Day 1 - Málaga

Key Highlights:

Plaza de la Constitución - Malaga’s main square is as relaxing and charming as any, with plenty of space for people to stroll through on the weekend.

Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga  - known by locals as “the one armed lady” (La Manquita) because it isn’t quite finished and one entire tower is left undone.

Alcazaba - the Alcazaba is still said to be Spain’s best preserved citadel ating back to the 11th century, giving you a true sense of Malaga’s Moorish history.

Day 2 - Ronda and Júzcar villages

Key Highlights:

Puente Nuevo - Looking like something straight out of Game of Thrones, the Puente Nuevo spans a narrow chasm that separates two sides of the historic city of Ronda!

Ronda viewpoint - What would a beautiful landscape be without an incredible viewpoint from which to see it?

Jardines de Cuenca - The views at The Cuenca Gardens are fantastic and give you a unique and differing perspective of the city.

Baños Arabes - The Arabic baths in Ronda are the best preserved in Spain.

Júzcar - Smurf-like Village
