A central neighbourhood that is an icon of urban art and underground culture in the city of Málaga thanks to a project started by the public.

The district is easy to explore on foot and is very close to Málaga’s main tourist area.
This Arab palace-fortress was built in the 11th century by King Badis of Granada. It is perfectly adapted to the contours of the land, and takes maximum advantage of the elevation of a hill. It is made up of two concentric spaces: the outside part is on the lower level, and the inner part houses the palace.
The cathedral of the Encarnación is one of the town’s most important monuments. The south tower and the main façade are unfinished. It is situated in the historic centre of the town. The building sits where a mosque-Moorish quarter once existed. Work began in the first half of the 16th century, in the Gothic style, ordered by the Catholic Monarchs, and continued in the 17th and 18th centuries. It has its own gardens and a magnificent courtyard.
