Explore the heritage of Malaga on your holiday

A walk through the winding streets of Malaga can inspire you on your holiday. Take to the streets of Malaga's Old Town, the cultural hub of the city, for quirky galleries and cafés, where you can always stop for a quick tapas lunch. Further on, you'll find the Picasso Museum, a testament to the venerable Spanish master of the arts, with his works resting in a centuries-old Andalusian mansion in the city centre. For something more modern on your holiday, guide your steps to the Contemporary Art Centre, which hosts exhibitions of modern artists from all around the world. And don't keep your eyes closed whilst wandering the paths of the Old Town, as architectural testaments to Malaga's heritage abound.

Use your holiday in Malaga to sample Spanish cuisine

With a great number of influences on its cuisine, you'll be sure to have a one of a kind holiday dining experience at restaurants in Malaga. Roman, Moorish and Spanish influence come through in Malagan tapas, but the town's biggest influence on gastronomy continues to be the availability of fresh-caught seafood from the neighbouring Mediterranean. With red mullet and whiting fish, as well as lobsters and sardines, always available, fans of seafood dishes will delight on holiday in Malaga. Complement the experience with wine from one of Malaga's many vineyards, famous around the world for their tempting batches.

Relaxing holiday day trips around Malaga

From Gibralfaro Castle in Malaga, you'll be able to see all points in the city in beyond, prompting day trips when on holiday in the city. For sport enthusiasts, a holiday trip to the Malaga region's many golf courses, such as San Roque Valderrama, might be tempting using car hire in Malaga. For a more adventurous holiday day trip, head east to visit the vast caverns found near the town of Nerja, where visitors can cool down amidst underground oddities.
