Malaga is undoubtedly one of the most refreshing and interesting cities of recent times. This very special destination offers beaches and a great climate for summer holidays, short breaks or year-round living.

It has an amazing cultural offer. It is full of monuments, museums, concerts, exhibitions... and has unique festivals and traditions, such as Easter Week and the August Fair.

It has a great multicultural atmosphere due to its cruise ships, and a very youthful atmosphere due to its well-known University. It is also a city open to new neighbours because the people of the south are used to tourism and are very hospitable. It has places and activities to enjoy all year round and a well cared for infrastructure of comfort to make you feel luxurious.

A city that looks to the past...

With a great history behind it, Malaga stands out archaeologically. It is essential to visit the Alcazaba, the Cathedral and the Town Hall, among other historic buildings. It is essential to stroll through its large Alameda Park to finish with a "caña and tapas" in the city's modern marina. It is also a delight to stroll along the city's main avenue, Calle Larios, and lose yourself in all the narrow streets around it, taking advantage of the opportunity to go shopping.

However, Malaga is not only a place of monuments. In the last few years the city has been filling up with the latest cultural offerings. In the port itself we find the Pompidou Museum of contemporary art. It is easy to recognise it because the building, although underground, has a famous multicoloured cube on the outside. The Picasso Museum, the Carmen Thyssen Museum are also essential. Today the city is home to some forty museums, to which must be added the private art galleries.

But as well as museums, Malaga has a theatre with a long tradition, the Cervantes Theatre, with a varied programme all year round. In the Soho district, as well as numerous shops and restaurants, there is another important theatre. This is the Soho Theatre of the famous Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas, born in the city and passionate about his homeland.

...and into the future

You can't talk about Malaga without talking about its technology park, TechPark, with more than 600 leading companies in its facilities. Nor can we forget that Google's next cybersecurity headquarters will soon be installed in the city's Paseo de la Farola.

It also has an international airport, Malaga-Costa del Sol AGP, which is the fourth largest in Spain in terms of passenger volume; or the AVE high-speed train that connects Malaga with Madrid in just two and a half hours. The train also connects with other important cities in the south, such as Seville and Cordoba, and in the north, such as Barcelona.

Panoramic Malaga: apartments

The city of Malaga is especially beautiful from the heights. This allows you to enjoy the view of the coastline and the Mediterranean Sea in all its splendour.

Panoramic Malaga: top-roof bars

On the other hand, if there is a city that is growing in its leisure-panoramic offer, it is Malaga. It now enjoys a couple of amazing hotels such as the Only You Hotel, recently opened in the city centre and next to the port; or the beautiful Palacio Miramar in the heart of the Malagueta promenade. Both have impressive terraces where you can enjoy a cocktail at sunset and first class gastronomic offers without having to be a guest.

Other lively terraces in the capital are San Juan, with views of the imposing Cathedral, and the chill-out terrace of the Alcazaba Premium Hotel, where you can admire the city's emblematic Alcazaba in the foreground. Two other places to enjoy a drink, brush the sky and get a bird's eye view are, of course, The Top in Molina Lario and the flirtatious La Terraza de Valeria.

Eating like a king in Malaga

The gastronomic offer in Malaga is infinite. It has restaurants, bars, wine cellars, beach bars, delicatessens... and the fact is that the whole of Andalusia is a culinary feast. There is a wide variety of gastronomic menus in the city. From delicate international cuisine to tasty local cuisine. But, of course, it is a must to try the seafood in a city that fishes every day. Famous is the "pescaito frito" (fried fish), where the boquerones de Málaga called "vitorianos" (anchovies from Malaga) and the grilled sardines called "espetos" (skewered sardines) triumph.

If what you want is a surprise moment of flavours and presentation, then you should opt for the luxurious Michelin-starred restaurant of José Carlos García. It will not leave you indifferent. Located in the marvellous Malaga Marina, its menu boasts a fusion of tradition and innovation that is well-integrated. What's more, you'll be able to enjoy the dishes overlooking the Mediterranean.

As you can see, Malaga has a lot to offer. It is fashionable to come to the warm south of Europe to live and, of course, for teleworking. It is also smart to have a property in which to spend a wonderful holiday on the Costa del Sol; and of course, it is a place to buy a good second home and make it profitable, with resale or rental options. In terms of real estate, Malaga is a destination to take into account.
