Favourite Cities and Hotels in Spain

Lodged in the southern fringe of Spain, Malaga's immediate appeal is twofold: first, as a city with a high degree of culture, architecture and history to share and second, as a coastal gem that refreshingly, isn't shrewdly dedicated to cater solely to beach-hungry package holiday tourists. While the Costa del Sol is riddled with hotel and resort-lined stretches of shore that welcome the sun-worshipping masses, Malaga thankfully, offers much more.

When the initial charm of Marbella and Torremolinos wears off, this lively Mediterranean hub is sure to please. Malaga is first and foremost after all, a dynamic little city that just happens to have a most enviable coastal location. From the Pablo Picasso Museum to the dramatic Alcazaba, historic harbour and brilliant Plaza de Toros, there's a lot to see and do. Malaga has every angle of the culinary spectrum covered as well, from a simple dish of freshly-grilled sardines on the beach to more elaborate al fresco dining in the heart of the city.

    Memorable Malaga

    Nestled in the southern snippet of Spain is Malaga, a treasure-trove of attractions and the birthplace of the one and only Pablo Picasso. Kooky art aside, this town offers the perfect mix of old and new. Although popular with British sun-seekers and ex-pats, it’s far from a ‘little England’ and should be marked down as one of Spain’s lesser-known greats. ... Read more »

    Walk the stone-paved paths of the 14th Century Castillo de Gibralfaro and its 11th Century neighbour, Alcazaba, for a hit of history. Next, try the Museo Interactivo de la Música de Málaga/the Malaga Interactive Music Museum for one of the biggest collections of musical instruments (old and new) in Europe. Like your entertainment with a bit of bite? Swallow your preconceptions and visit Plaza de Toros de la Malagueta to watch some bull versus toreador action.
