Located in the heart of Andalucía, Malaga is the capital of the ‘Costa de Sol’. Enjoying almost 300 days of sun a year, the city is a popular destination for holiday-makers. Away from the beautiful weather, Malaga is a very unique city visually, having been influenced by an array of cultures over time, such as; the Romans, Vice Goths and Moors.

If you want to explore the cultural sites of Malaga, start your trip off at one of the most popular landmarks; The Roman Theatre, which is the oldest monument in the city and has remained buried underground for centuries. Very close to the theatre is La Alcazaba, a Roman fortification that gives you a 360 degree view of the city. It was built in the 8th century and it is probably the best-preserved Moorish fortress palace in Spain. If you love panoramic views check out the Gibralfaro Castle, located on a foothill, 130 m high overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Malaga city centre is always full of life throughout the year. In Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution Square), the city celebrates some of its most popular festivals like the Feria, where people from all over Spain travel to Malaga to spend a few days of dancing, food and fun.

Malaga’s cuisine is very popular and varied. Some of the local hang outs are named as ‘Chiringuitos’ which are located on beaches throughout the Costa del Sol. They serve anything from popular local cuisines, fresh fish dishes, homemade paella and gazpacho.

If you want a bit of the high life, pampering and luxury why not rent a car from Malaga and drive 40 minutes down to Marbella. This popular holiday destination is filled with beautiful beaches, well known golf resorts, and one of the most exclusive marinas areas of Spain, Puerto Banus.

In full, Malaga is filled with an array of activities. From the historical city centre to the luxury life of Marbella, there is always something to see!
