We must also mention the local pastries, the most famous is the ‘tarta loca’ or La Loca. This cake is available in almost every bakery and pastry shop in Malaga. It is also worth asking about the sweet ‘roscos de vino’.

Malaga Wines and Beer

Malaga also has a great variety of sweet wines, among which “el Cartojal” stands out. The great favourite during the different summer festivals and fairs in Malaga. But there are many more, take advantage and try other typical sweet wines such as Pajarete or Moscatel.

In recent years the demand for artisanal beer has skyrocketed and Malaga is no exception. The most famous local beer is Victoria, but more and more brands are quickly gaining popularity.

Traditional Articles and Clothing
