Malaga is famous for pristine beaches which are lined with high-rise hotels and upscale resorts. However, the beach is only the beginning for this port city of Costa del Sol. The city center alone is excellent for experiencing Spain’s cultural history – you can see a master’s artwork in the city of his birth at the Picasso Museum. Great views abound in Malaga as well, from the vistas at the peak of Calamorro Mountain – accessible by cable car from the city of Benalmádena – to panoramas at the top of Alcazaba Castle’s tower stairs.
