Hotels in Malaga spain
One of the leading holiday destinations in Europe, Málaga has an enviable reputation for its very mild winters and sunny climate, and has existed for nearly three millennia. The city is overlooked by two magnificent Moorish castles and is well known for being the birthplace of one of the world's foremost art figures, Pablo Picasso.
The city also has an excellent international reputation for its nightlife, with numerous vibrant venues such the student-oriented Liceo club, the O'Neill´s Irish Pub, and the all-night Vista Andalucía flamenco club.
The Alcazaba of Málaga
Probably the most popular attraction in the city, the Alcazaba of Málaga contains many intriguing Roman ruins and was originally built in the 8th century. However, it was rebuilt in the 11th century, under the instruction of the Sultan of Granada, and still has dozens of towers and some of its original ancient walls.
The Museo Picasso Málaga
For a fascinating insight into the life and works of Spain's most celebrated painter, visit the Museo Picasso Málaga, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2013. The venue, which contains almost 300 paintings by the eminent artist, is also known as the 'Birthplace Museum', and welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
An elaborate Renaissance landmark, work first started on Málaga Cathedral in the early 16th century, although the building was not completed until the late 18th century. The church also has several Baroque-style architectural features, and is adjacent to the charming 15th-century Iglesia del Sagrano church.
The Castillo de Gibralfaro (Castle of Gibralfaro)
Offering splendid panoramic views of the Málaga skyline, the Castillo de Gibralfaro is another formidable sight that is more than 1, 000 years old. The building, which was enlarged later in the Middle Ages, stands at a height of 130 metres above sea level and is part of the Montes de Málaga Natural Park.
