Why visit Malaga?
It is one of the oldest cities in Europe, being a reference for all the people that conquered and created it because of its perfect situation on the Mediterranean Sea. Phoenicians, Germans, taifas kingdoms lived in the city until 1487, when the Catholic Kings completed the city reconquest, began to be part of the kingdom of Spain.
Today, with a population of around 600.000 inhabitants, Malaga is known throughout the world for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas, but the city has much more to offer with a wide range of museums, delicious cuisine and a Cultural life to the level of any European city.
The Alcazaba, the Cathedral, the Muelle Uno, the Picasso Museum or Gibralfaro are some of the must-see places in the city, but it is during Holy Week (Semana Santa) and the Fair (August) when the city reaches its splendor.
