It’s hard to know where to start in Málaga, whose historic heart pulses with frenetic energy. A jewel on the Spanish Costa del Sol, the city is most famous for being the birthplace of Picasso and its up and coming nightlife scene. On one of our Málaga cruises, you’ll discover artistic and cultural highlights such as the Museo Picasso Málaga, which chronicles the artist’s life and features over 200 of his works. There’s also the Centre Pompidou Málaga, which is enough visiting for the striking glass cube exterior alone. Step back into Málaga’s history with a visit to the Alcazaba, a lovingly restored fortress from the Moorish period. Find your way here from the Roman Amphitheatre, from which a winding path leads you up into the creamy stone architecture with its relaxed patios and colourful flowers. Next up on your checklist is the Catedral de Málaga – the Patio de los Naranjos, a fragrant courtyard filled with orange trees, dates back to the 16th-century. And who could visit Málaga without spending the day on the beach. You’re spoilt for choice, but we’d recommend La Caleta, which is just a short walk from the town centre but boasts clean sands and sparkling waters.
