Málaga Travel Guide: 940 reviews and 2,500 photos

Capital of the Costa del sol

After living in Malaga for four years, I do not have many photos (apart of the typical ones of partying lol, typical university times hehehe and as you can imagine they are banned here). Even if I studied tourism I was an expert in being guide in other cities in Spain, and for a while I did not knew much about the city where I was living.

But Malaga has an interesting cathedral and churches, some interesting museums, specially now that the new Picasso Museum has been open, and a great night life, or at least It used to be….

The best is the feria on the 2nd or 3rd week of august


Quizás porque mi niñez sigue jugando en tu playa
y escondido tras las cañas duerme mi primer amor,
llevo tu luz y tu olor por dondequiera que vaya,
y amontonado en tu arena guardo amor, juegos y penas

Yo que en la piel tengo el sabor amargo del llanto eterno
que han vertido en tí cien pueblos, de Algeciras a Estambul,
para que pintes de azul sus largas noches de invierno.
A fuerza de desventuras tu alma es profunda y oscura.

A tus atardeceres rojos se acostumbraron mis ojos
como el recodo al camino. Soy cantor, soy embustero,
me gusta el juego y el vino, tengo alma de marinero.

¡Qué le voy a hacer si yo nací en el Mediterráneo...!

    Thanks you so much for the great information on this city. We stop here for only one day as part of a cruise to USA. We hope to see a lot, though.

    Don't waste your time and money if you really enjoy food. The food is RUBBISH!!!!!! we ordered fish and lamb chops. Fish bone dry and tastles, lamb chops were overcooked that it was impossible to eat them. I guess Banderas has no idea what is good food.
