Malaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol and one of the main tourist capitals in Andalusia. Talking about Malaga means to talk about sun, beaches, tourism, but also about art, Pablo Ruiz Picasso, The International Cinema Festival or its historical center. In its beautiful uld part of the city you will find places such as The Plaza de la Merced, Larios Street or the Alameda, all of them plenty of “bares de tapas”, shops and fun.
The Picasso Museum is located in Buenavista Palace, a historical building, typical of the sixteenth century andalusian architecture in which the renaissance and mudejar styles mix. Inside, over 200 Picasso´s Works (paintings, sculptures, ceramics and prints from all the periods) are permanently exhibited.
COSTA DEL SOL

This friendly fisherman´s village located 50 Km to the East of Málaga has beautiful beaches and a typically andalusian uld city ideal for walking. But it´s most famous place are the caves, called “The Prehistoric Cathedral”. The visit will impress you because of its magnitude and dimensions. The two courts called “Belén” (Bethlehem) and “Culmillo” (Eye Tooth), considered as anterooms, give way to the enormous Prehistoric Cathedral composed of the “Cascada” (falls), “Fantasmas” (ghosts), and “Cataclismo” (cataclysm) rooms, passing through the “Organos” (organs).The remains found inside are from the Paleulithic, Epipaleulithic, Neulithic and Calculithic periods. Paintings correspond to the Auriñacense period, which make us believe that it was occupied by human being 25.000 years B.C., until the first Bronze Period (1.800 years B.C).
