Málaga’s city centre is very easy to manage given its size and the sheer amount of pedestrianised streets, which make it really easy to walk to the main highlights.
Some of the places you can’t miss in Málaga are the following:
- Calle Larios. The main shopping street, this beautiful location is, along with the nearby plaza de la Constitucion, the área of reference for the malagueños. It’s the focal point for almost every local celebration and the starting location for every stroll in the city centre.
- Plaza de la Merced. This very animated square is home to Picasso’s birthplace, hence the statue you can find in one of its corners. It’s a vital spot for the locals, being one of the centres of the cheerful and lively nightlife thanks to all the restaurants and business located in the surroundings of the square.
- Roman Theatre – Alcazaba. One can appreciate the extent of Malaga’s history at a glance. From Alcazabilla Street you can see the most important archeological buildings in town. Don’t miss it at night, the lights on the old theatre and moorish castle are impressive. The entrance for the theatre is free and visiting the moorish palace and castle is highly advisible. Just the views of the bay are already worth it!
- The Cathedral. This astonishing monument, called by the locals La manquita (the one-armed lady) because of its missing tower, is one of the symbols of the city. Whether you just contemplate the façade from the pretty plaza del Obispo, or go inside and visit the rooftop, you won’t forget the experience.
- Mercado de Atarazanas. Although the building is pretty enough to visit it when de market is closed, you just have to check it out to see how the locals live and eat. There is all kind of local products, and sometimes you can simple them!
If you’re still wondering what to do in Malaga, there’s plenty of other cultural activities that you can do without leaving the city centre.
More over, we recommend you to go to:
- Picasso Museum. The most famous malagueño has its museum a short walk away from his birthplace. Here you can get an insight of his life and work.
- Carmen Thyssen Museum. Outstanding collection of paintings that depict life in traditional Andalusia. Very interesting temporary collections as well.
- Museo de Málaga. The city museum, located in the beautiful former customs office, hosts the archeological museum, with phoenician, roman and moorish remains.
- Semana Santa brotherhoods. There are 42 brotherhoods in Malaga, and most of them are in the city centre. Some are open to visit all year round (i.e. Estudiantes and El Sepulcro, in Alcazabilla Street), so you can check out the huge and impressive floats that are taken out in procession during the holy week.
- Churches. There are many beautiful churches in town, like Santiago (the oldest in Malaga, Picasso was baptised there), San Juan or Los Martires.
