Three of Málaga’s finest attractions in the old town—the Roman theater, Alcazaba and cathedral—can be visited on a leisurely foot tour. Built under the Roman Emperor Augustus, the theater is the finest of the many Roman ruins in southern Spain. Many of its stones were used by the Moors in the 11th century to build their imposing Alcazaba fortress. The cathedral’s Baroque exterior is magnificent, while its interior is filled with stunning sculptures and paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
