Malaga, Spain

This city in the autonomous Spanish province of Andalusia enjoys lots of sunshine, even averaging at least six hours of sun daily during the wetter winter months. Temperatures regularly top 85 degrees on July and August afternoons, but summer is the driest season, so these highs are accompanied by very little humidity. Winter lows can drop below 50 at night, but the mercury rebounds into the low 60s during the daytime. People can take advantage of the climate at many pedestrian-friendly outdoor shopping streets and markets around the city. Malaga also has a rich history, with the remnants of the Roman and Moorish empires sitting alongside more-modern architecture. There is also a rich artistic tradition: Malaga has produced famous poets, actors and artists, including the master Pablo Picasso.
