Malaga is the second largest city of Andalusia and has remained a very active port. Tourism is also a privileged sector of activity, as can be seen by the various hotel and tourist infrastructures found along the seafront. Malaga has, of course, suffered from property speculation; however, the old city has conserved all of its charm and offers interesting aspects such as the Alcazaba, (a fortress ruin), the unfinished Renaissance style cathedral, the Picasso Museum, and the house where the artist was born, a moving testimony to his childhood.
