Meet the city where Picasso was born and enjoy its 300 sunny days a year.
Málaga, Art Lovers
In Málaga, there’s a fervent tourist buzz, winter only exists in textbooks, and pescaíto frito (fried fish) is religion. However, if there’s anything that characterises this beautiful Mediterranean town, it’s undoubtedly the culture

Art touches everything in Málaga, starting with its effervescent Festival of Spanish Cinema and continuing with its 28 museums.

You can start with the Picasso Museum, the Pompidou Centre or the Carmen Thyssen Museum and continue to the jewel in the city’s modern art crown, the CAC. With a nose for leading exhibits and artists, the CAC (Malaga’s Centre for Modern Art) has become an international cultural sensation, with memorable exhibits from artists such as Banksy, Kaws and Warhol.

In addition, under the CAC comes MAUS, an open-air street art gallery hailed as Malaga’s Soho that Google introduced to the world. Around it there’s flea markets, hipster locals, rock & roll bars and cultural experiments workshop La Térmica.

But there’s life in Malaga beyond art. Enjoy one of the best sunsets in the Mediterranean on one of its emblematic beaches such as Pedregalejo or Baños del Carmen, where you can see the ancient baths, today converted into a restaurant.

Back to the city, don’t miss one of Spain’s best-preserved and most-treasured Arab castles, the Alcazaba. Later, a go for a stroll through calle Larios, pedestrian-only, full of shops and the heart of Malaga life.

For lovers of heights don’t miss the London Eye’s first-cousin the Mirador Princess ferris wheel, 70 metres high with spacious cabins

A small yet brilliant city that radiates creative spirit.
