A bit of history you'll discover on your tour to Málaga from Seville
Málaga, a coastal jewel in the Andalusian region, has a rich history reflected in its streets and monuments. Founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC, Málaga has witnessed the influence of various cultures over the centuries.
From Roman presence to the Islamic era, the city has been a strategic enclave and a cultural melting pot. The Alcazaba, an 11th-century Arab fortress, and Gibralfaro Castle bear witness to this military and defensive past.
Málaga Cathedral, built between the 16th and 18th centuries, is an architectural masterpiece combining Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles. Known as “La Manquita” due to its unfinished tower, the cathedral symbolizes the city’s historical richness.

*Here’s a bit of history about optional villages or visits you can add to this tour of Málaga from Seville:
Antequera: A millennia-old city in southern Spain, Antequera treasures a rich history spanning eras and civilizations. Its strategic location has attracted diverse cultures, leaving a remarkable archaeological and cultural legacy.
In prehistoric times, megalithic monuments like the Dolmen de Menga and the Tholos de El Romeral suggest an advanced society in the Copper and Bronze Ages. During Roman occupation, known as “Anticaria,” Antequera flourished as a commercial and agricultural center. Later, in the 8th century, it fell under Muslim rule, marked by the construction of the Alcazaba and mosques.
The Reconquista in 1410 returned it to Christian rule, transforming mosques into churches like San Sebastián. The 16th and 17th centuries saw an architectural renaissance with the Collegiate Church of Santa María and the Convent of San Agustín. In the 20th century, Antequera has grown, preserving its heritage while becoming a tourist and cultural center.
Today, Antequera shines with its archaeological heritage, historic center, and natural charm, captivating those seeking to immerse themselves in the region’s history.
Ronda: Nestled in southern Spain, Ronda weaves a fascinating history unfolding over the centuries, merging cultures and leaving a monumental legacy.
In prehistory, traces like the Cueva de la Pileta indicate an ancient presence. The Roman city of Acinipo attests to its heritage in antiquity. Under Muslim rule, Ronda saw the construction of the Alcazaba and the Puente Nuevo, towering over the Tajo River, witnesses to the splendor of Al-Andalus.
The Reconquista in the 15th century incorporated it into the Christian kingdom. The 18th-century Plaza de Toros highlights Ronda’s connection to bullfighting. The historic center, with cobbled streets and charming squares, evokes bygone eras.
As for the White Villages, these charming enclaves in the Andalusian mountains are adorned with whitewashed houses, remnants of their Moorish origin. Places like Grazalema, Zahara de la Sierra, Setenil de las Bodegas, or Ubrique transport you to times when craftsmanship and traditional architecture were living treasures.
Today, Ronda and the White Villages capture the imagination with their heritage, stunning landscapes, and the magic of enduring times in every corner. Enjoy one of our most acclaimed places to visit!
