A look at the usual lists compiling the best things to do in Málaga makes one thing clear: the capital of the Costa del Sol has long been overlooked in the race for top cultural destinations in Spain.

Add a couple of cliff-top Moorish castles, a pocket-sized Roman Theatre, a winsome little old town full of tapas bars and quirky boutiques, plus a newly primped-up port and fabulous beaches, and this exuberant little city on Spain's stretch of the Med can truly boast it’s got the whole package.
