Malaga Attractions

Malaga is the largest city on Spain's Costa del Sol. Despite having several important attractions, such as art galleries and a Moorish castle, most tourists head straight for the Costa's resorts and miss out Malaga altogether.

The city is probably most famous for the fact that Pablo Picasso was born here in October 1881. Picasso's birthplace in the busy Plaza de la Merced contains a collection of his personal effects, and a new museum dedicated to the artist was opened in 2003. The Contemporary Arts Centre (CAC), which opened in the same year, is another important museum in the city. It contains modern works by the likes of Roy Lichtenstein and Gerhard Richter.

Malaga's cathedral has a rather lopsided look as only one of its two planned bell towers was ever completed. Built on the site of a mosque, the cathedral boasts an ornate domed ceiling and beautifully carved choir stalls.

The Moorish castle of Gibralfaro, constructed in the early 14th century, stands on a hill overlooking Malaga. Below the Gibralfaro is the Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress that mostly dates from the 11th century. This important Malaga landmark is situated next to the recently uncovered ruins of a Roman amphitheatre.
