Description:Malaga is the 5th largest city in Spain.  A Moorish history is evident, in particular the Alcazaba fortress and the Gibralfaro castle. The old town has narrow streets surrounding the cathedral and can prove to be an interesting walk. The modern part of town has the bus and railway station and is west of Guadalmedina river.

It has a busy port which keeps employment levels high and therefore tenant demand high throughout the year.  It has a less crowded beach than other parts of the coast as most holidaymakers choose the more built up resorts.  The majority of residents are Spanish but the British population has increased at a greater rate than most other areas.

The university and science park in the Teatinos district is in the west of city and there are several exclusive residential areas - Colonia de Santa Ines and Puerto de la Torre behind Teatinos district which have been quite popular with the British.  Cerrado de Calderon, Limonar, Malagueta and Pedregalejo are east of the city centre which have also been quite popular.

The property market in Malaga is a stable one due to longer-term residences compared with other coastal resorts. The market is made up of mostly apartments - houses tend to be limited top exclusive areas. Property is cheaper than other parts of coast, except for the exclusive areas – its just a matter of time before these cheaper properties catch up so there is plenty of scope for capital growth. Prices have gradually risen in past few years and demand is high for most of the year due to a large university population.
