Nature of Málaga

The Parador de Turismo Malaga-Gibralfaro, offers wonderful views of the city.

The Malaga's city park, it is one of the few exterior botanical places in the European continent that maintains species totally acclimated from tropical and subtropical regions. Created in the 19th century. Nearby you can find the City Hall building constructed by the local architect Fernando Guerrero Strachan, it was built between 1912 &1919. It is very pleasant to stroll around this park as you make your way to downtown Malaga from the sea front, the trees and the almost hidden spots that surround you, add to the charm of this walk.
