The birthplace of Pablo Picasso. Costa del Sol “Coast of the Sun” is a region in the south of Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, comprising the coastal towns and communities along the coastline of the Province of Málaga.
Golf courses galore, (around 30 scattered throughout the province) and some said to be the finest in Europe. There are also numerous parks and gardens in the city centre. Strolling through the Málaga Parque area was a very pleasant experience and we were able to visit various nearby monuments such as the fortress, cathedral and Roman theatre.
From the gardens, you will see the imposing Moorish fortress Castillo Gibralfaro, situated in the hills of the city. You can see the viewpoint through the trees and get there by climbing a steep staircase and a wide twisting path up the hillside. Your efforts will be rewarded with stunning views of the city and sea.
The La Alcazaba fortress palace, whose name in Arabic means citadel is one of the city’s most obvious historical monuments. The Roman Theatre dates back to the first century BC, when the Roman Empire was ruled by Caesar Augustus.
