Andalusian cuisine with the best views in town
Situated on the Gibralfaro hill, with the best views of Malaga as a backdrop and its bay on the horizon, the Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro offers the most romantic setting in the city. The cuisine on offer is based on fish and the richness of fruits and vegetables of the Axarquía, but also bets on the quality of some meats and sweet snacks.
Málaga specialities for sharing
A complement to the traditional restaurant, El Mirador del Mediterráneo is a culinary space in its own right, with a more informal menu with dishes to share representing the various regions of Málaga. Málaga cheeses, mango and avocado salad, beefsteak tomato, Iberian cured meats, Russian salad, porra antequerana, aubergines in tempura with honey, fried Andalusian-style cuttlefish or the popular free-range Iberian pork shoulder.
Type of kitchen
Gazpachuelo malagueño, zoque and ajoblanco malagueño
The best balcony overlooking the Mediterranean
Do not miss the Picasso Museum in Malaga, with more than 200 works by the renowned painter. Other essential visits include the Alcazaba, the fortress palace from the Andalusi period, the Roman Theatre and the Cathedral. Next to the Parador, you can visit Gibralfaro Castle, which served as a temporary residence for Ferdinand the Catholic after the Reconquest. The Cuevas del Tesoro are in the beautiful town of Rincon de la Victoria, just six kilometres from Malaga. Here the sea has carved out a wonderful landscape in the limestone cliffs. Undoubtedly a jewel worth discovering.
