Apartament Constitución Studio
Holiday studio Calle Viento Constitución is located right in the heart of Málaga, in Plaza de la Constitución, an open public space, witness to all the social and cultural events that take place in the city and a local meeting point.
Amongst its surroundings there are shops and department stores. Right next to it is Pasaje de Chinitas, a charming place to have a tapa or a Malaga-style coffee (mitad, nube, corto…). Opposite studio Calle Viento Constitución is Fuente De Génova (Fountain of Genoa), built in the sixteenth century, of Italian Renaissance style.
From this plaza several streets leads off: Calle Larios, main commercial street of the city of Málaga, Calle Compañía, where the House of the Consulate is located, Calle Granada and Calle Especería.
From this location you can draw up many itineraries in order to visit the city’s historical centre and enjoy the many churches, palaces, museums, narrow streets and bars which it is made up of.
There are several museums which can easily be visited from the studio: the Thyssen Museum, just one minute away, Picasso’s Birthplace Museum, 700 metres away, the Málaga Museum, 450 metres away, the Music Museum, 900 metres away, and the Wine Museum, 800 metres away.
You must not leave the city without visiting the Cathedral, known locally as La Manquita (one-armed) and 260 metres from studio Calle Viento Constitución, as well as the Alcazaba, which has the Roman Theatre at its foothills and is 550 metres away.
If you would like to see a theatre play, monologue or performance, you can do so at the Cervantes Theatre, located 500 metres away, or at the Echegarai Theatre, 300 metres away.
At the end of Calle Larios you will find La Alameda Principal (Main Boulevard) where there are several taxi ranks and bus stops, and a little further along you will find the port of Málaga, 1 kilometre from the studio. At the beginning of the port area is the Málaga Eye, from where you can enjoy the best views of the city, and at the end of it is Muelle Uno, an area flanked by shops, restaurants and bars where you can have something to drink whilst contemplating the Málaga bay.
Train station María Zambrano is located a 20 minute walk away and the airport of Málaga is a 20 minute drive away.

Within a maximum radius of 1 kilometre from the studio you will find all the interesting sites in the city centre of Málaga. Even in Plaza de la Contitución, known as the four-street plaza, you will find many places to visit. It is a commercial area with a lot to offer. One of the streets that lead off this plaza is Calle Larios, where you will find all the main international clothing brands. It is a delight to have breakfast at one of the terraces there, enjoy an ice-cream at Casa Mira, an in-cream parlour which makes home-made ice-cream, or have a glass of wine and a tapa at any of the bars in Pasaje de Chinitas.
Picasso’s Birthplace Museum is very interesting and there are guided tours on Tuesdays and Saturdays at a very affordable price. It is located in Plaza de la Merced.
The leisure options are very wide. We recommend visiting Hammam Open Space & Spa, a great place to relax and forget your daily routine with a massage or Turkish bath.
We are lucky to have flamenco venue Los Amaya, located in the Liceo of Málaga, where you can enjoy a flamenco show and a glass of wine, in addition to attending an exhibition related to flamenco. You can also add to the experience by visiting Los Patios de Beatas, a few steps away from this flamenco venue. It is a restaurant/wine bar located within a restored eighteenth century mansion with interior patios where you can enjoy live shows and contemporary local food.
Another site worth visiting is local market Mercado de Atarazanas, where you can see, buy, touch, smell and eat food. It has several bars with terraces in its interior and it is becoming increasingly popular amongst locals and visitors due to the quality of its fresh products and because it is located on what was formerly a nineteenth century Nasrid shipyard. The huge door on the building’s facade with its spectacular mosaic glass is the main focal point.
Another must visit is Muelle Uno, located along the Málaga Port, which is the jewel in the crown. It constitutes a new concept of open shopping area which offers a wide range of food, shops and art. You can find craftwork, theatres and al fresco street shows for children and adults, in addition to the Pompidou Museum offering collection exhibitions and mediation programmes.
