With its fortunate location at the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun), Málaga enjoys a lot of sunshine and mild winters and gives the city a maritime atmosphere. It is one of the oldest cities in the world, dating back to about 770 BC when the Phoenicians founded the city with the former name Malaka. Roman and Muslim influences can also be seen in this Andalusian city with several palaces, an ancient cathedral or the Gibralfaro castle as their legacy.
Not to forget Pablo Picasso, who was born in Málaga! There is a compelling museum dedicated to this very famous son of the city, with a large collection of his works. With a lot of leisure and cultural activities, Málaga is absolutely worth a visit and its good location offers trips around Andalusia or even Africa, which is only about 130km south of Málaga.
