Malaga Airport (AGP) Maps: Important City Districts
Malaga is a large city and has a population of more than 550,000. A typically Spanish city, much of Malaga is based around its busy port, which is set against a magnificent stretch of shoreline and the Mediterranean Sea. The resort is extremely historic, whilst also being full of modern attractions and buildings, including many high-rise beachfront apartment blocks.
The very centre of Malaga features a number of narrow streets and boulevards, often lined with trees and close to many impressive gardens and monuments. Two of the city's main arteries, the Alameda Principal and the Paseo del Parque, are sited along the southern side of the old town neighbourhood, with the nearby Gibralfaro hill dominating much of the area. Other notable roads include the Calle Marqués and the Calle Molina Lario, both of which run northwards, into the centre.
