Of course we think Malaga but the great thing is that you don’t have to choose! From Malaga you can easily take the high-speed train (AVE) to Seville. And then of course back to the most beautiful city of Andalusia Malaga, yet we do not want to deprive you of the hotspots of Seville.
Below are some differences, and similarities between the two cities:
- Places of interest: Seville has many historical and cultural attractions, including the Cathedral with the Tower of Giralda, the Alcazar, Plaza de España and the Santa Cruz district. Malaga also has its own historical attractions, such as the Alcazaba, the Gibralfaro Castle, the Cathedral and the Picasso Museum.
- Atmosphere: Seville has a more traditional and atmospheric atmosphere, with narrow streets, historic buildings and a vibrant nightlife. Malaga, on the other hand, has a more relaxed and modern atmosphere, with a lively promenade, beaches and a wide selection of restaurants and bars.
- Local culture: Both cities have a rich local culture, but Seville is known for its flamenco dancing, tapas and the annual Feria de Abril festival. Malaga is known for its sweet wine, the Semana Santa processions and the feria de agosto.
- Proximity to other attractions: Seville is closer to other major tourist attractions in Andalusia, such as Cordoba, Granada and the white villages, while Malaga has better access to the region’s beaches and coastal towns.
In short, both cities have their own unique charm and it depends on your personal preferences and interests which city you like more. If you like a traditional and atmospheric atmosphere with many historical sights, then Seville might be more suitable for you. If you prefer a modern and relaxed atmosphere with access to beaches and a wide range of restaurants and bars, Malaga could be a better fit for your needs.
