Travel Tips from people who've been to Malaga
Málaga (Andalucía, España) It's a southern city of Spain in Andalucia. It has good beaches and some places to visit. And it also is Picasso's birth place, so there're something about Picasso. - Sightseeing 1. Alcazaba (Fortress) It's a Moorish fortress on the mountain, so it has a great view. You can find the entrance near the Teatro Romano(Roman Theatre). The Entrance Fee is really cheap. If you have a student card, you can get in with just 0,60€ ; unless, you have to pay about 3 €, but still it's not expensive for its good sight. Beautiful Fortress with pretty good garden. 2. Catedral de Malaga It's a beautiful cathedral in the centre of the city. It has a nick name 'Manquita' that means a man who doesn't have an arm(in Spanish 'manco'), because normally it has to have two tower, but because of the financial problem, it has only one tower. You can visit the museum in the Cathedral. The Entrance to Cathedral costs about 3€. 3. Museum of Picasso Because Malaga is Picasso's Birthplace, there are many things about him, and this museum is one of them. If you're interested in his painting, it would be good to visit. On every last sunday of each month, the entrance is free. 4. Castillo de Gibralfaro(Fortress Gibralfaro) It's on the top of the mountain, so if you're going to visit there, you can take a walk but also you can take a lift. Visiting there by walk takes much time and energy. It has a magnific view. You can see whole Malaga, and also Plaza de Toro(Bull fight ring).  The entrance fee is same as Alcazaba. Every Sunday, after 2:00 the entrance is free.

PLEASE! don`t stay in Melting Pot hostel in Malaga! THE worst I have seen... receptionists are ok BUT they "serve" old (really green) bread for breakfast, (which is a joke because you are only allowed to get 2 slices of bread and some jam, butter, old coffee), it seems to be ok to smoke behind front desk while working, the living room/ bar is full of smoke too :( There is just one normal bathroom, the rest is just small and disgusting, there is three computers but just 1 of them is really working (nobody knows how to turn on the rest) and my laptop could not connect to their WiFi (but it might be my fault...), the lockers are not in the rooms but in the corridor (about 8?, ok might be 10 but some are broken) so if you check-in late I can imagine there is none for you left) and if you rent a towel (1 or 2 euro) check if they didn`t use it to clean the floor before - mine was dirty and old :(((( ...wrrrrrrrr!!!

Whenever we visited Spain we landed in Malaga and drove the rest of the way to Sotogrande (near Gibraltar); the people I worked for in Paris had their second house in Spain. The road between Malaga and Estapona is known locally as the road of death... because the local vehicle sport is known as bullfighting.... a car leaves the long line of cars and drives head on at full speed towards oncoming traffic and at the last minute they try to pull back into the line of traffic if the cars in the line will allow it.... many don't make it. There have been some horrific accidents with cars driving full speed into oncoming trucks... and noone slows down at all! Call it lunacy or extreme sport but it is very dangerous. I didn't really look around Malaga... mostly the airport and going to and from the place.
