Nowadays, this fascinating city is one of the most popular destinations for families and couples who want to enjoy a few days on the beach.

This area has the highest points of interest and is mostly visited by tourists; the location cannot get better than this.
One of the most important streets is Larios, as it goes through the financial and commercial zone of the city from north to south. In the city centre you can also visit the Cathedral. It’s open to the public every day of the week; locals call it la manquita (faulty) because it does not have a tower. You should also visit the Alcazaba, a Moorish fortification and an emblem of the city full of history and beauty. We recommend you to visit the Palace of Aduana (customs), the Town Hall, the ruins from 2,000 years ago of the old Teatro Romano or the Atarazanas market. These are just a few of the interesting places that you can visit in Málaga.
If you like art, you should go to the Palacio de Buenavista and visit Picasso’s Museum, where you can admire the artist’s collection with more than 200 pieces of artwork. Also, if you want to visit the house where this painter was born, you can find it near the Plaza de la Merced. There are other museums and parks that are worth visiting, like the Puerta Oscura gardens, the Provincial Museum of Fine Arts, the Málaga park, the Plaza de la Marina, the Gibralfaro Castle and many more.
As you can see, there is no time to get bored in this city on the Costa del Sol. Although, if you prefer to enjoy your day under the sun, there is nothing better than spending the day on the best beach in the city, La Malagueta. This beach is well-known for its soft sand and transparent waters; you will love it!
Any time of the year is perfect to visit this city. Although, if you want to witness one of the most spectacular carnivals you should visit Málaga towards the end of January and the beginning of February. During this time of the year, you will enjoy dances, concerts, large floats parades and fun activities all day long. We definitely recommend visiting Málaga while some of the best city events are taking place. One of them is the Holy Week celebration, where you can witness emotional processions. This celebration is considered of International Tourist Interest. On June 23rd locals celebrate San Juan by burning the "júas" (rag dolls) that are placed on the beach, definitely something you have not seen before. If you are planning on visiting in August you can enjoy the Feria de Málaga (fair) full of fireworks, pilgrimages, music and delicious food.
You must not leave this city without tasting the typical anchovies in vinegar, the fried fish, the grilled sardines, the gazpacho or the ajoblanco (cold soup made of bread, almonds and garlic).
