My recommendations of places to visit in Malaga..

Picasso´s Home and Birthplace

Pablo-Picasso-BirthplaceThe Museum- Birth place of Pablo Ruiz Picasso, is one of the 3 galleries committed to this painter in Malaga, all with references by historians to the artist. Amongst the treasures of this museum you can see a large lithography collection, as well as illustrations of substantial artworks by the artist referred to as the “Demoiselles d’Avignon” of 1907.

Plaza de la Merced, Malaga

Malaga Cathedral


The cathedral of the Encarnación is among the town’s essential monuments. The south tower and also the main facade are still unfinished. It is situated in the historical centre of the town. The building sits where a mosque-Moorish quarter once already existed. Work began in the first half of the 16th century, in the Gothic design, bought by the Catholic Monarchs, as well as proceeded in the 17th as well as 18th centuries. It has its own gardens and a stunning courtyard. The inside of the cathedral has Renaissance and also Baroque influences.

Alcazaba Fortress

Alcazaba-malaga-guideThis Arab palace-fortress was constructed in the 11th century by King Badis of Granada. It is completely adjusted to the contours of the land, and also takes maximum benefit of the elevation of a hillside. It is made of 2 concentric areas: the outdoor part (on the lower level) and the inner part houses the palace.

The Gardens of Green Malaga


In Malaga you will see a city packed with green squares that are ideal for walking as well as enjoying the sunlight. The largest square is the 23-hectare La Concepción Historical-Botanical Gardens, situated on the outskirts, which flaunt a wealth of subtropical plants. As you walk thru the yards, it will occasionally feel like you’re in the middle of the jungle.

Castillo de Gibralfaro

kasteel-malaga-guideThis Castle was built in the 14th century to house soldiers and safeguard the Alcazaba, is one of the most checked out monuments in Málaga.

Carmen Thyssen Museum

museum-malaga-guideThe museum is located in an attractive, sunlit building in the city center, and it houses a beautiful compilation of mostly 19th century Spanish fine art. It is all sweeping landscapes and enchanting sea sights, therefore lots of pieces are showing standard Andalusian life.

La Malagueta


La Malagueta is definitely the best (and most safe) choice. As soon as the summer season hits, the beaches will get extremely crowded, particularly on the weekend breaks. When school finishes in June, it resembles a beach of umbrellas. The water will change every day. In some cases it’s calm and clear. Various other days it’s wild and dark blue.

Mercado de Atarazanas

Plaza de la Merced


Pablo Picasso spended his younger years here. The image of the artist, obscene for his birthplace, acts like a magnet for Plaza de la Merced. But besides the Statue, the square is still very beautiful. Starting from one of the many terraces you can see everything what will pass by. Our favorite square for a drink in the Sun!
