The Spanish port city of Malaga is a wonderful break from the sprawling beaches, resorts, and golf courses of the Costa Del Sol.
Similar to other Spanish cities, Malaga is a great representation of the layered past of Spain: Romans and Moorish rule. It is also one of the oldest cities in Spain.
The Alcazaba and Gibralfaro represent this history. As you walk along Malaga’s streets, it’s clear to see why Picasso was so inspired by his surroundings of street art, murals, and the mosaic floors within these ancient streets,
This was once a stop-through on the way to Costa Del Sol (Marbs) but it really shouldn’t be missed. You can’t miss the Malaga salad (cod, potatoes, onions and oranges) paired with a sweet wine. Tapas can be enjoyed at Malaga favourite El Pimpi.
The landmarks are truly breath-taking. They are monumental, conveniently close together, and convenient to get around. The city is easy to navigate, and the transport is efficient. When it comes to food and drink, there are some buzzing hot-spots as well as hidden gems off the beaten track.
