Information about flights to Malaga

Cheap flights Malaga

Malaga may lie close to the Costa del Sol but this simultaneously modern and historic city feels a world away. Explore the old core of the port with its unfinished 16th-century cathedral. Take in spectacular views from the ramparts of Gilbrafaro Castle, high on the hill overlooking Malaga. Visit the house where Picasso was born and then explore his work at the Picasso Museum with over 200 works. Visit the museum of the busiest local bullring and then head to the beach and relax.


Attractions

Any itinerary is likely to include some sightseeing in the city's old quarter. Highlights include a trip to the Alcazaba, an extensively restored palace fortress begun in the 11th century. The entrance is next to the Roman amphitheatre. Check out too the cathedral whose domed ceiling soars 40m above the huge colonnaded nave. The cathedral has a museum recording 500 years of sacred art, and if you fancy getting away from the city bustle, head 4km north to the 19th-century botanical gardens.


Arts and culture

In addition to the Picasso Museum, Malaga is also home to 30 other museums and galleries including the Centre for Contemporary Art which is housed in a converted 1930s market. And you may also want to check out the Carmen Thyssen Museum which opened in 2011 and which has a collection spanning from Old Masters to contemporary art. Also popular is the Museum of Popular Arts which is housed in a 17th-century inn and explores everyday urban and rural life.

Malaga has five theatres including the Roman amphitheatre which stages open air performances in the summer. Malaga hosts a number of festivities including the International Jazz Festival, which is held at the beginning of November and the Film Festival which takes place early in March.


Eating and drinking

Malaga offers a wide range of choice when it comes to wining and dining ranging from tapas bars to Michelin-starred restaurants. Given its location, seafood is a speciality. Try a traditional espeto or skewer of sardines cooked over hot coals at a beach bar in the El Palos district, a few kilometres east of the centre. For tapas, head to Calle Larios and for something more upmarket, try either La Moraga Antonio Martin in Plaza Malageuto or Calle Fresca, both run by a Michelin-starred chef.

For something less formal, call in at Antigua Casa de Guardia, the oldest bar in Malaga which dates back to the 1840s and sample a glass of dry Malaga wine.


Nightlife

Malaga has seven cinemas that show both English and Spanish language films and has a club scene that includes some of the best venues in Spain. These are concentrated around Calle Larios, Place de la Constitucion, Calle Granada and Plaza de la Merced. For something a little less frenetic, relax at El Jardin, a beautiful Viennese-style café behind the cathedral, or sample live flamenco at Liceo.


Shopping

Malaga offers a mix of independent shops and designer names. For the latter, head to Marque de Larios. Try Mango, for women's wear and Massimo Duti for men's.

    Generally a nice hotel. The staff are hit and miss, some very friendly and helpful, some less so. The room lacked a few things that would be standard in most 4 star hotels, for example tea and coffee and free bottled water. There is a kettle, but no tea and coffee? The only english channels are the news channels. The pool is disappointing and very small, the photos provided are slightly misleading in my opinion. There are limited loungers and these get taken very early in the day. The hotel is located slightly outside of the centre, but there are plenty if options to get to the centre. I would stay here again, but have stayed in better 4 star hotels in Malaga.
