueda.
