City of Malaga, Spain
Málaga is a city in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, Spain. It is the second most populous city of Andalusia and the southern half of Spain, and the sixth largest in country. Málaga enjoys a subtropical climate. It has one of the warmest winters of any European city with average temperature above 17.2 °C during the day between the period of December and February. The city is a tourist destination, due mainly to its proximity to the Costa del Sol. Tourists also visit here to see the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and the Museum of Picasso. From Málaga, other cities like Seville, Córdoba, Granada, and Jaén can be reached by train, bus or car.
A popular walk leads up the hill to the Gibralfaro castle, offering views over the city. The castle is next to the Alcazaba, the old Muslim palace, which in turn is next to the inner city of Málaga. You can visit the Roman Theatre, and the old Jewish quarter, the Cathedral, and the Church of Santiago, in mudejar style. A walk takes the Paseo del Parque (a promenade that runs alongside a park with many palm trees and statue) to the harbour, finishing in Calle Larios the main commercial street of the city.
