Malaga, birthplace of Pablo Picasso, is the second largest city of Andalusia and unfortunately one that is often missed by sunseekers who head straight to the beach resorts of the Costa del Sol. Its essence is within the area of El Perchel.

Here you´ll find the Cathedral, a mix of styles, begun in 1528 and with a half built tower that gave the building its nickname “La Manquita” (the one-armed one). Also worth visiting is the Picasso Museum, the Fine Arts Museum, which has works by Ribera, Murillo and Zurbaran, as well as some works by Pablo Picasso from his childhood.

Explore as well the vast Alcazaba of Malaga, built between the 8th - 11th centuries. On display here in the Archeological Museum are Phoenician, Roman and Moorish artifacts as well as a remarkable, partially excavated Roman Amphitheatre. Behind the Alcazaba are the ruins of the Castillo de Gribralfaro, a 14th century Moorish style castle.

Suggested day trips to:

Granada

The last stronghold of the Moors, Granada is famed for its exquisite Alhambra, a complex of palaces built around courtyards of flowering trees, pools and fountains. Granada is one of Spain’s national treasures.

Seville

Seville is the capital of Andalusia and has a chequered history having been ruled by the Romans, the Visigoths and the Moors before it was finally reclaimed by the Christians in the 13th century. The city’s character reflects this particularly in the architecture of Moorish, Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque style which can be seen. It´s a compact maze of narrow streets with a fascinating choice of places to visit. The medieval Jewish quarter and the Barrio Santa Cruz are fascinating by day or night with flower-lined streets, houses adorned with exquisite wrought iron and seemingly endless restaurants and taverns.This city, the fourth largest in Spain, still preserves the lushness and sensuality of Al-Andalus. A visit here would require an early start in the morning to make the most of your day.

Ronda and Pueblos Blancos (White Villages)

Ronda is one of the most spectacularly located cities in Spain, and sits on a massive rocky outcrop. It is also one of the Pueblos Blancos (White Villages). The Puente Nuevo or New Bridge, an impressive 18th century construction built over the dramatically steep El Tajo Gorge (over 100 m deep) joins old Ronda with new Ronda. Ronda is considered the spiritual home of bullfighting having one of the country’s oldest bullings, inaugurated in 1785. Other highlights include the old town with its lovely old plaaces of which the Mondragon Palace (now a museum) stands out. It was rebuilt during the Reconquista but still preserves its Moorish essence.

A tour of the other White Villages like Arcos de la Frontera, El Bosque, Ubrique and Grazalema could also be included in this day trip.

Jerez de la Frontera

Capital of sherry and Spanish brandy, Jerez is encircled by vineyards. The city centre is easily visited on foot and among its sights the Cathedral; built on the site of a mosque and El Alcazar; Moorish in style, stand out. Jerez is also famous for being the capital of all things equestrian in Spain and the Real Escuela Andaluza de Arte Ecuestre (Royal School of Equestrian Art) is particularly worth a visit. Try and see one of the weekly Dancing Horses performances usually held on Tuesdays, but also on Thurdays in High Season.
