The port city of Malaga is located in southern Spain on Costa del Sol. Start your exploration of the city at the iconic Constitution Square. It leads to Buenavista Palace, which houses the Picasso Museum showcasing 285 paintings donated by Picasso’s family. Nearby is Malaga’s ornate cathedral, well worth a visit. Perched above the town are the magnificent Moorish citadels of Alcazaba and Gibralfaro where you’ll get commanding views over the city and the Mediterranean Sea. Stroll down the pleasant Paseo del Parque promenade to the beach. Take a guided tour of Astilleros Nereo, Spain’s oldest working shipyard, known for its traditionally constructed wooden boats. Explore contemporary street art at the waterfront Soho quarter, decorated with giant murals. Here, you’ll also find Malaga’s best craft beer bars and fusion restaurants. Relax with a steamy Turkish bath and massage at the Arabic Baths. End the day mingling with locals at beachside restaurants, or at live music tapas bars in the Old Town as you savor fresh seafood paired with sweet local wines.
