Both Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas were born in Malaga, a city on the Costa del Sol.
There are already local Pompidou Centers and 300 sunny days per year here, but these things just scratch the surface of what is conceivable. Considering its age – 2800 years – the city is remarkably receptive to the novel. It constructs its own image using all the historical hues while keeping in mind the:
It then calmly puts it on the wall and leads a contemporary life.
The most archetypal region of Spain is Andalusia, which has flamenco, gazpacho, bullfighting, and extended lunch breaks during your free tour Malaga. There is a sense of freedom and lightness in this place, and the inhabitants don’t wear headgear. People live behind closed window shutters here, even in the winter, to have a respite from the relentless sunbathing. And yes, everything you heard about mañana is true.
The bus is the most often used form of transportation. There are over 50 bus lines in the city. You may view the timetable on this website by keying in the station and direction that interest you. While it may be used by many individuals at once, each trip will be deducted from the price of the 10-trip ticket, which costs €8.
The year-round temperature is pleasant. If swimming in the water is part of your itinerary, think about traveling in late summer or early fall. Malaga, with an alleged “300 sunny days a year” and an average winter temperature of 16 to 18 degrees, is the ideal destination if your objective is to escape winter and snow into a bright spring. You may sunbathe here all year round, although it is more pleasant to walk around the city and drive across Andalusia in the winter.
Due to its location near the sea and rugged terrain, the city offers a comfortable climate with few temperature changes. The inhabitants of Malaga can tolerate the high temperatures far better than those of Seville and Granada, which are adjacent towns where many people are unclear about where to get refuge from the heat.
Several museums provide free entrance on Sundays. The tourist information office, Oficina de Información Turstica de Málaga, has a list with the precise times of free openings for the time of your arrival. All of these offices’ addresses are listed here.
If you shop at local markets closer to closing time (except for the major one, which is for visitors), you can save money on fresh seafood. The leftovers are being sold by merchants.
Almonds grow in this region, which means they are fresh and tasty here. But it is better to buy it not from street vendors at €3 per 100 grams in a bag, but in the same place – at any market away from the center, for €2 per pound. The same advice applies to fruits.
If sports and jogging are important to you, sit closer to the embankment. There is an “Antonio Banderas trail” and organized places with outdoor exercise equipment. In the city itself, there is practically no such thing as “stadiums” or “big park” – you have to run through the streets.
