Málaga Gay Les
Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the world, as it was founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century. It is not surprising that Malaga is a city full of art, where you can enjoy exhibitions dedicated to glass and glass, classic cars, contemporary installations and, of course, the work of Picasso. It also has an excellent climate and extensive beaches, which has made it the preferred destination for Anglo-Saxon and German tourists, with many residents from this area all year round. It is also one of the ports where cruise ships that cross the Mediterranean Sea moor.
The city of Malaga is openly Gay Les Friendly. Its open and cosmopolitan atmosphere makes gays and lesbians feel at home in its streets. You don’t need to be in a “mood” place to behave naturally in public.
