A city founded a long time ago by the Phoenicians; it rises on the shores of the warm and blue waters of the Mediterranean. Bathed by the intense and hot Andalusian sun, it is a city with a special grace and charm. Its fame on a tourist level comes from its many beaches found on the Costa del Sol. Not in vain, this coast prides itself on having one of the hottest and smoothest climates on the Iberian Peninsula, with a large number of hours of sun per year. However, Malaga also offers lesser known marvels, in the capital as well as in the province, testimony to a rich and ancient history. The city itself is happy and welcoming, with numerous gardens and the Andalusian grace of its architecture with Arabian memories.
