All about Malaga

Welcome to Malaga

The city
In Malaga nearly everything is within walking distance, in or around the “Centro Antiguo”.

Wherever you look, you are reminded of the city’s rich heritage – founded in 900 B.C. by Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs.

Malaga’s most famous inhabitant was born at Plaza de la Merced in 1881. Pablo Picasso’s life and work is still present in most places and the citizens of Malaga are proud of their son.

The opening of the Museo Picasso in 2003 was a hit and has made the city grow culturally. Next to the museum, the visitor can find both the Roman theatre and an Arab castle and not far away is the bull fighting ring.

Since 2011, you can visit the Museo Carmen Thyssen Malaga .
The Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection features a rich set of extraordinary coherence, which starts with a series of pieces of old masters, most notably the Santa Marina de Zurbarán, and continues with a series of chapters that establish a strong history of gender who starred in the nineteenth century Spanish painting, with special attention to the Andalusian painting. The romantic landscape, represented by the works of Genaro Villamil and Manuel Barrón Pérez, evolving into the Andalusian genre painting of the Dominguez Becquer and Manuel Cabral Aguado Bejarano. Attention to the most authentic Spanish customs transformed over the nineteenth century: the manners gave way to the precious painting, guided by Maria Fortuny, in the same way that the genre of landscape is developed from Romanticism to Realism. Finally, the works of Darius Regoyos, Joaquin Sorolla, Hermen Anglada I Camarasa, Ignacio Zuloaga Francisco Iturrino or Spanish art exemplify how the end of the century clearly integrated in the international circuit, being the culmination of the rich and extensive tour that draws collection.

CAC with it´s international contemporary art is located on the other side of the old town. The Plaza Episcopal is adjacent to the Cathedral and has occasional exhibitions, often of high quality. Teatro Cervantes offers a wide range of concerts, dance and musicals.


Opening hours
The shops in Malaga are normally open from 10 a.m. To 1.30 p.m. and from 5 p.m. To 9 p.m. on weekdays. There are exceptions. Larger shopping centres and shops stay open all day.

Malaga is in a good location for various day trips along the coast, up to the small mountain villages or to one of the larger Andalucian cities.

It is approximately two hours’ drive from Granada, Córdoba or Seville in a hire car or by bus.

In Granada you must not miss the fabulous Moorish palace Alhambra, the Gothic cathedral and the Arab quarters in the Albaicín.

In Córdoba a walk to the old Jewish quarters and La Mezquita is recommended. In Seville, the capital of Andalucia, you should visit the Santa Cruz and Real Alcázar districts at the heart of the city.

Along the entire Costa del Sol it is easy to take a bus or train to most cities such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Marbella.

Here there are lovely beaches, nice bars and restaurants as well as good opportunities for shopping.

Tips for families are Tivoli World in Benalmádena (www.tivolicostadelsol.com),
Aqualand in Torremolinos (www.aqualand.es/torremolinos)
and Selwo in Estepona (www.selwo.es).

In Puerto Banús you can view the gigantic luxury yachts, enjoy designer name shopping and mix with the rich and famous at the chic bars on the sea front.

There are also yachts, discothèques, bars and restaurants in Puerto Marina in Benalmádena.

Ronda is a picturesque town located on a precipitous limestone cliff. The road leading there from San Pedro de Alcántara on the coast is a dizzy mountain trip.
