“Ciudad del paraíso” – the paradise city. This is how the Nobel Prize winner for literature, Vicente Aleixandre, described Malaga. A city that vibrates with life and fascinates with its mixture of ancient history, folklore and modern culture. And of course, it is easy to imagine paradise in this harbour city with nearly 3.000 hours of sunshine a year and several kilometres of beach right in the centre.
