The Soho Quarter

On the other side, across the Main Alameda, we are between the Guadalhorce River and Muelle Uno, the Soho, the Arts District. These streets were made with the effort of neighbors and merchants to give impetus to the area through the MAUS project, Malaga Art Urban Soho, which consisted of turning everything into a large art gallery. There, all the expressions of the performing arts, theatre, music, photography, exchange markets, workshops or video creations were organized and the most prestigious urban artists from many countries translated their paintings on walls.

Nearby, in the old Wholesale Market of Malaga, stands the C.A.C. Contemporary Art Center, which houses in its area an artistic tour of the twentieth century. It is characterized by promoting and exposing avant-garde movements and trends and is a free municipal bet in operation since 2003.
