Malaga, a great choice for a weekend getaway

Spain is one of the most visited and internationally renowned destinations for tourists year after year thanks, among many other things, to its rich history, varied culture, impressive architecture and enviable climate.

Within Spain, if you are thinking of a short trip, two or three days, Andalusia is likely to be your most viable option for areas such as Seville, Granada or the Costa del Sol.. The latter has achieved in recent years a very important relevance at national and international level, receiving approximately 13 million tourists in 2022. It is therefore not surprising that, over the years, various corners of Andalusia have been singled out for their beauty and uniqueness.
