Malaga Guide

The Spanish city of Malaga is located in the Andalusia region of southern Spain, and is on the Costa del Sol (the Coast of the Sun). The city lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is around 100 km to the east of the Strait of Gibralta and around 130 km from the coast of north Africa Many tourists are drawn to the city, and its surrounding area, because of its subtropical climate which is characterised by hot and sunny summers and mild winters. The famous Spanish artist Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, and so was the Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabriol and actor Antonio Banderas. The city is home to a number of monuments including the Alcazeba Arab citadel and is also home to the religious processions which form part of Malaga's Easter Week of celebrations, which have been declared a Festival of Tourist Interest.

Located high on a hill above the city is the parador which is located in the Gibralfaro Castle.
