The Cathedral : The Cathedral in Malaga Spain at the Plaza de la Cathedral is probably the most prominent building of the city. This Cathedral was built by replacing the Malaga Mosque by Pedro Lopez and Diego Siloe . However the construction was left incomplete due to monetary reasons. The Southern Tower of the Cathedral still stands incomplete and is therefore called ' la manquita' which means missing.
The Market Area : To the West of the Cathedral lies the old part of the city. This is the market area of Malaga Spain. The market Hall is adorned with an impressive marble entrance door. The market displays some of the items that the city has to offer, from tons of fish to beautiful flowers.
Picasso Museum: Pablo Picasso is the son of this artistic city and his birth house is still there at Plaza de la Merced 15 . The Picasso Museum at the Palacio de Buenavista at Calle San Augustin is a major tourist destination.
The Alcazaba: The Gibralfaro(Fort) is situated on a ridge and it looks down on the City and at the bottom of the same ridge is the Muslim palace of Alcazaba. It was completed in the 14 th Century by the Nasrides. However, the ruins of these fortresses house the two museums of Archeology and Museo de la Ceramica . The latter mostly display pottery.
