Málaga

Cultural delights in the birthplace of Picasso

Visit Málaga

Introduction

With its superb array of Islamic architecture, Roman ruins and modernist art galleries, the south-coast city of Málaga – the birthplace of one Pablo Picasso – goes far beyond the sun-kissed cliches of its Costa del Sol location.

Art & Culture at every turn

Indeed, Malaga is said to have more museums than any other city in Andalucia. And, ever since the opening of a major museum dedicated to the city's favourite son, this lively port city has been enjoying something of a cultural renaissance.

And, there's plenty more to enjoy, too, from its dining scene – expect to find traditional tapas bars, Michelin-star restaurants and everything in between – to a delightful array of accommodation, tucked away between Roman ruins and Moorish extravagances. Then, along the coast, the beaches of the Costa del Sol are within easy reach.


Roman amphitheatre, Malaga 

A coastal gem, laced with history

Malaga's town beach is attractive, sandy and long, dotted with beach bars serving traditional 'espeto' sardines and local beers. Back in town, charming Moorish tearooms are perfect to avoid the midday heat alongside numerous tapas bars for whiling evenings. At the top of the hill overlooking it all sits the Moorish castle of Gibralfaro, known for being besieged for three long months by the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella.

Don't miss a stroll through the historical centre with its grand cathedral and jumble of narrow streets and ochre buildings. Come evening, everything explodes into life for hours, with Malaga's bars staying open long into the night.
