Things to see
Málaga, the heart of the Costa del Sol, is a striking combo of nature, culture and cuisine. Its streets are a living museum of centuries of artistic contributions, bringing together Arab, Roman and Baroque monuments such as the Alcazaba, the Roman theatre, the Cathedral and the Gibralfaro Castle. Picasso's art is also alive and well in the city, given that the Picasso Museum's permanent collection is housed in the Buenavista Palace.
Thanks to Málaga's location, nestled between mountains and natural parks, the city enjoys nearly 3,000 hours of sun per year. This ideal climate makes its beaches a household name throughout Europe. Within the urban area itself there are 15 beaches, all with amenities and services, including the 1 km long La Malagueta. Along the nearby coast, Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Marbella welcome many tourists to their combined 160 km of beaches.
A night out for tapas
Dine out in Málaga and experience the region's most traditional recipes made with the finest ingredients. Whether you're dining in town or at one of the beach huts, be sure to try the popular pescaíto frito and other seafood tapas or dishes from the inland mountains. For a culinary tour in town, start walking along Calle Larios toward Plaza de la Constitución and check out the bars and restaurants on the Pasaje de Chinitas pedestrian street. Then, walk toward Plaza de la Merced until you reach the Alcazaba, where some of the city's most picturesque bars are located (Calle Granada).
