Malaga, the gateway to the Pyrenees, is a unique destination for tourists. For one thing, it is not like any other tourist spot in the world. Yes, there are lots of world-famous beaches here like those in Miami, Florida, or even in Ibiza, Spain, but they are all different from the Spanish beaches that draw thousands of vacationers every year. Here, the culture, history, and wildlife remain unspoiled and are unhampered by modern civilization.
In this multicultural haven, the natives still live by the traditions they have been using for centuries. This means that the streets are still named the “qi” or “spirit” paths, while houses are still designed according to the Chinese calendar and architecture. And the medieval town center, which is made up of more than 150 little shops selling everything from fresh seafood to handicrafts, is a sight to behold. It’s truly something to see in the Balearic Islands.
Tourists will find that the Malaga apartments for rent have a unique mix of traditional Balearic furniture and modern amenities. This is because the town has preserved its cobbled streets and many old buildings that date back to the 13th century. The “balearic feel” that visitors get when walking along the cobbled streets is made all the more impressive by the town’s tapas bars, restaurants, and souvenir shops. As tourists enter through the gates, they will be greeted warmly, with flower leis, and will be shown to their room by their friendly bed fellows.
The medieval town of Malaga, which is located to the south of the city, also draws tourists who are interested in exploring the rich Mayan heritage. There is an exciting museum located within the historic center as well as a fantastic Mayan villa called Granada that tourists can rent for a comfortable stay during their stay in Malaga. The two historic areas make for an interesting mix of culture and history.
A few miles from Malaga, there lies firmly within the tourist belt a small yet intriguing city known as Las Palmas de Granada. This quaint little town is home to a number of interesting sights, including the famous Cathedral of Palms and the Basilica of San Juan de Las Palmas. These two churches alone account for more than half a million tourist visits annually! There are many other activities tourists can participate in, but these two are among the most popular.
The best part about Malaga for tourists is the fact that it is very accessible from the rest of Spain. There are many different international flights to take customers to this amazing city each year. In addition, there are many local flights available from various parts of the world that fly into Spain. Malaga, which used to be a part of the Roman Empire, has much in common with other cities in the area in terms of old architecture and local festivals. Malaga also boasts a rich history and is a fascinating place to visit.
