A Malaga timeshare puts you on the southern end of Spain’s beautiful Costa del Sol (Sun Coast) in a city that is a colorful blend of historic and modern attractions. From ancient fortresses to golden beaches, world-class golf, waterparks and glittering nightlife to the birthplace of Picasso, you’ll have so much fun in Malaga that you’ll want to come back every year.
Among Malaga’s many fascinating attractions are its historic monuments. You can’t miss La Alcazaba, the 8th-century Moorish palace that overlooks the entire city. Wander around the maze of medieval walls and gardens and enjoy breathtaking views of the area.
Just below La Alcazaba is the 1st century Roman Theatre. Walk along the ancient tiers and stand on the stage. Step inside the visitor’s center and see artifacts taken from the site.
Another striking landmark is the Castillo de Gibralfaro, a 14th-century fortress with towers and ramparts, from where you can view Malaga, its port and historic bullring, which still hosts bullfights during the city’s festivals.
Don’t miss a visit to the majestic Malaga Cathedral to admire its beautiful architecture, ornate interior, artworks and spectacular views from the top.
Malaga is home to several impressive museums, of which the Museo Picasso Málaga is most prominent. A guided tour takes you through the life of the famous Picasso artist, where you can see how his paintings developed from childhood artwork to adult masterpieces. To see the birthplace of Picasso, visit the Museo Natal, which contains personal belongings of the artist and his family.
The Automobile and Fashion Museum offers something for everyone as its collections take you on a journey through history where restored vintage cars are paired alongside fashion ensembles that once accompanied the same era of each car.
No vacation to your Malaga timeshare is complete without a visit to the Ataranzas Market. Recognized by its magnificent stained-glass window at the entrance, this colorful market offers a wide selection of produce, meats and fish. You can also enjoy tapas and a glass of wine or beer here.
