The Alcazaba fortress and palace, home of the rulers of the Muslim sultanate of Málaga.
The majestic Cathedral, erected during the first half of the sixteenth century.
The Historical District of Málaga, where architecture from different centuries mingle, as is to be expected in a living and constantly evolving city.
Andalucía: the home of Flamenco. Several times of the year there are special festivals dedicated to Flamenco dancing, however in many local bars you will experience this on a daily basis, as well as the Spanish guitar popularised by Andres Segovia.
Modern Málaga is the tourist centre of the Costa del Sol, sun & beaches, tapas bars & restaurants, and much more.
Malaga is a food-lover’s haven, with literally hundreds of wine bars, tapas bars and beach side restaurants serving low cost food such as fresh grilled sardines, an assortment of local fish and seafood called, “fritura malagueña” and all manner of Mediterranean cuisine.
