The coasts of Málaga are bathed by the Mediterranean waters, while Montes de Málaga provides a natural barrier that protects from the cold, creating a moderate climate thanks to the ocean’s thermoregulating effect. The warmest months are usually July and August, while the coldest, December and February, see average temperatures that range from 13ºC to 22.8ºC. Precipitation falls primarily in autumn and winter.

The city boasts environmentally important natural spaces, such as Desembocadura del Guadalhorce, an essential habitat for a variety of migrating species, and Montes de Málaga Nature Park, although the sun and beach are the main attractions.

Málaga is the fifth largest city in Spain in terms of population.

The city is filled with historical sites like the Alcazaba, one of the most important Muslim fortresses in Andalusia, and the Gibralfaro Castle, where you can enjoy the best views of the city. At the foot of the castle, you’ll find the Roman Theatre and its quarter, which are well worth a stroll. While wandering the streets, you’ll come across sites like the Mercado de las Atarazanas, and monuments such as the Cathedral, with its unfinished right tower.

Málaga is the city where Picasso was born, and his museum is a must-see; you can even visit his family home. In addition, the city houses the Museo Carmen Thyssen; the only Centre Pompidou that exists outside of France; and The Collection of the Russian Museum of Saint Petersburg.

Another stop that can’t be missed is the city’s beach, La Malagueta, and the seaside neighborhood of Pedregalejo, where you can try traditional grilled sardine skewers or simply walk along the port until you reach the lighthouse La Farola, a true symbol of Málaga.

Marqués de Larios, a pedestrian street, is also emblematic of the city. This area and its surrounding streets are the perfect place to taste tapas in establishments that are now legendary.

Getting to Málaga is easy, since it is accessible from the world’s major countries. The Málaga-Costa del Sol International Airport is the main port of entry, with national and international connections. The rail network offers routes to a variety of regions in Spain, with highspeed services to Madrid, Seville, and other Spanish and Andalusian cities.

Málaga is home to one of Spain’s most important ports, where hundreds of tourists disembark cruises to visit the Mediterranean.
