What to visit in Costa del Sol
There are an infinity of attractive tourist attractions to visit in Costa del Sol, among which we highly recommend the following:
- The white towns: There are little towns that faithfully reproduce the rural spirit of the Spanish coasts and those of Malaga are the most representative. They are known as white towns because it is the color that predominates in the houses. Do you know the reason? To reflect the sun’s rays and this dissipate heat. The best known and most beautiful are Estepona, Mijas, Frigiliana, Benahavís, Ojén and Casares. If you want to walk through narrow streets, enjoy houses with wooden windows and balconies decorated with flower pots, sun, nature and a lot of white on the facades, you have to take a tour of these towns.
- Ronda: City located on the top of a beautiful mountain, crossed by a deep gorge (El Tajo) that divides it into two different places. This natural fault separates the new city from the 15th century, from the old town from the time of the Arabs. The New Bridge, which crosses the gorge, and the old bullring are two emblematic places that you should not miss.
- The Alcazaba of Malaga: It is a fortification made up of several buildings, built by the Muslims in the 11th century. It was built as a defensive fortress and is one of the most spectacular architectural complexes in the area and in all of Spain.
- The Estupa of Benalmádena: It is a Tibetan Buddhist building, considered the largest temple of that style in the West. It is a white building, built in 2003, 33 meters high and crowned with a golden cone that can be seen from far away.
- Starlite Festival: It is a cultural festival held in Marbella that brings together the best of international and national music, gastronomy and other attractions typical of a fair. It is celebrated in a natural environment, outdoors, in the quarries of Nagüeles.
- Luna Mora Festival: It is a musical, gastronomic and cultural festival that is celebrated in Guaro, with a great tradition in the area. The beauty of this event is that at night the town lights up with about 20.000 candles that are placed in different shapes.
