With its vibrant blend of modern metropolis and renaissance architecture, Malaga really is the heart of Costa del Sol.

Not to be overlooked as a gateway to the south of Spain, this old port city is full of character and history – not to mention plenty of Sangria!

Art aficionados won't want to miss out on a visit to Museo Picasso Malaga which holds almost 300 works donated by the Picasso family, while the historic Alcazaba fortification, built on a hill in the centre of town, and the iconic Castillo de Gibralfaro are important parts of the city's history.

You can take tours of the magnificent Cathedral of Malaga, and for an unforgettable experience venture up almost 200 steps to the roof where you can enjoy arguably the best views around.

While Malaga provides easy access to some of the most sought-after holiday spots in the south of Spain, the city itself is one not to be missed.
