Malaga is a big city located to the south of Europe, and some of the activities that can be done here are swimming at the beach, hiking the mountains, visiting the museums and historical places or enjoy the exotic and tasty cuisines at the restaurants. A day or two will not be enough to travel to all of the tourism places in Malaga, so be prepared to spend at least four or five days at this city. The average temperature here is 18 degrees Celsius and the rainfall is usually during the winter.

It is easy to get into Malaga because there is already an international airport built in this city that is built in the year 1919. This airport known as the Malaga Costa Del Sol Airport is one of the oldest Spanish airports built and from only one terminal during the early years, now it has three terminals with the latest one completed in the year 2004. Malaga car hire is a great choice for those who want to rent a car for their travels, but they can also take a taxi or bus to go to the city centre.

Aside from the iconic Albacaza castle located on the hillside of the mountains in Malaga, another historic castle in Malaga will be the Gibralfaro Castle which is also known as Castillo Gibralfaro. Built by the Muslims just like Albacaza but earlier, it is a strategically located castle that is built for defensive reasons. The man behind the making of this castle will be the Muslim leader of the city during that time, Yusuf and he made sure that the castle Gibralfaro and Albacaza is connected so that it is easier to move from one castle to another.

From the top of the towers here, you will be able to see the beautiful port near to the shores of the sea where you will find a lot of boats and yachts parked there. You can also see the beaches and the people there that dot the whole beach as the beaches in Malaga are quite popular during every season. If you are hungry while touring the castle, you can find stalls and even an open air restaurant where you can quench your thirst and fill your tummy with the things being sold there. You can end your journey here by spending your time with your family and friends at the restaurant here that will make you reminiscence of the time when the Muslim still minister the fortress and the city.
