365 Things To Do In Palos Verdes – Malaga Cove Plaza

Malaga Cove Plaza, Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274

Malaga Cove Plaza in Palos Verdes Estates 90274 was built in 1925 and is the home of the famous Neptune’s Statue. It is composed of several buildings in old rustic Spanish Renaissance style with arches that stretch out along its walkways.  It is located at the base of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and is an inviting stop before continuing up the hill from Redondo Beach. Today it consists of small retail stores, a bank, Malaga Cove Cafe, office buildings and Malaga Cove Ranch Market.

The fountain is a replica of one found in Bologna, Italy which is of the Roman god Neptune known as King of the Sea.  It was dedicated in 1930 and is the central point of the plaza. From here you can even walk down the hill to the ocean, or uphill a short block to the Library.  The Palos Verdes Police Department, city offices, and county fire department are located south – across Via Corta – from Malaga Cove Plaza.

The Palos Verdes Art Center hosts a monthly Saturday Art Show on the greens in Malaga Cove Plaza from April through September from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
