CAPITAL OF THE COSTA DEL SOL
Malaga is a city steeped in more than 3,000 years of history. Excavations have discovered evidence of the Carthaginians, the Romans and the Moors. As a result, there is a large selection of historical monuments in this city. Malaga’s cathedral is known as La Manquita, meaning “the little one armed lady. Due to the length of time, which it took to build the cathedral, it denotes Renaissance, Baroque and Neo-classical styles.
Close to Malaga cathedral is the Alcazaba, which is a fifteenth century Moorish fort and is one of the most important in the area. The roof of the Alcazabar offers panoramic views of Malaga city and the port. Further on from the Alcazabar is Malaga’s Castle, which stands on Monte de Gibralfaro. At the foot of the hill, Malaga’s ayuntamiento (town hall) is located, next to the city’s museum in the Palacio de la Aduana. In fact, Malaga has so much to offer as a result of its history, that the best way to see it is by open top bus and there are many in the city.
Shaped by the hills, the historic quarters Albaicín and Alhambra founded on its slopes are brimming with steep, narrow streets, beautiful nooks and crannies and breathtaking landscapes and views. The new part of the city is situated on the plain, crisscrossed by the Gran Vía de Colón and Calle de los Reyes Católicos and where you can find the Cathedral surrounded by a bustling network of narrow streets.
Malaga is also well worth a visit during one of its many festivals. The Fiestas here are numerous and each one is celebrated with the vigour that is synonymous with Andalucia. The main Fiesta is the Feria, which takes place in the middle of August.
