Top Answers About Málaga, Spain

What are your three best things about Malaga, Spain?

Warm weather all the year (since March you can go to the beach), the food (cheap and delicious: fried fish or pescaito frito, porra, gazpacho, paella, coquinas, gambas, ensalada de pipirrana, etc) and the nice things to see (Alcazaba, Picasso House, villages like Mijas, Marbella, Nerja, Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Ronda or Frigiliana)

Is it better to live in an economically strong place without great weather and have a condo in an economically weaker place with great weather or to live in an economically weaker place with great weather all year round?

If I may, let me rephrase your question: Where would you rather live IF YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A JOB...

The economy matters if you can't find a decent job. If you can find one that you love in either place, live where you have the best quality of life.

So yes, move to Barcelona :)

What are some recommendations for interesting places to visit in Malaga, Spain in February?

Grab an afternoon beer or wine on the Malagueta
via La Malagueta

Have a coffee on the AC Hotel Balcony
via Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Catch a Málaga football (soccer) match

Catch a flamenco show at vino mio or a tango show at el Jardin, by the cathedral.

Take a trip out to El Chorro and hike Sierra de la Huma

A day trip to Morocco is within reason, or a little closer you find Gibraltar

If you have a car you could do a beach bbq at the pits at Peñon del Cuervo, I've heard that you need to reserve those pits ahead of time, but there are some open pits up in Parque Los Lagrillos that have a beautiful view of the city.

Arte y Sana, Cerveza con Arte and Rincon Cervecero are all recommendable craft beer establishments and if wine is more your thing, Vinoteca in Calle Beatas 43 is your stop (a bit pricy but totally worth it).

Take a trip up to Mijas, it's a pretty unique place. And/or visit the carmen Thyssen museum, it supposed to be very good.

Something I intend to do very soon is check out the MicroTeatroMálaga, a theatre experience where each show is just 15 minutes long (in my opinion the max enjoyable duration of theatre), they have a website and a different show every month.

Lastly don't forget to make a stop for churros at casa aranda and check out Málaga's oldest bar on Alemeda Principal where they serve malaga sweet wine straight from the barrel.

I would have gotten some more pictures but my internet is painfully slow right now.

Disclaimer: I live in Málaga, Casa Aranda is my landlord, I don't eat there, but it seems like everyone does. I don't recommend it because of any kickbacks, but because people seem to like deep-fried doughy stuff.

What city in Spain has the most English speaking people per capita?

The whole Costa del Sol (Malaga province) has a high concentration of English speaking residents and tourists (not only Marbella). You can easily spend your whole life here without speaking one word of Spanish. In fact, in many bars and restaurants on the coast, you'll probably be better understood in English than in Spanish, as many waiters do not even speak Spanish. What possibly differs Marbella from other towns on the coast is that Marbella is more "city-like" and slightly bigger, and has attracted more expat workers and entrepreneurs, whereas in Fuengirola, Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Mijas and other smaller towns, you get the impression that the foreigners are dominantly tourists or elderly pensioners. Nonetheless, proportionally it is probably Mijas that has the biggest number of foreigners (almost 50%), of which almost one half are British.

What are the best hotels in Malaga, Spain?

There are in fact several quality, and luxurious hotels in Malaga and surrounding Costa del Sol. If you want the very best, I would recommend the following 5 star luxury hotels:
Puente Romano Hotel
Hotel Villa Padierna
Las Dunas Beach Hotel and Spa
Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf and Spa

You want even more luxury and 5 start resorts and spas, discover Marbella, Puerto Banus and the Golden Mile. Or, live a little and rent your very own villa on the Costa del Sol - make sure you are close to the beach though!

What songs do people sing on the streets of Malaga during Feria de Malaga?

If you mean popular/traditional music, people sing (and, more than that, dance) "sevillanas". Originally from Seville (obviously) but they have extended throughout Andalusia (and, partly, through Spain) as one of the most popular varieties of flamenco. Children in Andalusia learn to dance "sevillanas" at school.

Less formal flamenco "rumbas" are also popular.

The traditional flamenco variety of Málaga (specially of the mountain areas) are the very peculiar "verdiales" (and, of course, the "malagueñas"). You can also see them in the Feria, but (overall) they are quite minoritarian.

Is it better to live in an economically strong place without great weather and have a condo in an economically weaker place with great weather or to live in an economically weaker place with great weather all year round?

I live in a place where the culture and economics are better.. by choice.
I live in Portland, OR. The weather is nice now, not so in the last month, or so. It rains all the time.

I could live in California.. in a number of cities. and I'll have to put up with the absence of trees, with hours of my life gone just commuting to get to work, or to school..  They have better economies and higher rates. More densely populated and crazy and sometimes violent people around..

I could also choose to live in Chicago, the big city.. with the worst wind and weather.. both in the summer and worst in winter. I lived there. Chose to live in California. Now I live here.  I like the trees, I like the wildlife, I like to be close to the beach and to the mountain..but the Oregon's economic development?

I think you should think just a bit more about lifestyle and YOUR values, other than just getting a condo.. A mini-condo with a bunch of people you can't stand.. it's not a way of thinking about life.. long term.. 5 years?

Or knowing that you'll have your condo, and better making comfortable, airy and spacious.. for you won't be able to go out that much..'s always a game.. It's you and your own fortune..  Placing yourself well is very important, but more important is to match, your life's plan and being open for opportunity..

What are 4-6 mainstream/popular news magazines in Spain? How do you rank them?

Popular and news magazines aren't compatible terms in Spain. I'm spanish and I can barely think of anything similar to Time. Most of the magazine market is occupied by gossip, fashion and life-style mags. Sports newspapers also have a little of advantage over general press. Flick through the last EBM's research, which lists the most consumed media, and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Datos EGM. Resumen General

Anyway, "El jueves" and "Mongolia" are two satiric news journals quite popular here. If you're looking for a "serious" mag I would say Tiempo. · La web de la revista que sale los miércoles
Bienvenido a Mongolia | Mongolia

What's it like to hike El Camino del Rey?

Are you an experienced climber? Have you done via Ferratas? Then you should already know what you will need, if you answered no, your logistics should be to find an experienced person to take you.

I've done the Camino several times, and the gear doesn't need to be a big deal, I did it with a homemade rig that cost me €25 at the local Decathlon, but I wouldn't bring someone who had never done any climbing, there are great and fearsome heights involved that scare many people.

The hike, one end to the other and back is only a two hours walk, the place is an hours drive from Málaga, and your gear shopping list should be a harness and a ferrata kit (~€100). Or a 6m length of webbing, and 6m length of rope, and two screw gates.

My stream is a minute behind everybody else, so I will not be updating this thread as frequently for fear of spoilers. If someone wants to do it in a comment, feel free. I will update with goals and gifs as I can find them.

Match Events:

3' Pedro trips over his own feet.

7' Good cross by Rakitić, Sanchez clears.

8' Amrabat released, Alba tracks him down, Bravo smothers the eventual shot.


14' Rakitic fouled. Free kick from Messi not on target.

16' Neymar playing with Darder, fouled

26' Messi tries to chest a Jordi Alba cross in, just wide. Impressive control

28' The grass knocks down Neymar, who is doing his best to not stay healthy for more than 45 minutes at a time.

31' Weligton scythes down Pedro in the corner. No yellow.

38' Messi is called offside. He's not - tie goes to the runner, umpire.

41' Good chance as Alba cuts it back, neither Neymar nor Pedro can finish.

43' Again. Messi and Alba leads to low cross that nobody gets on the end of. Turbosquirrel has been great.

45' Half time. I have to write a review of this match for totalBarça. God help me.


49' Malaga pressing, Barcelona panicking. We cleared the ball twice. Twice, I tell you. Xavi is crying.

56' Neymar did a fancy pass. Like in FIFA when you're frustrated and you start doing tricks to make yourself look cool.

57' Rakitic with another good cross. Neymar can't quite get a hold of it under pressure.

61' Bartra heads from a corner, just wide.

63' Rakitic backheels it to his left foot, which wasn't ready for the pass.

69' Douglas allows the referee the privilege of giving him a yellow card.

70' Bravo's save from free kick keeps Douglas from being torn apart by angry cules.

72' Sandro the bull on counterattack, Rosales does his best Douglas impression and gets a yellow.

74' Ray Hudson just called Douglas' debut "nervous." That's generous.

74' Adriano on for Douglas.

78' Bartra cuts out counter with a good tackle

79' Adriano in 10 seconds does more than Douglas did in 60 minutes.

81' Weligton should get a red for hitting Messi, but instead gets a yellow, which should be his second. But hey, who's counting?

84' Bartra almost gets onto two corners. Not quite. Malaga defending is airtight tonight.

  • Malaga's 1-0 defeat in the previous leg at Estadio Dragao was the club's first-ever Champions League loss.

  • Manuel Pellegrini's side has managed just four wins in 14 outings in 2013.

  • The Spanish outfit has never before had to overturn a first-leg away defeat in European competition.

  • Porto, in the knockout rounds for the 10th time, was last at this stage in 2009-10, losing 5-0 at Arsenal having won 2-1 at home.

  • The Portuguese champion has a strong record when winning the first leg at home, though, going through 33 times.

  • Porto's 38 games against Spanish sides has given the club a record of W13 D5 L20. In Spain that record is W5 D2 L11, although the club has won on three of its last six visits, losing only once

Match Thread: Barcelona vs. Malaga, Copa QF First Leg

I didn't want to make this thread, because I need to write a paper and now I'm going to get notifications from all the replies and I'll be distracted, but so it goes. A man must do his duty.

Barca: Pinto, Montoya, Puyol, Mascherano, Adriano, Song, Thiago, Iniesta, Alexis, Messi, Tello

Bench: Valdes, Pique, Alba, Busquets, Xavi, Cesc, Pedro

Malaga: Kameni - Jesus Gamez, Sergio Sanchez, Weligton, Eliseu - Seba Fernandez, Iturra, Buonanotte, Camacho, Portillo - Saviola

Looks like both Isco, Joaquin, and Santa Cruz are all out of the starting 11 for Malaga, which is great news for us. Joaquin was particularly dangerous against us. And no Willy Caballero!

Alves, JDS, and Bartra don't make the squad.

Looks like Tito decided to contradict every single comment I made in the pre-match thread and name a relatively light squad to start with. Pretty surprising to me, Tito's been known for taking every single game seriously, but he seems to be taking this one less so. Let's see if they step up, a draw or loss here could be troublesome. Away goals are particularly dangerous to concede, and with Mascherano and Song in the middle we might get exposed.

Good to see the youngsters getting a chance though, and Adriano back in the lineup.

Streams: English, Spanish

Today is d-day for Málaga.

The current owners were apparently in talks with some Albanian oil tycoons to sell them the club, but they weren't interested. Today is the last day for Málaga to pay the debts it owes Villareal (for the transfer of Santi Cazorla) and Osasuna, as well as the unpaid wages. If they don't pay up in the next few hours, they will lose their Champions League spot and be relegated to Segunda División B (third division in Spain).
