Malaga highlights

Malaga is a world apart from the adjoining Costa del Sol; a modern yet historic city, it still has the atmosphere and swagger of a Mediterranean port. The historic city centre, is charming with its majestic unfinished Gothic cathedral, surrounded by traditional balconied buildings, narrow pedestrian streets and some of the best tapas bars in the province. Málaga is a joy to stroll around, with the church spires jostle for space with russet-red tiled roofs while the 11th-century Gibralfaro castle sits grandly and provides the best view of all.
Eating just-caught sardines by the sea is one of life’s great simple pleasures, and the beaches either side of Malaga are the perfect place to do it – particularly after a morning at the Picasso and Carmen Thyssen museums. Unlike some Spanish cities, in summer is particularly lively during the Malaga Fair in mid-August, when even the most reserved visitors might find themselves joining the locals for a twirl in the streets.
