“The Costa del Sol’s more exhuberant city” says the Independent telling us its far more than just a gateway to the beaches. It’s actually a haven for Picasso fans as you’ll find a Picasso museum and the painter’s childhood home which is open to the public. History buffs will be happy to know there’s an 11th century fortress and those seeking the great weather in Andalusia, have certainly come to the right place.
Foodie fans should check out the Atarazanas foodmarket with it's beautiful stained glass which is the best place to see local ingredients and pick up a mid-morning snack.
The museums are great when it gets too hot in the middle of the day. Our favourites are the Picasso Museum – we love the 16th century palace that houses the collection. And we are big fans of the Thyssen Museum where we go to see the old masters, the fin-de-siecle works and a selection of paintings reflecting the region’s folklore and traditions. The Museum of Glass and Crystal is a little gem tucked away in the back streets in a restored 18th century house. While the old English Cemetary founded in 1831 surprises with it's peaceful, monumental gardens
The newest element to the city - the regenerated harbour area with bars and restaurants known as Muelle Uno – is a good spot to explore by day or by night. While the Malagueta Beach at just over a kilometre long is a wonderful place to stroll, swim, play and have a drink in one of the many beach bars and cafes.
If you are travelling at Easter, you’ll be spoiled for entertainment. The Malaguenos put on a very vibrant Holy Week. The actor Antonio Banderas is always back home for Semana Santa so if you think you see a lookalike leading a procession, it might actually be him. If you are visiting the city in high season, the Telegraph recommends the Fiestas del Carmen on July 16 and Malaga Fair from 17-24 August.
