Capital of the Costa del Sol
Modern yet historic, Málaga is a lively city famous for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. The pleasantly pedestrianized city center boasts an imposing Gothic cathedral surrounded by narrow winding streets. Spend your holiday exploring these alleys, which hide a myriad of tapas bars, shops, restaurants, museums, and art galleries. Relaxed and friendly, the city offers a multitude of other attractions, including picture-perfect beaches, hiking trails, and stunning architectural sites. Malaga is an ideal base for exploring other nearby places to visit, such as the Strait of Gibraltar and Tarifa. Exciting drives inland reveal hidden gems, including small restaurants attractively nestled in the rolling hills, which offer a truly authentic taste of Andalucía.
