Malaga

The Ifergan Collection enables us to perceive history through all our senses. It is one of the most important archaeological private collections in the world, inviting us to travel in time by contemplating pieces from the mythical Mesopotamia to the birth of Islam, through Egypt, Greece, Rome, Persia and Byzantium.

The Museo de Málaga, which was actually constituted in 1973, opened on 12 December 2016 in the impressive Palacio de la Aduana. It has brought together the former Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes (Provincial Museum of Fine Arts) and Museo Arqueológico Provincial. Málaga now joins Almería, Cádiz, Huelva and Jaén in having a "provincial museum" in their respective capital cities; while Seville, Córdoba and Granada have separate fine arts and archaeological museums.

See a selection of excellent excursions from Malaga city, perfect opportunities to see the biggest and best attractions in Andalucia without the hassle of having to organise it yourself.

Andalucia is justifiably famous for its excellent gastronomic scene. Using first-class ingredients grown throughout the region's lands and caught along its extensive coastline, cutting-edge dishes are prepared and presented with the flair and innovation for which Spain's chefs are so famous - although the simple, traditional tapas of cheese, prawns and of course jamon are just as recommendable.

With quick and easy access from Malaga Airport, situated just outside the city, and a busy commercial port, it's no wonder that Malaga is a popular destinations for tourists and travelers alike. The city centre is located little more than 10 minutes walk from the coast where a cool drink awaits visitors at one of the many chiringuitos that line the beaches.
