The history of Malaga in Spain dates back about 2,800 years, which makes it one of the oldest cities in the world. The preserved archaeology and monuments from the Phoenician, Roman, Arabic, and Christian periods gives the historic center of the city the feel of a living museum. Walking its small streets is a joy to experience.
It is important to note that the painter, Pablo Picasso, was born in Malaga. Another artist in a slightly different field, Antonio Banderas, was also born here.
