Destinations / Dejection agreeable / Malaga City

Queen of Andalucia, Malaga is a marvellous city on Spain's southern coast. Gateway to the whole romantic region of Andalucia, Malaga is the starting point to explore the most well known and best loved coastline in the whole country. 

Considered the capital of Costa del Sol, there is easy access to Nerja to the east, or onwards to Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella to the west. Some of the coastal highlights include fashionable Puerto Marina, theme park Tivoli World, Selwo safari park and the local market at Arroyo de la Miel.Malaga is also the tee off (pardon the terrible pun!) to some world class golf courses in what is frequently dubbed "Costa del Golf".

Malaga city was once a little down at heel; however, a total refurbishment has resulted in having the gloss restored and the gleaming, sparkling city rejuvenated and brought to life. Pablo Picasso is immortalised in Museo Pablo Picasso (est. 2003), and one of the world's greatest artists has a fitting showcase for an incredible body of work. His birthplace now rightly pays him homage. Another of Malaga's famous sons is Hollywood star, Antonio Banderas and he is a frequent visitor to the city.

Malaga is one of the Mediterranean's busiest seaports and the half million plus inhabitants are some of the biggest consumers of fish in the country. The famous "pescaito frito" (tiny fried fish) are eaten in vast quantities as are traditional tapas and all washed down with a chilled San Miguel or more refined glass of Fino. The city has a superb selection of restaurants from Michelin starred to "teterias" (Moorish tea rooms) to "chiringuitos" (beachside shacks selling drinks and snacks).

Although Malaga suffered a lot of structural damage in the Spanish Civil War, there is still evidence of Moorish occupation. The dramatic Parador (top quality hotel) overlooking the city was once a Moorish castle of great importance. Other landmarks include the beautiful Baroque Cathedral, known locally as "La Manquita", the Roman Theatre, Church of Santiago in mudejar style, Old Jewish Quarter and the lovely Alameda Gardens. The main square, Plaza de la Constitucion, is close to the chic pedestrianised shopping street, Calle Marques de Larios with designer stores, trendy boutiques and open air coffee houses.In typical Mediterranean style, there is a lively cafe culture in Malaga and a great fondness for fiestas and carnival. The most striking and notable festival is held at Semana Santa (Holy Week) when enormously solemn religious processions take over the city. The Feria de Malaga in August is also celebrated with gusto and, host to jazz festivals and film festivals, the hugely popular Teatro Cervantes is a fine music and theatre venue. Malaga will never lose is appeal.

The city is far too sophisticated and exciting to be overlooked. A few days of exploration are richly rewarding. Enjoy.
