Malaga is the second largest city in Andalusia. It is the gateway to the Costa del Sol (sun coast).
Malaga was founded by the Phoenicians and inhabited by the Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Iberia. The city's most famous sons are Picasso and Antonio Bandera. Malaga was of great importance among the Moors. Interesting historical remains in and around the city attest to this great past. In addition, there is the scenic beauty of the province, beautiful beaches as well as wildly romantic mountain ranges and the many picturesque towns. The old town has been and is being restored to a large-scale master plan and is increasingly becoming a tourist attraction, with Malaga remaining a typical Spanish city. Malaga is a museum city with over 35 museums and new ones are constantly being added. It is the city in Spain with the most museums. A cultural highlight is the Semana Santa at Easter and the Feria de Augusto in August, to which millions flock every year. A culinary highlight is an extensive tapas tour through the old town.
