Malaga is starting to become known as a ‘museum city’ around the world. The British newspaper The Telegraph has included the city in its top 10 cultural holidays in Spain.
Art in Malaga is tenth on the list drawn up by the publication’s experts in an article that recommends cultural holiday destinations in Spain for 2015.
The text highlights the opening of the Pompidou centre offshoot in the waterfront cube in Muelle Uno, as well as the St Petersburg State Russian Museum collection (due to open later this year in the Tabacalera building) and the Museum of Malaga soon to open in the Aduana palace.
“Together with the Picasso and Carmen Thyssen museums, not to mention the city’s substantial Roman and Arab heritage, Malaga is now packing a considerable cultural punch,” reads the article published last week in the Telegraph’s online Travel section.
A link to the report was shared on Saturday by the mayor of Malaga Francisco de la Torre via his Twitter account.
Malaga’s Soho district also found its way into the article.
“Over the last decade, the Contemporary Art Centre has been attracting artists to the adjoining area near the port, which has been renamed Soho and is now a creative hub with dramatic street art at very turn,” continues the report. The Telegraph’s experts then go on to recommend taking a walking tour with We Love Malaga and opening the night in the “chic” Room Mate Lola hotel.
Ahead of Malaga in the Telegraph’s cultural top ten are the prehistoric caves of Cantabria, the Pre-Romanesque architecture of Asturias and the Dalí triangle on the Costa Brava.
The list continues with the Cap Roig and Mallorca Chopin music festivals as well as the general highlights of Andalucía, a tour that would take in Seville, Cordoba and Granada. Exploring Extremadura, a journey across Castile and the gardens of Madrid and Segovia complete the list of recommendations.
