What are beautiful sights in Malaga?

What are beautiful sights in Malaga?
Malaga is a city with a great atmosphere and hospitality. You will find, in addition to many nice restaurants and bars, many culture, museums and attractions.

Cathedral "La Manquita"
The cathedral is a popular tourist attraction and a national monument in Spain. Without doubt one of the main attractions in Malaga.
The Cathedral of Malaga, also called "la Manquita" (the one armed woman) is worth visiting. The name comes from the fact that for the second tower is never finished.

La Alcazaba, military fort
This Arab fortress was built in the 11th century by King Badis of Granada.
If you want to soak up the history of Malaga should really to the Alcazaba and the Archaeological Museum established therein. The Alcazaba consists of the ruins of an old fortress. Originally the fort was built by the Romans, later it was restored by the Moors. Alcazaba is the Arabic word for fortress.
The view from the fortress of the city is beautiful.
In the Archaeological Museum you can admire a whole collection of Roman sculpture.
Next to the entrance of the Alcabaza are the ruins of a Roman amphitheater.

Roman amphitheater
The Roman amphitheater was built about 200 years after Christ. It was discovered by chance in the second half of the 20th century, during excavation works for the construction of the Casa de la Cultura. Of course, it was decided to complete the project to blow and the amphitheater in its entirety to dig. The amphitheater has a diameter of 31 meters and a height of 19 meters.

Castillo de Gibralfaro
If you have visited the Alcazaba, it is certainly worth the Gibralfaro Castle to visit. Gibralfaro Castle is situated on top of a hill with spectacular views of the city of Malaga. It is above the Alcazaba and is connected by a path on the east side. The Castillo de Gibralfaro (Gibralfaro castle on the hill) was built in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the Alcazaba to defend.

Pablo Picasso Museum and birthplace
The population of Malaga is proud that Pablo Picasso was born in their city. Besides the birthplace of Picasso (Casa Natal de Picasso), there is also the Picasso Museum (Museo Picasso).
The native house stands in the Plaza de la Merced right behind the statue of Picasso. The house has been converted into a small museum where belongings and clothing of the Picasso family to see. Picasso is probably the most famous Malagueño, while less than 10 years of his life lived in Malaga.
It's nice to have the house and the venue where Picasso was raised, but it is a small museum where you can not that much see. For paintings from the initial and final period of Picasso you better visit the Picasso Museum in Malaga.

Plaza de Toros - Bullfighting
The Plaza de Toros, the bullring of Malaga, was built in the years 1874 to 1876 and can accommodate 14,000 people. The arena is located behind the beach of Malagueta in the same district.
It is forbidden to different parts of Spain bullfighting, but in Andalusia is still fighting organized. During the Feria of Malaga, the festival week in August, every day there are fights.
The Plaza de Toros is throughout the year for other events, such as culinary festivals and gigs.
