Malaga City Break

After a short short 2 1/2 hour flight from Leeds Bradford we arrive arrived at Malaga airport, we then had a short 20 minute transfer to the only 5 star hotel in Malaga called Vincci Seleccion Posada del Patio.

Posada del Patio

The rooms were lovely and modern, the hotel has a roof top pool, perfect for relaxing after a busy day sightseeing. It is very centrally located and within easy reach of the main sightseeing spots that Malaga had to offer. After having a look around the hotel and a little look around the area we went for a lovely meal at Los Patios De Beatas know as the love affair of gastronomy and fine wine!

Vincci Malaga 4*

This is a modern hotel with quality accommodation and cutting edge style makes for a luxurious base in Malaga. Situated on the promenade and opposite the beach it’s easy to unwind here. All the attractions of Malaga city are close by too making it a great choice to enjoy both the city and the beach.

Barcelo Malaga 4*

This was my favourite hotel we visited and I would definitely stay here myself when I next visit Malaga. It was located close to the beach and the train station is attached if you wish to travel to somewhere else for the day. Malaga port and the cathedral is within walking distance from the hotel.

MS Maestranza 4*

MS Maestranza

This hotel is very centrally located close to the main attractions that Malaga has to offer, including the beach, the cathedral, Museo Picasso and the Alcazaba Fortress. Some of the rooms also look out on to the bullring as this is close by to the hotel. From the roof top you can look at the fantastic views across Malaga whilst enjoying the sun.

After visiting these hotels we went to have a lovely lunch at Bodegas El Pimpi, they serve great tapas and is lovely to try different things. It is a very traditional Spanish restaurant and you can enjoy local food & wines and, above all, the culture & traditions of southern Spain.

Picasso Museum

Museo Picasso

The Museo Picasso Málaga is a museum in Málaga, this is the city where artist Picasso was born. It opened in 2003 in the Buenavista Palace, and has 285 works donated by members of Picasso’s family. Some of Picasso’s most famous works of art are displayed here, you can have a guide with you if you would like to be talked through Picasso’s work if not you can walk freely through all the different rooms to look at his work.

Cathedral of Malaga

Cathedral of Malaga

This is a beautiful Cathedral in the heart of Malaga, you can walk around it and look at the lovely work inside.

Alcazaba Fortress

La Alcazaba is Malaga’s most important landmark, and overlooks the city from a hilltop inland. It is one of two Moorish fortresses in the city, the other being the Castillo de Gibralfaro, situated above. The Alcazaba is the best-preserved Moorish fortress palace in Spain, it has two walled enclosures. It was formerly connected to the city ramparts which formed a third defensive wall but only two inner walls remain. The first, built around the topography of the hill, completely encloses the second inner area and is dotted with defensive towers.

A fantastic city to visit, lots to see and do and also a lovely beach to relax on if the sightseeing gets a bit too much one day. I will definitely be going back to visit this wonderful city.
