THE CITY OF MALAGA
The bluest skies in Europe
The University of Malaga is located in the city of Malaga, the capital city of the Costa del Sol on the eastern coast of Andalusia. Malaga is the birthplace of Picasso and home to some 500,000 inhabitants. The city has excellent transport infrastructure: a high-speed train, a seaport, a recently improved motorway network and international airport (AGP), the third busiest in Spain, with flights to Madrid taking just 45 minutes and to London or Paris, just 2 ½ hours. The bus and underground transport systems, together with bike lanes, make getting around the city easy.
Malaga is well known for its high quality of life, beautiful beaches and warm and welcoming people. Being the sunniest place in Europe and having such a warm climate means that outdoor life can be enjoyed during the day and night, even in winter. It is a safe city, with excellent public health services and a strong international flavour, thanks to the large community of British, German, Russian, Dutch and Finns who have chosen to take up residence in the province. Moreover, living in Malaga is cheap compared to most European cities.
