Few cities are, like Valencia, able to combine so harmoniously remains from remote periods, as far away as 138 B.C., with the most modern, avant-garde buildings to be erected in the new millennium.

The Cathedral of Valencia stands in the same place where the first temple of the Roman city was erected, and later, an Arab mosque. Built between 1262 and 1426, the many expansions and alterations it has gone through have left their mark in the interesting juxtaposition of styles laid over the prevailing primitive Gothic.

The González Martí ceramic museum is housed in a building that dates from the last decade of the 15th century and was refurbished in 1740 by order of the Marqués de Dos Aguas. It was at this time that the magnificent alabaster entrance was constructed; the Virgin overlooks the door below which is flanked by two streams of water and vegetation that symbolise the two rivers (Dos Aguas) and their life-giving properties. The entrance is the work of José Vergara, Hipólito Rovira, Ignacio Vergara and Luis Domingo; it made the building famous for its unusual beauty.
 
Yet beyond all doubt, the most remarkable building is the Lonja de la Seda (the Silk Exchange), an elegant Gothic structure built towards the end of the 15th century that has been declared World Heritage Site. This ancient trading place holds authentic treasures in its interior, such as the monumental Salón de las Columnas, the Torreón Central and the Sala de Juntas del Consulado del Mar.

The Central Market in Valencia covers more than 8,000 square metres, over two floors, with a predominantly eclectic pre-Modernist style. Its unusual roof comprises original domes and sloping sections at different heights, while the interior seems to be lined in a range of materials such as iron, wood, ceramics and polychromed tiles. The beauty of the building stands out especially on account of the light that enters through the roof at various points, and through coloured window panels.

The present city of Palma was coveted, since times immemorial, by Romans, Arabs and Berber pirates. It was Catalan monarch Jaume I who put an end to Muslim rule in this Mediterranean island in the 13th century and the ruler responsible for the most important buildings in Palma.

Behind the eighteenth-century walls that kept pirates and privateers away, the historic quarter is concealed, within a bay that shares its name with the city. Old churches, palaces and stately mansions speak of a prosperous past.
The cathedral of Palma (Sa Seu) enjoys a spectacular location, on the shore of the bay and fishing port. This elegant Gothic temple is quite harmonious, in spite of its huge size. The cathedral, with its very high vaults, was ordered by King Jaume I, who had it built on top of the old mosque of the Medina of Mayurqa. However, the features that attracts the most attention are a great rose window and a unique wrought iron baldachin, by Catalan master Antonio Gaudí.

Across from Sa Seu is the Palace of L'Almudaina. A former Arab palace and later residence of the Majorcan monarchs, the building is presently a museum. The fact that it resembles an Arab fortress contrasts with the ornate flamboyant Gothic Chapel of Santa Ana, located inside.

Sa Llotja (the fish market) is located in the nearby Passeig Sagrera. This ancient exchange, which is presently an exhibition hall, is one of the best examples of civil Gothic architecture in Spain. Its spiral columns and orgive vaults do not cease to surprise, for a non-religious building. Next to the Exchange is the Consolat de Mar (The Sea Consulate), whose Renaissance arches house the Autonomous Government.

Our journey can continue through Passeig des Born. It is one of the main arteries of the city, dividing the monumental historic quarter from the fishing, popular districts of Sant Joan and Puig de Sant Pere.
Further down you will find Plaça Major, a square with great modernist influence. From this point on, the great avenues and boulevards that make up the new suburbs of Palma de Majorca unfold: the modern city.

Another way is to walk through the old Jewish quarter and the district of Sa Calatrava. Along this journey you will see the Gothic temple of Sant Francesc and, at the heart of "Call" (the Jewish quarter).

Two kilometers away from Palma's city center is the Castle of Bellver. The castle is located on top of the wooded hill that dominates the bay. Its unusual, circular floor plan and the delicate arches inside lend it an ornamental, rather that defensive, appearance. The precinct is the current home of the Municipal Museum of History.

Inhabited for more than 2,000 years by different Mediterranean civilizations, Málaga is today a city which combines tradition and modernity. Stretching below the watchful eye of the Castle of Gibralfaro is a lively and bustling city crammed with beautiful corners, such as the Alameda Principal, the gardens of Puerta Oscura and Pedro Luis Alonso, the Park, and the beach promenade.
Historic Málaga offers countless spots and corners full of local colour. The Merced square, dominated by the Monument to Torrijos and where the house in which the famous painter Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born is situated. A tour of the historic quarter must take in the busy Pasaje de Chinitas, the old streets of the former jewish quarter and calle Larios, the old town's main thoroughfare.
Established in 1490, Santiago is Málaga's oldest church and it was built on the site of a former mosque. Only the central entrance in the Mudéjar style remains of the original façade. The square tower in the same style was conceived as a separate minaret and was attached to the church in the 16th century. From Calle Granada, a beautiful Almohad sebka (a grid of rhombuses) cloth can be seen in one of its sections. Pablo Ruiz Picasso, the brilliant painter who revolutionised 20th century art, was baptised here in 1881.
Pablo Picasso, the most important painter of the 20th century, was born in 1881 at number 15 Plaza de la Merced. Declared a Historic/Artistic Monument of National Interest in 1983, Casa Picasso began by occupying the first floor and now occupies the entire building. The property nestles in the architectural complex known as Casas de Campos (Rural Houses) where Don José Ruiz Blasco and Maria Picasso, Pablo Ruiz Picasso's parents, lived.  
Málaga's Roman Theatre is one of the remaining symbols of Roman Hispania in the city. In addition to the theatre itself, it has a modern interpretation centre where new technologies present the life and customs of the time. The Theatre has also been returned to its original use and different types of shows take place inside.
 
Buenavista Palace houses a permanent collection showing eight decades of work by Pablo Picasso, who was born in Málaga in 1881. The collection conveys the rigor and creativity of an artist who is essential to understand the history of Western art. Further, temporary exhibitions delve into the artistic context, while the program of activities proposes many ways to enjoy the arts. The collection features 233 works that cover 80 years of the painter's work, from 1892 to 1972. 
In the centre stands the Cathedral (16th-18th centuries), also known as “la Manquita” because of its unfinished right tower. This temple, beautifully executed in the Renaissance style, preserves an interesting series of chapels which contain fine examples of Andalusian images. In the old town, other prominent churches are Santiago (15th-18th centuries), with a beautiful Mudejar tower and Sagrado Corazón.

Malaga: Ronda Full Day Excursion

A drive through the rugged Serrania de Ronda will bring you to a broad open plateau surrounded on all sides by jagged mountains. Ronda stands on an enormous outcrop of rock. The centre of town is split by a Bridge built in the 18th century. Wander across the bridge and you are in La Ciudad (old town) inhabited in old days by groups of marauding bandits. During the course of the day you will also see the town’s impressive Cathedral, the Bullring, San Juan Bosco House and the Mondragón Palace.

This town in the Málaga region sits on either side of the Tajo del Ronda, a narrow gorge more than 150 metres deep. Celts, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs all inhabited these lands, which were reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs. The historic quarter, reminiscent of the Arab age and with a medieval layout is scattered to the south of the Guadalevín, while more modern Ronda, the part which sprang up after the 16th century, unfolds to the north of the course of this river.
The major religious work is Santa María la Mayor, where Arab and Christian features combine. On the site of an old Roman temple, the Arabs built the Main Mosque of Ronda in the 13th century. Preserved from this period are the mihrab arch, decorated with stucco, and the minaret, transformed into a belltower.
The House of the Moorish King, meanwhile, boasts Gothic-Mudejar decoration and some hanging gardens, declared to be an Artistic Garden.
The civil architecture of Ronda is reflected in its ancestral homes and aristocratic small palaces such as the Palaces of Mondragón and of the Marquis of Salvatierra. The Mondragón palace was for centuries the residence of Muslim and Christian kings, and today it houses the city's Archaeological Museum.
The San Juan Bosco House is a modernist palace built at the beginning of the 20th century. It is located at the Tajo's edge, at the heart of the historical city quarter of Ronda. It It has got a nice courtyard, decorated with arab style ceramics and a very complete collection of regional ceramics.It is also advisable to see its 19th century tapestries and its walnut furniture.
The gardens are very interesting, due to its placement, being one authentical balcony on to the Serrania.
Three bridges span the ravine measuring more than 100 metres in depth and lead to the other side of the city. The Arab bridge was built in the 14th century and gave access to the Old Outskirts. The so-called old bridge is comprised of a single arch measuring some 10 metres across. But most emblematic of all is the New Bridge, a colossal feat of engineering which joins the neighbourhoods of Mercadillo and Ciudad. And the bullring one of the oldest in Spain and most emblematic for the famous “goyescas” bullfight.

between the Darro and Genil rivers, lies one of the most interesting cities
in eastern Andalusia. Because it was the last city reconquered by the Catholic
Monarchs in 1492, Granada has an unmistakable Arab flavour. Fountains, viewpoints
and Cármenes, the villas surrounded by gardens typical of the city, add to Granada's
unforgettable charm. Not in vain was one of its oldest districts, the Albaicín,
declared a World Heritage Site, together with the Alhambra and the Generalife.

 

The Alhambra's reddish hills
house the old Alcazaba and the Nazarite Royal Palaces. This artistic gem of
Arab Granada, built between the 13th and the 15th centuries, is composed of
many rooms linked by courtyards, gardens and fountains. Its delicate execution
is evident in such places as the courtyards of Arrayanes and Leones, and in
the Salón de los Embajadores or the Sala de las Dos Hermanas. The Generalife
gardens, the summer residence of the Nazarite Monarchs, is also located on this
hill, along with the Palace of Carlos V, a Renaissance-style building.

 

The Albaicín quarter, with
a deep Arab flavour, is located on another one of the city's hills and can be
seen from the Alhambra. Narrow and steep streets are filled with cármenes (traditional
villas with gardens), old mosques on top of which churches have been erected
(San Salvador, San Bartolomé and San José), and little squares like San Nicolás
and San Cristóbal. Both these spots enjoy great views over the Alhambra and
the peaks of Sierra Nevada.

Malaga: Cultural Half Day City Tour

First settled by the seafaring Phoenicians because of its natural harbour, and later conquered by the Arabs, it finally fell into the Spanish hands in 1487. Overlooking the central part of the city one can see the Gibralfaro Castle, originally Phoenician, and later rebuilt by the Arabs. In the centre of the city we will find the Atarazanas Market, the Sagrado Corazon Church, the old Jewish quarter, the Ben Gabirol Jewish Center, the City Hall, Malaga' s Park and the Bullring.

The Castle of Gibralfaro (14th century), joined to the Citadel by a stretch of wall, gives the best views of the city, which opens out onto the sea with the port and the promenade of La Farola, one of the major leisure areas in the city. At the foot of Gibralfaro is the bullring (known as "La Malagueta") and the historic quarter of the city.
One of Malaga's architectural gems is the Atarazanas Market. The main entrance, an imposing horseshoe archway in off-white marble, is in fact the only remaining part of what was once a grand seven-arched shipyard (Ataranzas in arabic). From shipyard to market, Atarazanas underwent many transformations. Following the fall of the city to the Catholics in 1487, a convent was set up there, afterwards the building was turned into a huge military fort for storing weapons. Later, it became a hospital and even housed a medical school.
 
The Sagrado Corazón Church is located in the Plaza de San Ignacio de Loyola. It is a neo- gothic building constructed in 1920, according to the architectural plans of Fernando Guerrero Strachan, who was commissioned by the Jesuits. It has a basilica, divided into three naves. 
Historic Málaga offers countless spots and corners full of local colour. The façade of the City Hall, from the early 20th century, can be admired. A tour of the historic quarter must take in the old streets of the former jewish quarter, the Ben Gabirol Jewish Center in a House-Tower from the 17th century. The famous Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol was born in Malaga. The Juderia or Jewish Quarter was in the eastern part of the city (Postigo de San Agustín, Granada, Santiago, Alcazabilla and Zegrí streets and the Plaza de la Judería), the Synagogue was situated in part of the area where is located nowadays the Bodega el Pimpi Bar Restaurant, and the communal cemetery was on the slopes of Gibralfaro.
Located between the Alameda Principal and the Paseo de España, which runs parallel to Guadiaro Quay, the Malaga's Park extends from the Plaza de General Torrijos to Plaza de la Marina. It is made up of three walkways, each 800 metres long and ten metres wide; one is on the north side and the other two are to the south of the 25 metre-wide central thoroughfare for vehicles, a continuation of the Alameda Principal. It covers an area of 30,000 square metres if we count the rose garden surrounded by orange and cypress trees next to the City Council building and the gardens called Jardines de Puerta Oscura.

Silversea Cruises: Silver Dawn
A new world of luxury is waiting aboard Silver Dawn. Both classic yet modern, Silver Dawn is the natural evolution of our fleet. Large enough to offer eight dining options – including the superb Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) programme – yet small enough for the famed Silversea on board ambience, Silver Dawn inherits the best features of her sister ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon, but is in a class all of her own. Sumptuous suites, outstanding itineraries plus cutting-edge design and technology, Silver Dawn sets new standards of luxury. Let's wake up to a new dawn with Silversea.
