Malaga – Explore the Costa del Sol
Malaga is situated in Costa del Sol, near the international Airport Costa del Sol and is an ideal city to make it our starting point to explore all Andalusia.
Surrounded by mountains and bounded by the rivers Guadalmedina and Guadalhorce in Costa del Sol: a historic and culturally rich provincial capital that has lived in the shadow of the cities of Granada, Córdoba and Seville.
Malaga is one of the oldest cities in Europe and was influenced by many civilizations of the Mediterranean, from the Phoenicians to the Romans, thanks to the strategic location of its port. So Malaga is not only the capital of the Costa del Sol, a destination well known throughout the world since the beginning of the tourist boom in this area, but it’s also a city with a great historical heritage that must be visited. To visit the city you only need one weekend because it’s not so big, like Madrid or Barcelona.

You can visit an incomplete cathedral due to the lack of funds, known as ‘La Manquita’, the Alcazaba Arabic Castle and the Gibralfaro castle with beautiful gardens located inside. Malaga is also the city of Pablo Picasso’s birthplace, and the square where he used to play as a child still exists today, as well as his house which is now a museum that we can visit during our stay in Malaga.
