Málaga is a port city in Andalusia (southern Spain), located on the Costa del Sol of the Mediterranean Sea. With 560,000 inhabitants in 2007, Málaga is the sixth most populated city in Spain and the second one in Andalusia, behind Seville. It has an international airport with connections to the most important European cities, as well as a direct high speed railway line to Madrid.

The climate is mild, with a mean annual temperature around 19C (66F). Typical maximum and minimum temperatures in May are 24 and 17C.

Málaga gathers interesting monuments (a Roman Theatre, an Arabic Alcazaba, a Baroque Cathedral, and a Museum devoted to its most famous painter, Picasso). Moreover, Málaga is surrounded by many touristy villages, some of them located on the coast and famous for their attractive beaches, like Marbella, and some others located in the mountains, like Ronda. All of them share the influence of the Arabic culture, an exquisite cuisine, and beautiful landscapes and sights.
