Malaga's traditional harbor has been transformed into an attractive pedestrian-friendly venue. Combining the Palaza de la Marina, the Palmeral de las Sorpresas and Muelle Uno (Pier 1), this area has promenades, public art, restaurants, cafes, shops and museums. It also serves as a pleasant route linking the city center with the cruise terminal.
Malaga has the only branch of the Pompidour Center outside of France. Housed in a colorful glass cube building known as “El Cubo”, the Pompidour Centre Malaga opened in 2015. It contains some 80 works by 20th and 21st century artists as well as temporary exhibits.
At the end of the causeway linking the cruise terminal to the mainland is Malaga's lighthouse known as La Farola. Built in 1817, the lighthouse was severely damaged in the earthquake of 1884 and was not repaired until 1913. It was damaged again during th Spanish Civil War in the 1930s and was rebuilt in 1939. La Farola has become a symbol of Malaga but remains an active aide to navigation.
