Couples who decide to hold their wedding at the Barceló Málaga will enjoy a location that counts the friendliness of its people, an incredible climate and its beaches among its main attractions. But Malaga has far more to offer to its visitors. Its museums, feria (local festival) and natural environment are further highlights of this incredible city.
If Malaga is famous for one thing it is its weather. Temperatures range between 22.8ºC (max.) and 13ºC (min.); July and August are the warmest months and December and February the coldest. Rain is scarce and usually falls in autumn and winter, making it the perfect destination for spring and summer weddings.
If you decide to extend your stay at the hotel, you can enjoy the wide range of cultural attractions available in the city, and visit some of its most famous spaces such as the historical centre and cathedral.
Wandering around the historical centre of Malaga is the best way of discovering its past, present and future. Enjoying a glass of wine in El Pimpi, visiting the Roman amphitheatre and exploring the picturesque Pasaje de Chinitas are just a tiny example of the many things to enjoy.
Malaga was the birthplace of Picasso and a visit to his museum is compulsory when in the city. In the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga, visitors can view both the Thyssen collection and temporary exhibitions, while the Centre Pompidou has “The Collection”, a permanent exhibition of 20th and 21st century art.
Located in the Plaza del Obispo, Malaga cathedral is known locally as La Manquita (“the one-armed”) because its south tower was never completed. The sculpture work in the choir is particularly noteworthy; there are 42 sculptures by Pedro de Mena, while the two organs are truly exceptional work of the 17th century and have over 4,000 pipes.
