The Spanish city of Malaga is the second most important town in Andalusia, as well as being the capital of the Costal de Sol. The famous coastal region of the Iberian Peninsula overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is undoubtedly one of the most touristic areas in Spain thanks to its over 300 days of sunshine a year.
Malaga has a very rugged terrain, and the mountains occupy almost the entire province to the sea. However, it has the best climate in Europe and its fantastic beaches are filled with thousands of tourists. Rich in history, culture and tradition, the city of Malaga has in recent years become one of the largest tourist destinations in Europe. A true paradise for visitors who can relax sunbathing on its famous beaches or visit the city's museums. The most important of which is dedicated to Pablo Picasso, who was born in Malaga in 1881.
Places and distances
Malaga epitomises the complex history of Andalusia in its streets and monuments. It was an important commercial town in Phoenician, Greek and Roman times. Among the most picturesque places to visit, we highlight the following:
- The Alcazaba: today one of the most important attractions. To reach it from the airport, it takes 20 minutes, taking the road N - 340.
- Carmen Thyssen Museum: located in a beautiful Renaissance palace that is 10 km from the Spanish stopover, to cover which takes a quarter of an hour.
- However, it is notably more fascinating to get lost in the alleys and winding streets of the historic centre, and thus discover its rich historical and cultural heritage, its parks and the edifices of the past.

Today Malaga is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city, with one of the most active airports in Europe, the Malaga - Costa del Sol is dedicated to the renowned painter Pablo Picasso.

How to get from Malaga airport - Costa del Sol to the city centre
Connections between the airport and the city are provided by buses and trains. The former are quite cheap and do not require much time to reach the destination. For instance, Line A Express, costs 3 euros. However, it is often the case that you need to change means of transport since buses do not leave you in front your accommodation.
The same goes for trains, which although efficient (they leave every 20 minutes) make the beginning of the holiday quite uncomfortable, especially if you are carrying heavy suitcases.
Public taxis, which are located in Terminal 3 of the arrivals area, are the best option in terms of comfort, especially if you arrive in summer, it is quite difficult to find a free one, given the large influx of people who choose to visit the city of Picasso.
