The province of Málaga is the perfect location from which to discover the rest of the Andalusian destinations. The province is not only the central axis of the region but borders four of its provinces (Cádiz, Seville, Córdoba and Granada). Thanks to this, it is the starting point to make getaways in a very short time to such varied areas as the natural parks of Grazalema and Los Alcornocales, historical cities of Córdoba and Granada or the Costa Tropical. Thus, from the capital of Malaga there are more than a dozen Andalusian tourist destinations that are less than two hours away by car. These are some of them, but if you are going to buy a house in this area do not fail to investigate the myriad possible destinations that this city offers.

CÓRDOBA
It took many years , but after the completion of the Malaga-Córdoba motorway, this wonderful city is today less than two hours' drive from the Costa del Sol. Known especially for its extensive historical legacy and located next to the Guadalquivir river , it has some of the architectural jewels of the old Al-Andalus, such as its Mosque-Cathedral, around which revolves its historic centre, which, in turn, is protected as a World Heritage Site. The Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, the Synagogue, the Julio Romero de Torres Museum, the Roman Bridge or its most emblematic squares – The Tendilla and the Corredera – are some of the must-sees near to the centre.
