You can’t have a family holiday in Spain without seeing at least one of the country’s remarkable cities. But the likes of Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia or even Seville, can be a bit on the big side for kids, especially if you’re just dropping by for the day. Luckily there are plenty of smaller alternatives, neater in size, but just as fascinating in their own way.
Have a look at a few cities handpicked for fun; easy to get around; good for a quick visit, and great for entire holidays too.
If you know Malaga as the ‘airport city’ you’re in for a pleasant surprise. It’s certainly one of the best connected places on the Costa del Sol, but it’s also great fun for younger kids, very family-friendly, and has masses of teen appeal – and not just on its huge, sporty beaches.
