Malaga Photo Gallery - Part 5 (City Scenes)

After exploring the hillside fortresses and bustling local market, Malaga had a few more beautiful churches and other attractions in its compact historic centre to explore.

Paseo del Parque is a leafy boulevard with grand buildings edged between the Alcazaba and the waterfront park. The Ayuntamiento was built in the 1910s with plenty of sculptures.

The Teatro Romano was built during Augustus' reign taking advantage of the sloping geography. During the 5th and 6th centuries, it became a cemetery and then the stones were recycled for the Alcazaba next door. It was rediscovered in 1951 during the Casa de Cultura's construction.

The Jesuit Iglesia del Sagrado Corazon was built at the end of the 19th century using Toledo's cathedral as a model.

Iglesia de Santiago dates from the late 15th and 16th centuries and renovated in the 18th.

Iglesia de Los Martires was built in the 16th century in the Gothic-Mudejar style to dedicate 2 local martyrs. It was renovated in the 18th century in rococo style.

The Sociedad Economica de Amigos del Pais was built in 1785 and was first used by the Maritime Consul but subsequently changed to a Jesuit school. Since 1961, it has been the headquarters of the Economic Society.

The Palacio Episcopal was built in the 18th century with a Baroque facade facing the square.

A dried-out river runs through Malaga towards the Mediterranean Sea.
