Modern yet historic, Málaga is a lively city famous for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso.
Visiting Riding Fun In The Sun and Climbing Tours will get you outdoors. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Waterskiing & Jetskiing and Wine Tours & Tastings. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Malaga: Playa La Carihuela (in Torremolinos) and Pileta Caves (Cueva de la Pileta) (in Benaojan). There's lots more to do: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, get great views at Mirador del Gibralfaro, take in the spiritual surroundings of Iglesia de Los Martires, and admire the masterpieces at CAC Malaga Contemporary Art Center.
