Málaga is a city and a municipality in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, Spain. It is the second most populous city of Andalusia and the sixth largest in the country. This is the southernmost large city in Europe. It lies on the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun) of the Mediterranean Sea, about 100 km (62.14 mi) east of the Strait of Gibraltar and about 130 km (80.78 mi) north of Africa. Málaga's history spans about 2,700 years and is one of the oldest cities in the world. It was founded by the Phoenicians and called Malaka.

Málaga's important cultural infrastructure and the rich artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of it as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture. The internationally acclaimed artist Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were born in Málaga.

The Holy Week celebration and the August Málaga Fair ("Feria de Málaga") are two well-known festivals. During the celebration of the Feria de Málaga in August, the streets are transformed into symbols of Spanish culture and history, with sweet wine, tapas, and live flamenco shows filling the town. The day events consist of live music and dancing, while the night fair is moved to the Recinto Ferial, consisting of restaurants, clubs, and an entire fair ground with rides & games.

The city is served by Málaga Airport - one of the first in Spain and the oldest still in operation. It is the international airport of Andalusia accounting for 85 percent of its international traffic. The airport, connected to the Costa del Sol, has a daily link with twenty cities in Spain and over a hundred cities in Europe.

The main rail station is Málaga María Zambrano which is connected with Madrid Atocha by Talgo 200. On 24 December 2007, the high-speed train AVE came into service, reducing travel time to Madrid to just two and a half hours. The city has two commuter train lines Cercanías and a metro system is under construction.

The A45 road leads north to Antequera and Córdoba. The Autovía A-7 parallels the N-340 road, both leading to Cadiz to the west through the Costa del Sol Occidental and Barcelona to the east through the Costa del Sol Oriental. Empresa Malagueña de Transportes buses are the main form of transport around the city. Málaga's bus station is connected with the city by the bus line number 4, although it is only ten minutes walk to the Alameda from there.
