what it is
Soho Málaga – Barrio de las Artes is an initiative born of the citizens themselves to rehabilitate the area between the south of the Alameda and the Muelle de Heredia. This old bourgeois residential area, located in a privileged enclave of the city, with the passage of time has been presenting disturbing signs of urban and commercial degradation, for which it has opted to create a Cultural District that, under the internationally known brand of ‘Soho’, invigorates the environment and offers both the local population and visitors a modern and differentiated offer of leisure, culture, commerce and business.
This proposal has been decidedly accepted by the City Council of Malaga, which has set up work teams for its development in different Municipal Areas.
The Soho Málaga – Barrio de las Artes concept is applied to a very specific and very well delimited area of the city center:
- North – South Axis : Between the South of the Alameda and the Muelle de Heredia, next to the Port of Málaga.
- East – West Axis : Between the Plaza de La Marina and the Guadalmedina River.
Its proximity to the main tourist assets of the city (C / Larios, Alameda Principal, Paseo del Parque, Puerto de Málaga, etc.), its particular architecture (with magnificent buildings of the 19th and 20th centuries) and the presence of notable spaces cultural centers (Center for Contemporary Art, Municipal Archive and Alameda Theater) make it a promising environment with possibilities to become a real modern and cosmopolitan business and residential center.
How to get to
It is, on the other hand, the best communicated area of the city: in the same Soho, or around it, some of the main roads of the city run.
In the Alameda the headwaters of a large part of the urban bus lines converge, as well as being the axis of the city’s bicycle lane.
In the Muelle de Heredia there is the Intercity Bus Station, with connections to all the municipalities on the coast, from Manilva to Nerja.
Next to the Guadalmedina River is the Suburban Train Station.
To access by car, there are many parking spaces in the blue zone and parking, public and private.
Its proximity to the Port and the future arrival of the Metro complete the vision of the Soho Málaga – Barrio de las Artes as a meeting point and crossroads of the local and visitor population of our city.
