Málaga is the largest city in the area and for many only the airport to the Costa del Sol. That is unfortunate, Málaga is more than worth a visit. Luckily a visit to Alhaurín el Grande can be easily combined with visiting Málaga. This bustling port city offers a boulevard, a relaxed car-free old town with plenty of atmospheric squares, various shops and historic buildings such as the Moorish fort Alcazaba and the Castillo de Gibralfaro. Málaga has developed into a museum city with the Picasso museum, a branch of the Center Pompidou, the Museo Carmen Thyssen and a combined car & fashion museum. For wellness experience you should not miss out on a visit to the old center Hammam Al Ándalus!
If you are not fond of driving in a city, Don´t worry. Park your car for free outside the city at Plaza Mayor shopping and get on the train to arrive in 15 minutes at the center of Málaga .
