Your flights from London to Malaga
Malaga is only a fast and comfortable flight away from London. Malaga has not only a perfect climate, but also a beautiful Mediterranean coastal landscape and a natural harbour. This was just the thing the seafaring Phoenicians were looking for, so they founded the city in 800 B.C., Malaga is therefore even older than Rome. After the wars between Carthage and Rome Malaga became a Roman city.
Malaga, kissed by the sun
The Moors, who integrated Malaga into the Caliphate of Granada for nearly 800 years, were essential for todays look and feel of Malaga. They left behind the city’s most famous monument, the mighty castle Alcazaba. It was a palace as well as a fortress, so the various Kings, Sultans and Caliphs lived in elegant architecture, surrounded by beautiful gardens with an advanced irrigation system unknown to the rest of dark age Europe. The Alcazaba is connected to a second fortress further up the mountain by a walled walkway, the Castillo de Gibralfaro. This made the idea of conquering Malaga nearly impossible. At the feet of the castle complex is the ruin of a Roman amphitheatre, which is also worth a visit.
Malaga – Arts and culture, golfing and the beach
The most famous son of Malaga is the famous artist Pablo Picasso, even though the actor Antonio Banderas is a close second. The city honoured Picasso with a beautiful museum, giving a new insight into his life and his art and displaying more than 200 of his works. His house of birth is a magnet for art-loving travelers. Malaga has a generous amount of other museums, as well, each worth spending some time in. The Museo Carmen Thyssen is specializing in 19th century art. For the fans of traditional Flamenco, the Andalusian music and dance, the Museo de Arte Flamenco is the place to go to get new insights into this culture. Of course you should also enjoy the fine climate and enjoy a lazy day on one of the endless beaches in and around Malaga on the Costa del Sol. Would you rather play a round of golf instead of swimming? Here you have a stroke of luck: there are so many golf courses around Malaga that it is sometimes referred to as the “Costa del Golf”. Enjoy your flight from London to Malaga as much as your stay in this beautiful city.
