Hello, malaga

Malaga might not be as popular as other Spanish cities, but a quick visit to the birthplace of Pablo Picasso is enough to win any visitor's heart. With a great mix of ancient history and modern culture, nearly 3.000 hours of sunshine a year, and several kilometres of beach, it's quite easy to see why Malaga has been described as "Ciudad del Paraíso" ("Paradise City").

The Cafes to visit

Ice cream

Casa Mira

Casa Mira is an institution in Málaga and it has the best ice cream in the city according to both Malagueños and every tourist that comes here--the long queues only confirm that. Although they don't have a place to sit, you'll find lots of benches around the Cathedral to enjoy your rich and creamy ice cream. And don't worry about the wait, the staff at Casa Mira are friendly, helpful, and fast.
