Walking around, learning interesting things, enjoying oneself and buying interesting stuff. This is what readers of MÁLAGA, SUN AND SHOPPING will be offered in its 160 pages, a thorough review of Costa del Sol’s commercial activity. The first section of this guide, volume nine in the series, is devoted to the province’s commercial centres, with all the information on locations and directions to get there, services, facilities, and opening days and hours.
MÁLAGA, SUN AND SHOPPING has a special chapter on historic districts in the different villages and their commercial life. Thus, to a directory of shops in the hearts of Antequera, Málaga City, Marbella and Nerja, the guide adds useful tourist information on each of these villages: history, population data, roads and ways to get there, and interesting tours.
So, readers are invited to know marvellous Antequera, the village where three quarters of the province’s historical and artistic heritage are located; go sightseeing in Málaga’s capital city (Phoenician Malaka) and see the Alcazaba (an 11th century Moor fortified citadel), the Gibralfaro Castle or the New Picasso Museum, or stroll along Larios street; take a walk around Marbella and visit Guadalmina’s thermal baths, one of its 14 golf courses or the famous “Europe’s Balcony” (a viewpoint affording magnificent views of the Mediterranean); or go to Nerja and see its well-known caves.
This special chapter ends with a discussion of gastronomy, fiestas, natural scenes and business associations in these four villages. All the sections in the guide are generously illustrated with colour photographs.
As a bonus, the guide includes a calendar of the fairs and street markets in Costa del Sol and the province of Málaga.
