Malaga See & Do
Andalucia has a wild and vibrant heritage, culminating in a charming style all of its own. A vast area covering almost 90,000km2, it’s a lively mixture of tourist trails, exciting cities, gorgeous secluded whitewashed villages, sandy coves and mountainous backdrops all ready for exploring. Highlights include the freshwater lakes in el Chorro, breathtaking views over the Rhonda gorge, ‘burros’ donkey taxis in Mijas, prehistoric caves in Nerja and long sandy beaches dotting the coast from Cadiz to Nerja. The tapas can be incredible (try the little town of San Roque) and you'll find some of the best Argentinean steakhouses around. You can also cross the border to visit the imposing Rock of Gibraltar and pick up some dirt-cheap tax-free shopping.
Must see attractions in Malaga
The first stop for any visitor to Malaga has to be the incredible Alcazaba that dominates the city’s skyline. Perched on top of the hill, this 11th century palace and fortress is a beautiful, unique structure. Make sure you tour the castle and its information centre after walking the old pathways.
Visit the imposing 16th century Malaga cathedral, erected on the spot where the city's main mosque had stood during eight centuries of Muslim rule. See the sculptures and its impressive old organs; with over 400 pipes they’re still in full working order. Make sure you also visit the cathedral museum for a deeper insight into the building’s past and significance.
With over twenty museums, culture seekers won’t be disappointed. Historians will love the Malaga Museum and the Municipal museum for their excellent collections. The Museo del Vino is also worth a peek and for art lovers, the Picasso Museum displays a vast array of original works by Pablo Picasso. Alternatively, try the Contemporary Art Centre, the Museo de Arte Flamenco or the Picasso birthplace museum.
Wander the beautiful streets and squares of the old town for a feel of everyday Andalucian life, stopping for sherry and tapas in some of the small taverns. For a relaxing stroll, make your way to the Pedro Luís Alonso Gardens. A gorgeous, city-centre haven, take time to relax under the shade of orange trees or cypress hedges and cool off near the water features. The Plaza de la Constitucion holds a beautiful fountain and the Episcopal Palace, fish market and various boutiques are also worth seeing. At night, search out some flamenco or Malaguena, and test out the local wines and cuisine in an open-air restaurant.
Recommended scenic drives from Malaga
Go to Malaga airport to collect your hire car and then head out for a change of scenery. Try the Parque Natural Montes de Malaga for hiking and horseriding in a beautiful setting. Head to Nerja to visit the impressive ancient caves before heading to the beach to relax and soak up some sun. To the East of Malaga Torrox is a lovely little mountainside village that is the perfect choice for some traditional Spanish hospitality, food and tranquillity.
El Chorro is another peaceful haven, complete with mountain bike trails, fresh water lakes and an impressive gorge – there’s even a hair-raising wooden walkway along the gorge edge that you can take with a guide. But be warned; it’s only for the very brave.
Visit Antequera for a walk up the famous La Pena hill, a hike around the el Torcal nature reserve, and an evening barbecue at the wolf park where you can learn more about these fascinating creatures in their natural habitat. Head also to Gibraltar for the day to see the barbary apes on the Rock of Gibraltar and purchase some duty-free alcohol and perfumes.
