Málaga is a seaside city with over 3,000 years of history. Walking its streets will transport you back to the past, from its Phoenician, Roman and Muslim roots to the beautiful, warm and cosmopolitan city it is today.
The birthplace of Picasso, it has become one of Europe’s true major museum cities. It houses over thirty first-rate museums, including the prestigious Málaga Museum, Centre Pompidou Málaga, Russian State Museum Collection St Petersburg, Carmen Thyssen Museum, and of course, the house museum of Málaga’s native genius and the Picasso Museum.
The works of the international avant-garde and the packed calendar of cultural and sporting events make it a lively destination all year round.
