The city of Málaga is located on the southern coast of Spain, on the Costa del Sol. This gateway city is bordered by the Mediterranean to the south, and by mountains to the north, and offers something for every visitor.
Málaga is the birthplace of renowned artist Pablo Picasso. Picasso was born in 1861, and his birthplace is open to the public. Nearly 300 of the artist’s works, which came from his heirs’ private collection, are on display at the Picasso Museum.
