+41 attractions

An Andalusian city lying on the coast and famous for both great monuments and beautiful beaches. In summer, they are full of tourists, in winter, when the temperature is also quite high, they encourage walking. The buildings of Malaga are a mixture of various influences and styles from antiquity to the 20th century. The city's symbol is the Arab fortress of Alcazaba, but Malaga is also famous for its connections with one of the most famous painters of the world, Pablo Picasso.

Malaga was founded in the 9th century BC, but it flourished only under Roman rule. From this period, the theater is located on the slopes of the hill on which the Alcazaba stands. This is already an example of another important period in the history of the city - the Arab occupation. The castle was built as an administrative center and the seat of the Arab city authorities. Currently renovated, with magnificent gardens, attracts crowds of tourists. A little further, on the same ridge stands the fourteenth-century Gibralfaro with the former lighthouse.

Arriving in Malaga it is impossible not to notice that the city is associated with art in a special way. Pablo Picasso was born here, and his museum, which presents 280 works from the artist's family collections, attracts thousands of tourists. The Carmen Thyssen Museum also has very valuable collections of paintings by artists associated with Andalusia, while modern art is the domain of Center Pompidou.
