The viewpoint is located by the Gibralfaro Castle, a fourteenth century fortress built to defend the Alcazaba. Don't forget to stop at the Hotel Parador Malaga Gibralfaro, an outstanding hotel with an exquisite restaurant and terrace, from which you can enjoy magnificent sunsets overlooking the sea.
Frigiliana for the romantic and the adventurous
Frigiliana is considered to be one of the most beautiful white villages in the whole of Malaga. Located in the Axarquia, characterised by its Moorish architecture, its beautiful and narrow streets are perfectly preserved, forming an urban framework of little whitewashed houses decorated with flowers.
Frigiliana is in the heart of the Almijara, Tejeda and Alhama Natural Park, making it an exceptional natural environment, ideal for those seeking outdoors adventures where you can enjoy a variety of sports, from hiking and horse-riding to caving.
The Puente Nuevo in the Tajo de Ronda
It is no exaggeration to say that Ronda is one of the most romantic places in the world, and there is no easier way to prove this than by starting your visit at the Puente Nuevo (new bridge) over the Tajo de Ronda river, the most iconic landscape of the city. It is located in the heart of the city and its height goes up to a staggering 100 meters.
To marvel at all of its beauty, the best option is to gaze upon it at the Plaza de España viewpoint or the Ernest Hemingway street, situated in the new part of Ronda, just at the entrance of the city.
