Explore historic Spain with a Malaga airport car rental

The port city of Malaga is located on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain and is best explored by rental car. It is the birthplace of Picasso and has everything from art and museums to interesting architecture and ancient ruins. While in Malaga be sure to visit Alcazaba, Spain's best-preserved fortress. Dating back to the 11th century, this important landmark is one of Malaga's most popular attractions. Go on a Sunday after 2pm and enter for free. For a day trip, head to the historic city of Granada, a little over 100km to the northwest of Malaga and Nerja, which is less than 60km from the city.
