Malaga – the Capital of the Costa del Sol – Spain’s sun coast.

The Province of Malaga is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the World. It is not hard to understand why, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, fantastic beaches, great food and a wealth of cultural and historical monuments.

The development of Malaga’s International airport (now handling over 7 million passengers a year) the expansion of Malaga’s port – soon to be one of the largest in the Mediterranean – have meant that the city of Malaga and the surrounding areas are ever more accessible and will remain so in the future.
Malaga is one of the oldest cities in Europe, with a fascinating history that dates back to 800BC. Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, the Moors and even the French have all left their mark. As with so many towns in Andalucía, the Moorish presence is the one that is most felt today. Many of Malaga’s most famous landmarks come from the Moorish times, including the Gibralfaro Castle and the Alcazaba.

The Picasso museum, Plaza de la Merced, Calle Larios, Plaza de la Constitución, Cervantes theater, Malaga’s Cathedrals, and, of course, the beaches. These are just a small taste of what the city has to offer. Malaga is a Spanish town, with a very Spanish feel to it. Come and see for yourself.
