Málaga is one of the most popular destinations in Spain. The capital of Malaga province, the
city is the fifth most populous in the country. Situated in the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula,
it has a surface of 398.25 square kilometres and has about 568,000 inhabitants. Most people live in
the metropolitan area.
Málaga is located in two river valleys, the Guadalhorce and the Guadalmedina, and its
location has had a large influence on the city's geography, history and climate. The territory of the
city is washed by the warm Mediterranean Sea, and the Málaga Mountains protect it from the cold.
As a result, the mild climate and warm temperatures make Malaga a perfect destination for
thousands of tourists. Summer month are the hottest ones here, with a high temperature around 22.8°
C. The coldest season of the year is winter, with temperatures dropping to 13° C. Autumn and
winter in Malaga are usually the rainy seasons with the most precipitation.
When you first arrive in Malaga, you will be captivated and amazed by the city's natural
beauty. The environment here is incredible: it is rich with verdant parks, sparkling sand on the
coastline, a bright turquoise sea, landscaped garden promenades and a gentle seaside. The
ecological value of the nature on the island of 122 hectares is incredible. A large number of animal
species makes this place an excellent getaway for wildlife lovers. One of the most popular
destinations here is the Natural Park Montes de Málaga, which occupies an area of almost 5,000
hectares and contains over 230 plant species and more than 150 types of vertebrates.
Most tourists think of Málaga as just a gateway to the beach resorts of the Costa del Sol.
However, the city is being renovated due to an increase in tourists, a large number of investments
and government development projects. This reinvention is changing the city considerably. Right
now, with the strong efforts of mayor Francisco de la Torre and his innovative vision, the city is
turning into a cultural hub.
Among the city's sights that you should visit (in case you don't want to spend your entire
holiday on the beach with a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other):
Alcazaba fortress - a great mix of of gardens and fountains;
10th-century Gibralfaro castle that stands guard over the coast;
Renaissance cathedral, nicknamed La Manquita ("one-armed woman");
Atarazanas Market - originally built by the Moors as a ship builder's yard. Today it is
the most famous market in the city;
Picasso Museum - Malaga's most renowned museum honoring its most famous artist;
- Montes de Malaga - a dream place for hikers and all wildlife lovers. It is located only a few
kilometres from the city centre;
El Tintero - a famous restaurant, located outside of the city in the area of El Palo.
Specializing in local seafood, the place is perfect for romantic evenings and family dinners.
As we just mentioned food, we should say a little more about it. Thanks to the city's
subtropical climate and maritime location, the cuisine of the area is exceptional, with local wine,
popular local jamón and some of the best seafood on the coast - the locals are nicknamed
boquerones (anchovies) because of how much they eat. As in other coastal cities, the city is full of
different bars and restaurants where you can taste local and European food. However, locals are
used to eating late, even after 10 p.m., so be prepared for late dinners if want to really experience
the atmosphere of the city.
