Often seen as a gateway to the popular areas of the Costa del Sol and Andalucía. And it’s easy to see why with stunning mountain ranges to the north, Mediterranean beaches to the south, and a scattering of whitewashed villages and golf courses to allure. Yet, Malaga should not be overlooked.
Immerse yourself in the history and culture of Malaga – one of the world’s oldest cities and the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. Europe’s southernmost city is overflowing with stunning architecture and museums showcasing Malaga’s rich past. Stroll through the cobbled streets and little chinitas, where local bars and restaurants vie for your attention. Be tempted by a delicious tapeo and then another -– try some pescito frito (fried fish) or some barbecued sardines, washed down with an aperativo. A glass of sweet Malaga wine, chilled with ice, is often the perfect accompaniment. Then find an Abyssinia, where you can listen to live music and while the night away.
