  • It is a monument without grace, which is dwarfed in the center of the huge plaza de la Merced. For those who do not know what happened in Malaga in 1831, the vast majority of those who see them, is a monument to the memory of some martyrs of 1831 whose names appear on the four sides of the base of the obelisk, who died for freedom and against tyranny. There is no plaque explaining his struggle, his feat and the reason for his "martyrdom", which almost could rename as "monument to heroes named but unknown". A to-do of the Town Hall.

  • One of the beautiful monuments situated on attractive square with many restaurants and terraces. When staying in Malaga you'll definitely drop by here.

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
