Malaga city was called in its origins Malaca which means "princess among the rest of this coast," according to historian Martin de Roa. It has an area of 398 km2 located in the centre of a bay surrounded by mountains. If you are thinking of renting a motorbike you can imagine the beauty of the landscapes that you'll find. Get on the two wheels to Gibralfaro viewpoint and you will find the best panoramic view of the city. Visit the Alcazaba, a palatial fortress reflecting the historical periods of Malaga, from its Phoenician foundation through the Muslim period, and the reconquest until the nineteenth century abandonment and subsequent recovery as a historical monument.
From here to the Cathedral, which like all port cities is facing the sea and is located in the historic centre, you will arrive in a moment with your rental motorbike. You are next to the colourful squares in the centre with its shopping streets: Plaza del Carbón, Plaza de la Constitution. You'll also find in the cultural area: Thyssen Museum, Arab Baths, Roman Theatre, etc ... Not far away, in the Plaza de la Merced you can visit the Picasso Foundation and in 4 kilometres the birthplace of the great artist. And that is that Malaga is a city of art, back facing the sea, the Centre Pompidou coloured cube stands near the inspiring Palmeral de las Sorpresas in the Paseo del Muelle.
Malaga is also a city of cinema. The film festival that bears the name of the city is one of the highlights of the seventh art. Every year for a few days theatres, museums, parks, streets and squares become the stage where the stars and promises of national and international cinema walk around.
