A fascinating mix of ultra-modern and historic, book a flight to Málaga and explore a bustling, traditional Mediterranean port that radiates beauty in many ways.
The buzzing centre, with its unfinished medieval cathedral, narrow streets, balconied traditional buildings and tapas bars is an unforgettable and very typically Spanish experience. Book a flight to Málaga and immerse yoursel in the charm of old Spain.
Gibralfaro Castle and the nearby Roman Theatre and Alcazaba are probably the top three attractions here, and from this elevated spot you can get great views across the city during your trip to Málaga. Enjoy the fountains, gardens and a stroll around the battlements. The Picasso Museum is home to many pieces by Málaga’s most famous son, and the city’s cathedral, the Manquita, is also worth a visit.
"The Conception Botanical Garden is good for a stroll and the Thyssen Museum houses a grand collection of Spanish 19th century paintings."Atarazanas Market is the central market of Málaga and dates back to the 14th century. It was built as a dry dockyard for ship construction and now sells everything you can think of, from fruit and vegetables to oil, olives and fish.
For the best view of Málaga, go up to the top of the Parador de Málaga Gibralfaro and enjoy a drink and snack on the terrace of the Parador Hotel whilst watching the sun set over the ancient city. It’s an easier alternative to climbing up Gibralfaro Castle.
Between 5 and 7 p.m. is ‘meriende time’ in Málaga, when everyone seems to be out strolling, especially in the Calle Larious, the main thoroughfare of the city. Enjoy coffee or tea with fritters and watch the world go by. The other great area for walking during your trip to Málaga is the Pier 1 Port of Málaga. Opened in 2011, it has superb views of the Alcazaba and Gibralfaro Castle and is home to many shops and restaurants. Mitjano square is also a good place to visit in the evening, especially after 11. The square is the heart of Málaga and is packed with people enjoying coffee and pastries late into the evening.
If you are looking for out-of-town excrusions, we recommend you visit at least one of the cities surrounding it. Less than hour a way by car lies Marabella, one of the most visited tourist destinations in Spain, known the world-over for its glamorous beaches and luxury resorts. For a more laid-back trip, head 100 kilometers west of the city, where you will find the charming city of Ronda. Surrounded by mountains and home to river valleys, the city offers some of Spain's most dramatic natural sceneries.
From sensational seafood to atmospheric tapas bars and Michelin-starred dining venues, Málaga is a real gourmet’s delight. Traditional Andalucía tapas can be found all over the city and the bustling quayside is especially good for seafood. Organic vegetables and locally caught fish are used in most of the recipes, and there are many other traditional dishes on offer.
Try the local specialty Gazpachuelo, a variant of tomato soup which incorporates mayonnaise and fish. The new gastro-bars which are appearing now along the coast are also worth trying, especially for their platters of fried fish.
When travelling to Málaga for shopping, visitors are never disappointed. The shopping opportunities here represent an exotic mix of old and new, from low key parochial outlets selling traditional arts and crafts to the more recent options like international chains and boutique outlets.
Find souvenirs along the coastal strip and designer goods nearer the centre of the city. All the big Spanish retailers are represented in fashionable streets like the Avenida de Andalucia, but there are also many fun weekly markets in the city and literally hundreds of smaller outlets."
