Villa and Apartment Rentals in Malaga, Spain

Jun 18, 2008
Of course the great beaches of nearby Costa del Sol are what have made Malaga one of the most popular regions of Spain. However this city has much more to offer than just seaside and sunshine!

The kings' palace, Alcazaba, which was built starting in 11th century, is Malaga's most important building of the Moorish epoch. In its interior you may visit the very interesting Archaeological Museum.

Worth visiting also, are well the beautiful gardens with several fountains, and the remains of a Roman theatre.

Really close to it there is the Castillo de Gibralfaro. Originally it was palace built probably by Phoenicians, but in 14th century Moorish Caliph Yasuf I, had built over it the fortress which is conserved until today. Two of its towers are connected by ducts with the Alcazaba. In Plaza de la Merced is located the house where was born great painter Pablo Picasso.

Malaga is a cheerful town, and the "locos veranos", the "crazy summers" at its beaches, are famous in all the land. Not only during the summer-season, all the year through you will find an animated nightlife. Going out belongs to an Andalusian's everyday-life like Flamenco music!

Be sure to check out the sights of Malaga. One fantastic way of getting around the city and seeing just what it has to offer is jumping aboard the Official Tour Bus. It's a red double decker open-top bus which stops at various places during your trip and offers a multi-lingual commentary which you can listen to on headphones.

There are many interesting places which you should try to visit during your stay in Malaga. There's the Picasso Museum, which is definitely worth seeing, along with Picasso's birthplace, or Casa Natal, which is not far from the Picasso Museum. Another landmark is Malaga's cathedral. There are also various churches and some excellent museums which are worth a visit if time allows during your stay in Malaga.

The city also offers some fantastic shopping facilities. Not surprisingly, it is a shopaholics paradise. Malaga boasts a selection of designer shops, boutiques, souvenir shops and shopping malls.

After you've shopped until you've dropped, you will no doubt have worked up an appetite - and will need a sit down, too. Fortunately, Malaga has no shortage of places to eat and drink.

The cuisine in Malaga is light, healthy and typically Mediterranean. Shrimps in all variations, roasted or boiled, and Pescaito Frito, fried fish, are among the major attractions. Regional specialities are Chanquetes, very small fishes of the family of anchovies.

Throughout the mountain-ranges close to Malaga, on the other hand, you'll find dishes of game, sausages and the famous "Rabo de Toro a la Rondeņa", bull's tail prepared in the style of the small town Ronda. Vegetarians are able to appreciate the fresh and mature vegetables of the region.

After enjoying your days in Malaga, you will no doubt want to sample some of Malaga's nightlife, too. If music's your thing, then be sure to check out the music bars in the city. There are also venues where you can listen to live music.

Rental properties are easy to find if you search on the Internet. It is best to go self catering for the best cultural experience. Self catering apartments or house rentals direct from the rental properties owner will usually be the most affordable.

Whether you are looking for a long or short term rental, you should be able to find your ideal property in Malaga.
