Malaga City | 5 Awesome things to do

It’s fair to admit that Malaga City is one of the most overlooked tourist spots in the world as many people only transit via the port city to other more popular destinations around Costa del Sol. But this has changed in the recent past more tourists can now look at Malaga as a treasure trove and a desirable holiday destination.
Talk of sandy beaches, temperate climate all year round, incomparable culinary experience plus sizzling flamenco performance the city has it all not to mention its accessibility and closeness to other amazing towns like Marbella (61 km), Estepona (90 km) and Sotogrande which is about 106 km.

1- Explore the famous Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibralfaro – As long as you’re in for some hiking these two attractions in Malaga will give you a breath-taking view of the city and the Mediterranean Sea. These strategically located medieval are magical whether you visit at night or daytime. Take time to wander through the courtyard and gardens of Alcazaba fortress and later climb the ascent which is a bit steep but totally worth the hassle to have the best viewing point of the whole city. On top of fantastic views and plenty of picturesque points, the history is deep and interesting to read about. Both Gibralfaro and Alcazaba have free entrance on Sundays as from 2 pm.

Picasso Museum

3- Learn more about Picasso at the Picasso Museum – it’s possible you’ve encountered some of Picasso’s work but I bet not close to the range you’ll discover in Picasso Museum. The Museum features the great art of Picasso as he’s a son of Malaga city. Most of the works featured were kept private within his family and includes paintings, ceramics, and sculptures. The audio guide will help you better understand the Picasso’s individual artwork on display as well as his career. The museum is big enough for you to get the whole overview of his work and there are excellently written explanations in each room so you don’t miss a thing.

This is a great place where the tourists and the locals hang around in pubs, bars or on the streets. Worth going off the usual and beaten track to experience lively nightlife as you socialize and learn more about the history of the city directly from the locals.

We had desires to invest in Spain, but the distance has slowed us down. For several months, we were in contact with several real estate agents. The one that gave us the most confidence is The Property Agent owned by Mrs Celeste Alonso. We met an exceptional person through the internet following our research, and I must tell you that we are delighted!

Arrived in Spain in Malaga, she accompanied us for visits to different apartments, and we found a rare pearl thanks to Celeste.  Mr and Mrs Catteau from France

Celeste is the reason we bought our property. Her knowledge of the market and her ability to find gems in the residential real estate sector are second to none.

Jo and I would like to thank Celeste for the very professional service that she gave us when we decided to move from France to La Alcaidesa. She was spot on in understanding our requirements and, when we found the right property,  she ensured that the whole conveyancing process went through very smoothly and quickly. But what impressed us was that, after we moved in, Celeste ensured that we discovered all the local services in the area. This was our 5th house move and we can honestly say that she helped to make this the easiest. Mike & Jo from the UK
