Malaga is easily one of the most under-rated cities in Spain. It’s often seen as a gateway to other more popular places in Southern Spain and despite having one of Spain’s most popular cities, it’s prettty much used as a transit city.
In all honesty, we’d done the same thing every time we’d flown into Malaga (e.g. this time in Marbella) but thanks to the wonder that is Surprise Trips, we threw all caution to the wind and got to see Malaga properly.
As it turns out, there’s quite a lot going on in Malaga. For instance, did you know this was the birth place of artist, Pablo Picasso (and Antonio Banderas)? Not to mention the site of a Roman Theatre, the centuries old Moorish palace of Alcazaba or the rather impressive Malaga Cathedral. (I’ll point these specific ones out to you in the photos below).
A quick jaunt around the city will very quickly give you more than enough reasons why you need to spend a couple of days here but in the absence of said “quick-jaunt”, I promptly present to you an e-version of that quick jaunt through the city of Malaga! 🙂
