Málaga is a well-known city in the south of Spain, which is the sixth largest city in the country in terms of the number of permanent residents. If we look only in Andalusia, it is the second most populous settlement after Seville. Directly in the city lives about 580000 inhabitants, and if we take the entire metropolitan area so it is about 900000 inhabitants.
Málaga is a very important transport hub not only in the region, but also within the entire Iberian Peninsula. It has not only an important port, but also an international airport. You will also find a university in the city.
Of course, it is also a very popular tourist destination.

Like other large cities, Málaga is administratively divided into smaller territorial administrative units. This facilitates orientation in the city and administrative tasks for locals. In the case of this city, it is ten districts (distritos):
Centro, Este (s Pedregalejo, El Palo a Cerrado de Calderón), Ciudad Jardín, Bailén/Miraflores, Palma/Palmilla, Cruz de Humilladero, Carretera de Cádiz, Churriana , Campanillas a Puerto de la Torre.
The fastest and most convenient way to get to Málaga is, of course, air travel. The city has its own international airport and regular connections with many European cities.

The airport has three terminals and, of course, good connections with the city itself.
