Section in Malaga
Do & See
Malaga is an excellent base for those looking to take day trips along the coast, up to the small mountain villages, or to one of the larger Andalusian cities. It is approximately a two hours’ drive from Granada, Córdoba, or Seville in a hired car or by bus. When in Granada: don't miss the fabulous Moorish palace Alhambra, the Gothic cathedral, and the Arab quarters in the Albaicín. Córdoba: walk to the old Jewish quarters and La Mezquita to experience this region's rich history. Seville: make sure to visit the Santa Cruz and Real Alcázar districts at the heart of the city. In Puerto Banús, you will view the gigantic luxury yachts, splurge on designer name shopping, and mix with the rich and famous at the chic bars on the sea front. There are also yachts, discothèques, bars and restaurants in Puerto Marina in Benalmádena. Ronda is a picturesque town located on a precipitous limestone cliff. The road leading there from San Pedro de Alcántara on the coast is a dizzy mountain trip.
