Mini Travel Guide to Malaga
Although many visitors skip Malaga on their way to nearby coastal resorts, it is worth stopping to experience this fascinating port city. Explore central Malaga’s narrow old streets and broad, leafy boulevards on foot making the time to call in at the Museo Picasso Malaga which holds a collection of paintings, sculptures, ceramics and sketchings by the city’s favourite son.
For far-reaching views head up to the Castillo de Gibralfaro for a walk around the ramparts before visiting Alcazaba, an impressive Moorish fortification that is situated next to a Roman theatre.
If all the sightseeing has given you an appetite, Malaga has some excellent restaurants and authentic tapas bars. Freshly-caught, grilled sardines and fish fried in olive oil are among local specialities. After dark, Malaga s bars, cafes and nightclubs come alive and offer entertainment into the early hours.
Sun lovers will find several nearby beaches, but many visitors head out of Malaga to lively beach resorts along the Costa del Sol. Popular resorts include Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos.
