About Malaga

In Malaga nearly everything is within walking distance in or around the “Centro Antiguo”. Wherever you look, you are reminded of the city’s rich heritage – founded in 900 B.C. and forged by Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs.

Malaga’s most famous inhabitant, Pablo Picasso, was born at Plaza de la Merced in 1881. Picasso’s life and work is still present in most places and the citizens of Malaga are proud of their son. The opening of the Museo Picasso in 2003 was a hit and has made the city flourish culturally.

Next to the museum, the visitor can find both the Roman theatre, an Arab castle and, not far away, is the bull fighting ring. CAC, with its international contemporary art, is located on the other side of the old town. The Plaza Episcopal is adjacent to the Cathedral and has occasional exhibitions, often of high quality. Teatro Cervantes offers a wide range of concerts, dance and musicals.
