GRANADA has its Alhambra, Sevilla its palaces and Cordoba the Mezquita.
But Malaga – Andalucia’s second largest city – is usually bypassed by foreigners rushing for their beach holidays on the Costa del Sol.
All the better for those in the know.
For Malaga is a bustling metropolis and its creative scene is finally getting the recognition it deserves.
Now, after the opening of a new gallery and a fabulous new exhibition, it can rightfully claim to be the Andalucian Capital of Art.
As the examples of Bilbao and East London show, art renaissance is the precursor of urban regeneration. Malaga must be next in line.
