A Malaga trip will have you visiting an extremely exuberant Spanish port city, which benefits from a rich history, the backdrop of the blue Mediterranean and a vibrant modern life.
The city’s center offers a bunch of narrow old streets accompanied by wide boulevards, and you can add some beautiful gardens and monuments to create a more complete picture. Of course this picture wouldn’t really be complete without the mention of fashionable shops and the constant buzz of the cultural life.
The actual historic centre is undergoing constant restoration work and by now most of it has been pedestrianized in order to better preserve it for future generations.
Since we were talking about preserving old things, the Catedral is a wonderfully preserved building that has its start during the 16th century; which in turn was built on the site of an older mosque that was never completed. As a result of this interesting pedigree, the current building is a mishmash of several architectural styles, and simply a great visiting experience.
Malaga is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, and the city celebrates this fact with the Museo Picasso Malaga, which has 204 of Picasso’s works which have been donated or lent by his daughter-in-law and grandson. The Museum however also features Picasso themes temporary exhibitions; however it should be noted that many of the various works have never been seen on public display. They span every phase and influence that Picasso went through or had during his very colourful career.
