To get your bearings in a new place or just to get a feel for a city’s beautiy, it’s best to find a good spot to see the city from above. Tall skyscrapers, mountain tops, observation decks, and, ferris wheels. On my visit to Malaga I went up the Noria Mirador Princess ferris wheel to see beautiful Malaga from above. It’s well located between the pier and the main street of the old center, with no tall buildings anywhere to be seen, giving you panoramic views of Malaga in every direction. A somewhat over-commercialized and overpriced (~10 euros), but my cravings for views needed fulfillment.

 

Shall we go up?

There are also panoramic views from the castle-fortress, but that’s a bit further away from the center and next to the bull ring. If you don’t mind overpriced tourist attractions, the views from above on a clear day are quite grand.
