Best hotels, facts and information in Málaga
Málaga, one of eight provinces in Andalucia, Spain, is located on the Mediterranean Sea in southern Spain—and is close to Sevilla and Granada. The largest coastal city in the south, Málaga has about 600,000 inhabitants, called Malagueños, who get to experience more than 300 days of sun a year and an average year-round temperature of 73 degrees Fahrenheit. Agriculture and tourism may be the mainstays of Málaga’s industry, however, it also lays claim to the second largest industrial port in Spain.
Pablo Picasso was born in Málaga, so make sure to visit the Museo Picasso Málaga. The museum houses a large selection of Picasso’s work from the exclusive collection of Christine Ruiz-Picasso, the widow of Picasso’s son Paul, and their son, Bernard.
Architectural points of interest are also abundant, in particular, La Alcazaba and the Gibralfaro Castle. La Alcazaba, one of the city’s most distinctive buildings, is a military fortress built by the Moors in the 11th century. Many people flock here just to explore the gardens, which are particularly lush between April and June. The Gibralfaro Castle, situated on the top of a hill, was built by the Muslim King Yusuf in the 14th and 15th centuries, and offers a panoramic view of the city not to be forgotten.
The Cathedral, the Roman Theater and any of the bullfighting rings in Málaga are all great ways to take in the cultural treasures the city has to offer. Malagueños are known for their relentless adoration of their country and for their love of late nights—meaning there is no shortage of first-rate bars, restaurants and bodegas.
