Málaga

The Gibralfaro castle casts a watchful eye over this warm-hearted and lively city full of attractive sites such as the Alameda Principal avenue and the La Farola seafront promenade.
Its status as the capital of the Costa del Sol has made it one of Spain's foremost holiday destinations, thanks to its mild climate, its beaches and its outstanding offer of golf courses.

Fenicios, griegos, cartagineses, romanos...las principales civilizaciones mediterráneas encontraron en Málaga hace más de dos milenios un enclave privilegiado para el establecimiento de rutas comerciales, gracias a la estratégica situación de su puerto. La Alcazaba (s. VIII-XI) es, además de uno de los símbolos de la ciudad, una de las mayores fortalezas árabes de Andalucía. En esta edificación tiene su sede el Museo Arqueológico, que contiene valiosas piezas de las épocas fenicia y romana.

Desde el Castillo de Gibralfaro (s. XIV), unido a la Alcazaba por un lienzo de muralla, se obtienen las mejores vistas de la ciudad, que se abre al mar con el puerto y el paseo marítimo de La Farola, una de las principales zonas de ocio de la ciudad. A los pies de Gibralfaro se extienden el Teatro Romano, la plaza de toros (conocida como La Malagueta) y el casco histórico de la ciudad.

En su centro se levanta la Catedral (s. XVI-XVIII), también conocida como “la Manquita” por su inacabada torre derecha. Este templo, de bellísima factura renacentista, conserva un interesante conjunto de capillas que contienen buenos ejemplos de la imaginería andaluza. En el barrio viejo destacan otras iglesias como la de Santiago (s. XV-XVIII), con bella torre mudéjar, la de los Mártires, el Sagrado Corazón y el Santo Cristo de la Salud.

La Málaga histórica ofrece innumerables lugares y rincones típicos. Así, puede admirarse la fachada del Ayuntamiento, de principios del siglo XX, o bien la plaza de la Merced, presidida por el Monumento a Torrijos y donde queda emplazada la casa natal del célebre pintor Pablo Ruiz Picasso. El recorrido por el casco antiguo ha de pasar por el concurrido Pasaje de Chinitas, la calle Granada, con el Museo de Bellas Artes, o la calle Larios, principal arteria del casco antiguo.

La capital malagueña dispone, asimismo, de amplias zonas verdes, como el Parque, la Alameda Principal, los jardines de Puerta Oscura y Pedro Luis Alonso. Fiestas y alrededores

Una buena época para visitar Málaga es durante la Semana Santa. Esta fiesta, declarada en Málaga de Interés Turístico Internacional, sobresale por sus monumentales pasos y por el fervor popular que despierta en cada barrio. Una de las mejores opciones de alojamiento en la capital malagueña pasa por el Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro, ubicado junto al Castillo. Conviene, sin embargo, reservar alojamiento con suficiente antelación durante esas fechas.

En sus alrededores, Málaga invita a recorrer una provincia marcada por los fuertes contrastes existentes entre los pueblos del interior y la costa. La Costa del Sol se encuentra jalonada por poblaciones de gran tradición turística, como Benalmádena, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella o Estepona. En este litoral también es posible disfrutar de establecimientos hoteleros como el Parador de Málaga Golf o el de Nerja.

Malaga Voor jou

Cultural

The birthplace of Pablo Picasso

The figure of the artist is everywhere in Malaga. The best example is the Picasso Museum, founded in 2003; in addition to the painter's House-Museum. Another visit not to be missed is to the Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga, which highlights the importance of Andalusian artists to 19th-century Spanish painting.
What's more, simply by strolling around its historic centre visitors can immerse themselves in the city's heritage, with monuments like the cathedral, a fine example of an Andalusian Renaissance church; the Alcazaba, a 10th-century Arab palace-fortress; and the Roman Theatre.
The city's best-known festivities are the Easter week commemorations and the Malaga Fair. This first event has been declared a Festivity of International Tourist Interest, and the second –in August– is an excuse to fill the city's streets with good-natured high spirits. Finally, Malaga is an excellent destination for those who want to learn more about the art of flamenco.


Active

Golf enthusiasts have another good excuse to visit Malaga, as there are around 30 courses scattered throughout the province, some of which are among the best in Europe.
The city is also the perfect place for enjoying a day at the beach. You can choose from busy urban beaches like La Malagueta, or else more secluded ones like the beach at Guadalmar. Its coastline is also an invitation to indulge in a range of nautical sports.
There are various nature areas in the interior of the province, including the nature reserves of Los Alcornocales-Sierra del Aljibe, Montes de Málaga, and Sierra de las Nieves.


Gastronomic

Mediterranean flavours

The region's seafood and the produce from the inland areas have combined to create a highly varied gastronomy.

On the coast the most popular dish is the fresh fried seafood platter known as 'pescaíto frito', although other typical dishes include rice with seafood, monkfish with potatoes and noodle casserole.
Soups have pride of place in the cuisine of Malaga, with specialities such as gazpachuelo (a soup made from potato and mayonnaise), gazpacho malagueño and ajoblanco (a type of cold almond soup served with grapes). These dishes can be accompanied by wines with the Malaga Designation of Origin.
And for dessert, choices include sweet potato (baked or in syrup), olive oil wafers, and raisins from La Axarquía.


For young people

This city by the sea has large gardens and parks for strolling, charming squares for whiling away the time and a pleasant climate almost all year round. It also has an attractive marina.
If you're in search of fun, the historic centre of the city offers a wide range of possibilities with well-known clubs, pubs, bars, outdoor cafes and venues catering to the LGBT community.
The city's surroundings also have a number of recreational and entertainment options, including amusement parks like the Tivoli World in Benalmádena, famous marine resorts like Marbella, as well as water parks.


With children

Malaga is an easy and convenient city for exploring with young children thanks to the numerous pedestrian streets and gardens in the historic centre. You can also enjoy a great day at the beach in the city itself. Some of its museums –like the Picasso Museum and the Carmen Thyssen Museum– organise activities to encourage the whole family to learn more about art together.
Nearby you'll find a whole range of ideas for activities with children. For example, Benalmádena is home to the Tivoli World amusement park, and two centres for learning more about marine fauna –Selwo Marina and the Sea Life aquarium; Torremolinos has a crocodile theme park (Cocodrilos Park) and the Aqualand waterpark; while in Fuengirola visitors can go to the modern Fuengirola Bioparc zoo. You'll find all these attractions about half an hour outside Malaga.


Shopping

The historic centre of Malaga is an ideal place for enjoying a great day's shopping. The area around the Calle Larios is home to numerous fashionable shops. What's more, many of these streets are for pedestrians only, making this the ideal place for a pleasant stroll. There are also numerous traditional cafés for when you feel like taking a break.
Another option is to visit one of the shopping centres. Two of the best-known in the city are the Málaga Plaza and the Larios Centro, while on the outskirts of town you'll find the Factory Outlet Málaga and the Plaza Mayor shopping centre.


Business

Malaga brings all the attractions of the Costa del Sol, one of the world's most sought-after tourist destinations, to your business meetings. It has a first-rate accommodation infrastructure: after all, this is the province with the highest hotel capacity in Andalusia.
The various venues available for events include the modern, multi-purpose Conference and Exhibition Centre, whose architectural design is inspired by the Mediterranean Sea. What's more, the city is just a few hours' flight from the main European capitals thanks to its international airport, just 8 kilometres from the city centre.


Nightlife

Malaga's nightlife guarantees a good time. The evening starts out in the restaurants and pubs to be found around the historic centre, while for dancing we recommend the streets between the squares of Plaza de la Constitución, San Ignacio and La Merced and Calle Echegaray. You'll be sure to have a great time in some of the avant-garde venues, exclusive clubs, discos catering to the LGBT crowd, or even in a 19th-century mansion converted into a dance club.
The area around Malaga also offers a range of nightlife options, particularly in the summer months. Some of the most popular locations include Marbella, Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmádena.
