Inhabited for more than 2,000 years by different Mediterranean civilizations, Malaga is today a city which combines tradition and modernity. Stretching below the watchful eye of the Castle of Gibralfaro is a lively and bustling city crammed with beautiful corners, such as the Alameda Principal or the promenade of La Farola, in which it is possible to discover neighborhoods of a rich Andalusian flavor, such as El Perchel or La Trinidad. A city whose streets are filled, year after year, with the popular fervor of its residents during Holy Week, declared to be of international tourist interest.
Malaga Cathedral, better known as La Manquita, since one of the towers was never finished. The interior is in the Renaissance style of the 16th century, while the main facade belongs to the 18th century baroque style. Adjacent to the Cathedral is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso the city's famous son and there are several galleries showing his work, including the 16th century Museum of Fine Arts. Today it is an archive of his life and works and open to the public.
