Málaga is the second largest city in Andalusia and the sixth in Spain. The capital of the province with the same name has one of the largest Spanish airports, a commercial port and a university. Because of its sunny and mild climate, it is one of the most important tourist destinations in the Iberian Peninsula.
Primarily the nearby beaches of the Costa del Sol, especially the surrounding towns Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Benalmádena make Málaga to one of the most popular tourist attraction in Andalusia.
But not only the beaches and bathing facilities make Málaga a proven destination, also the cultural offers are recommendable. Like many Andalusian towns, the legacy of the Phoenicians, Romans and Moors have a big importance. Historical remains are found both in the city itself, as well as in the nearby area.
Added to the natural beauty of the province join the beautiful beaches on the coast and wildly romantic mountain ranges inland, as well as the picturesque white villages.
