On the beautiful Andalucían coast in southern Spain lies the port city of Malaga, a gateway to the exciting offerings of the Costa del Sol and a major seaside destination thanks to its sublime natural beauty, rich culture and sunny disposition. Brimming with history, a booming art scene, gastronomic delights galore and a friendly, youthful hum that reverberates through its busy tapas bars and lively beaches, the reasons to head off on a Malaga holiday are plentiful. It’s one of the oldest cities in Europe and has the architectural credentials and historic sights to match; a Roman Amphitheatre built
into the hillside is the city’s oldest monument and sits beneath Alcazaba, an interesting Moorish palace-fortress that offers some of the best views of Malaga. The centre of the city is small and perfectly formed so you can easily combine monument-visiting with plenty of tapas eating and boutique shopping. Malaga is the birthplace of Picasso and the world of art thrives here, with a museum dedicated to its most famous inhabitant - showcasing some of his early work, along with many modern art museums, an array of street art masterpieces and an edgy, creative quarter called Soho. Malaga has also found its feet within the culinary arts and has carved out a reputation as something of a gastronomical centre with an excellent food market and numerous Michelin-starred restaurants. Experiencing somewhat of a tourism transformation for the modern traveller, we advise going on your Malaga holidays before the rush.
