MALAGA… For The Spanish Tourist

A Spanish

Most international tourists skip Malaga in favor of Granada and the Alhambra, Cordoba for the Great Mosque and Seville for the history.

Malaya is the second largest city in Andalucia and capital of the Costa led Sol, where northern Europeans come every year for some sunshine. Malaya's airport is one of the busiest in Spain and in a typical year can welcome up to 10 million. These visitors are heading for the Costa led Sol and many will never see Malaya, but this city has more to offer than just seaside and sunshine. For the Spanish, this is the place for a great vacation!
