Situated on Andalusia's beautiful Mediterranean coast, Malaga offers everything you would expect from a city on the Costa del Sol: seemingly endless stretches of golden sand beaches, fantastic restaurants serving traditional tapas and friendly bars attract locals and holidaymakers alike.
There's much more to the region's captivating capital than busy beach resorts though. Dig a little deeper and a wealth of cultural, historical, artistic and architectural treasures reveal themselves, such as Catedral de Málaga, the statuesque and striking Alcazaba Fortress and Castillo de Gibralfaro. Not-to-be-missed is the Picasso Museum, which exhibits a fantastic collection of masterpieces from arguably Malaga's most famous 'son', Pablo Picasso. [ReadMore]
What's more, Malaga is also your gateway to Granada and the glorious Alhambra, where proud 14th century palaces and exotic gardens are Spain's finest expression of Moorish art; as well as the Ronda Valley, where on tour you can explore a charming old town and the picturesque El Tajo gorge.
A journey through the heart of Andalusia from Malaga brings the beautiful city of Granada, renowned for its stunning surroundings, excellent shopping and diverse mix of landmarks.
Approximately 70 miles from Malaga, Ronda typifies a traditional Andalusian town. Glorious sights include the New Bridge, Ronda Bullring, the Almocavar Gate, Alameda Gardens and the El Tajo gorge.
Pablo Picasso is Malaga’s most famous son and a visit to the museum will showcase many of the painter’s great works. The collection includes works loaned by relatives, which include portraits of Picasso’s immediate family.
