Malaga has undergone a massive transformation in recent years, with consistent investment and strict regulations imposed with regards to heritage.
Once considered the poor cousin of Andalusia’s capital city, Seville, and also not as ‘sexy’ as Granada which has the Alhambra, Malaga now competes successfully for attention, thanks to its profusion of quirky museums, its delightful pedestrianised centre, innovative restaurants and stylish hotels, many featuring trendy rooftop terraces with bar, pool and stunning views. The newly built port area is lined with restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions, while SOHO, a new arty district, is bringing a bohemian edge to the city.
The opening of the Picasso Museum in 2003 triggered the city’s cultural rebirth, and visitors are now flocking to this port city which boasts excellent transport, top-class cuisine and fascinating monuments, from Moorish and Roman times through to modern day – while retaining its authentic Andalucian feel.
Malaga is around a one-hour drive from Casa Torre.
