What to see in Málaga

With excellent weather most of the year, the long beaches of Málaga invite you to spend your days filled with sun and entertainment. In the summer you can try lots of different water sports, and in the winter it’s perfect for taking a pleasant stroll. The streets of the city centre will surprise you with their beautiful architecture, especially the Cathedral, known affectionately as the one-armed lady due to its single tower. Beside Plaza de la Merced you will find the Picasso Museum, rightly located in the city where the painter was born. Málaga also offers a wide variety of events at its cinemas and theatres.
