MÁLAGA, A TEMPTATION FOR SENSES
Málaga has become a gastronomy destination where one can enjoy anything from traditional Mediterranean dishes to the latest signature cuisine creations, never forgetting our famous tapas.
This is a land of mountains and sea, so our gastronomy offers a wide variety of possibilities alternating fresh fish and seafood with delicious meat dishes and high quality cold meats.
You can not leave without having tried fritura malagueña, our famous sardine espetos or having gone for tapas around town.
“Escribo a la orilla del mar, sobre una terraza adonde
llega el ruido de la espuma. Esta es la dulce Málaga,
llamada bella, de donde son famosas las pasas,
las mujeres y el vino.”
