The combination of culture and the sea, the lively atmosphere, the variety of tapas served in bars, high-end neighbourhoods like Soho, areas like the harbour that have changed and become more modern and monuments with centuries of history, the result is a city full of passion that everyone would like to explore.

Malaga is a city full of historic sites such as the Alcazaba, one of the largest Arab fortresses in Andalusia, or Gibralfaro Castle, which offers the best views of the whole city.

At the foot of the castle there is a Roman theatre and an old town to wander around. Walking through its streets, you will find places such as the Atarazanas market and monuments such as the cathedral, known as "one-armed" (la manquita) thanks to its unfinished south tower.


Here in the city of Pablo Picasso you can visit the excellent Picasso Museum in the centre and the home where he was born.

But Malaga doesn't just live on its past. In recent years it has opened the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the only Pompidou Centre outside France - its colourful cubes have become iconic - or the collection of the Russian Museum in St Petersburg.

A sunny day spent on the city's legendary La Malagueta beach is a must. Anyone wanting to immerse themselves in traditional flavours should visit the seaside district of Pedregalejo and sample the typical grilled sardines on rye.


Nearby La Malagueta you'll find Muelle 1, a harbour promenade full of shops and restaurants, perfect for a sunset stroll to La Farola lighthouse, the city's symbol.

Don't forget to visit the pedestrianised Marqués de Larios, a bustling street decorated with flowers, at least once on your trip to Malaga.

At night, this area and its nearby streets become the perfect place for tapas at local restaurants, and don't forget to try the chilled garlic soup ajoblanco.
