A must-see in Spain is the port city of Malaga, located on the Mediterranean Costa del Sol; enjoy the warm hospitality of the Andalusians on your Malaga holidays, and tour the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and see his artwork in the museums.
Picasso’s home on Plaza de la Merced has been converted into a museum managed by the Picasso Foundation, containing valuable collections of the artist’s diverse works, ranging from sculpture, drawings, photographs, engravings, and book illustrations. You have to see all of these to appreciate the creative genius of the master.
From within the city, you can follow a path that leads to the Moorish citadels of Gibralfaro and Alcazaba, for a glimpse into the Medieval architecture that comprises most of the old buildings in the city.
Near the former fishing villages of Pedregalejo and El Palo, now suburban zones, you'll find a stretch of small beaches that have the best fish and seafood cafés in Andalusia.
The best month to be in Malaga is August, when you can experience Feria de Malaga, a Malaga festival celebrating Spanish culture and history. During the day, flamenco shows and live mariachi bands entertain the revelers; at night, fun rides and games at the Palacia de Feria commence. The restaurants and nightclubs at the Feria are also packed at this time.
For anyone who wants to enjoy Spanish hospitality, Malaga is the perfect place to have a holiday.
