Area information
The Cathedral of Málaga (0.2 km) – The cathedral is the city’s architectural jewel. Built in the Greco-Roman style on the site of an ancient Moorish mosque, the cathedral was begun in 1528 and completed in 1719. The original plans for the cathedral included two towers, but lack of funds resulted in the completion of only one. The cathedral is sometimes affectionately referred to as La Manquita which loosely translated means one-armed woman.

Museo Picasso Málaga (0.4 km) - The museum was established in response to Pablo Picasso’s own desire for his work to be seen in the city of his birth. The museum was established thanks to the combined efforts of the autonomous Government of Andalusia and Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, whose donations form the museum’s collection. Picasso was born in Málaga on 25 October 1881 and his styles and techniques would go on to change the course of modern art.

Alcazaba (fortress) (0.6 km) – Although its architecture is completely different, the fortress is comparable in importance with that of Almeria. Like the castle of Gibralfaro, the Alcazaba of Malaga has one double row of walls. The fortress was mostly constructed in the 11th century and it was the fortified palace of the city’s Muslim governors.

Castle of Gibralfaro (3.7 km) – The Castle is situated above the Alcazaba and is connected by a path at the eastern end of the Alcazaba. It was built in the 14th and 15th centuries by the Muslim King Yusuf, on the site of a Phoenician lighthouse known as Yabal-Faruk. The castle was constructed as a fortress to defend the Alcazaba against the spread of artillery use. The fortification includes the defensive devices of a large flanking tower, a rampart perimeter adapted to the terrain by zigzagging walls and an angled gateway.

The restaurant is situated on the second floor of the hotel and offers unbeatable views of the Paseo del Parque. The menu is based on traditional regional specialities and also features a sprinkling of international haute cuisine dishes.

The buffet style breakfast offers local and Mediterranean products, and is served from 07:00 to 11:00 during the week and from 08:00 until 12:00 at weekends.
