Malaga Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see

The city of Malaga is the vibrant, wholely Spanish, joint (with Sevilla) capital of the province of Andalucia. It has the 3 Fs - festivals, flamenco and fun. The centre of the Costa del sol, it is often overlooked by the tourists arriving at the recently-upgraded Malaga Airport and rushing to their resort of choice.

It is strung out between the mountains and the Mediterranian. As such, it has both the city life and the beaches. Although there is a major botanical garden in the foothills, the Paseo del Parque by the port has a variety of trees offering a cool promenade in summer.

Like many cities, it is an amalgam of the villages around a central point, in this case the port. Even through the frantic building of the 90s, many have managed to retain their character - notably Huelin and Pedrogalego.

Culturally important, it has a Roman theatre and an Arabic castle. It is the home of Piccaso and Antonio Banderas. Rarely a week goes by without a festival of music, theatre and art. There are museums and art galleries for every taste.
