Modern yet historic, Málaga is a lively city famous for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso.
Get in touch with nature at Burriana Beach and Capistrano Playa. Appreciate the collections at Alcazaba and Museo Interactivo de la Musica. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Malaga: Fundación Cueva de Nerja (in Nerja) and Mirador de San Nicolas (in Granada). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Malaga Cathedral, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Montes de Malaga Natural Park, examine the collection at Astilleros Nereo, and step into the grandiose world of Castillo de Gibralfaro.

Once a village of humble fishermen, Marbella is now one of the most cosmopolitan beach resorts on Spain’s world-famous Costa del Sol, boasting swanky nightclubs, classy hotels, and expensive restaurants.
Relax by the water at Senda Litoral Dunas de Artola and Cabopino Beach. Step out of the city life by going to El Tajo de Ronda and Playa de la Cala Mijas. Change things up with these side-trips from Marbella: Ronda (Museo Lara, Old City, & more). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Marbella Old Town, pause for some serene contemplation at Ermita de Santiago, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Iglesia Mayor de la Encarnacion.
