In this post we are going to tell you what to visit and how you can move by motorcycle through Malaga. Malaga has many pedestrian areas, especially its historic center, but one of the best ways to get around it is by motorcycle, since you avoid a lot of traffic and have easy parking.
So put on your helmet and enjoy riding a motorcycle through a city with more than 3,000 years of history. We provide you with the motorcycle and all the accessories you need.
Tour of the center of Malaga
You can start by taking a walk on Muelle Uno in the Port of Malaga; have a drink, go shopping, see the boats, take a boat trip, visit the Alborania – Aula del Mar museum, and the jewel in the crown of the port that is the Pompidou Museum (admission is free every Sunday from 4:00 p.m.) As you can see, in the port you have a lot of things to do.
Then take the motorcycle to the Cathedral also called “the Manquita” because it never finished building its south tower, located in front of the Plaza del Obispo, is one of the most valuable Renaissance jewels of Andalusia (in Av. De Cervantes there is a motorcycle parking). Take a walk through the Cathedral area, enter its alleys and enjoy Malaga’s cuisine.
Arrive at the Plaza de la Merced, observe it from all perspectives of the neoclassical obelisk that stands in the middle of the space in homage to General Torrijos. You also have the Birthplace of Picasso, whose foundation has been promoting numerous and varied works since the late 1990s to make the painter known beyond the house that saw him born.
Go down Alcazabilla Street and enjoy the atmosphere of the city and see the wonderful Roman Amphitheater, built by César Augusto in the ancient Roman city of Malacca and was discovered in 1951 during the construction of the Palace of Archives and Libraries (Casa de la Culture). The amphitheater can be visited free of charge during opening hours.
Go back to your motorcycle and go to Calle Carreterías, at the end of the street you can park easily. Stroll through the area, there are many typical coffee shops, very nice teapots and genuine shops in the city. He arrives at the Plaza de Uncibay that receives its name from the Biscayan captain Fernando de Uncibay, who led the conquest of Malaga at the orders of the Catholic Monarchs. Follow the path through the Plaza de la Constitución to the famous Calle Larios, built in the 9th century by the family of the same name and nowadays the fifth most expensive shopping street in Spain. In the Constitution Square look for Company Street where you can visit the Carmen Thyssen Museum. And numerous beautiful churches in the center of Malaga, such as the church of San Juan Bautista.
Get on your motorcycle again and return to the Cathedral area. You cannot miss the visit to the Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibralfaro, palatial fortification of the Muslim era on the slopes of Mount Gibralfaro and we are seduced by the history and beautiful views of the bay of Malaga. You can see a beautiful sunset from its walls. At the foot of the Alcazaba is the wonderful Paseo del Parque, which houses the City Hall inside, and which in itself constitutes one of the most important parks in Europe in terms of species of tropical flora.
As you can see, there are a lot of things to see and do in Malaga. Take your time and become your routine. If you have several days enjoy the city, the atmosphere, the cuisine, the beaches, its culture. If you only have one day for a quick visit, choose your itinerary according to your interests.
