What to do on a rainy day in the city of Malaga?

Are you one of those who enjoy or shy away from rainy days? In any case it is not an impediment to ruin your plans, because we are going to tell you what to do on a rainy day in Malaga. Yes, it’s rare for it to rain in the capital of the Costa del Sol, with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, but it can happen that you get caught in the rain right when you want to visit the city. But as we say, Malaga has a wide variety of plans for all weathers, so without further delay we’ll tell you where to take shelter and enjoy good plans.


Let’s start with something basic and essential on a rainy day: having something warm and covered from the rain. Depending on your taste, it could be a coffee in a café, for example, but we would like to recommend some very typical Malaga dishes. A classic is chocolate with churros, which is sure to take the chill off in no time. You will hear and see Casa Aranda recommended everywhere, and it is normal because of the great history it has in the city. But we also really like Churrería La Malagueña, with fantastic churros that are good at any time of the day.

From here you can visit the Atarazanas Market, see the beautiful stained glass window at one of the entrances and, of course, mingle with the locals doing their shopping. If you fancy a different type of food, you’re sure to find something to drink here that you’ll love.


Malaga has a large number of museums with different themes, where you can easily spend hours looking at works and heritage of great artistic and historical value. And if you’re “lucky enough” to get caught in the rain on a Sunday, many of Malaga’s museums are free on this day. However, we advise you to go to the entrance in good time and with an umbrella because there are queues. The main museums in the city that we recommend are:

  • Thyssen Museum: it brings together one of the most important collections of Spanish and Andalusian painting from the beginning of the 19th century to the beginning of modernity in the 20th century, covering genres such as landscape and genre painting.
  • Centre Pompidou: inside you can find semi-permanent exhibitions which last around two and a half years and which represent a thematic and chronological journey through the art of the 20th and 21st centuries.
  • Centro de Arte Contemporáneo (CAC): a museum with free access all year round! A necessary stop if you like contemporary art, as its aim is to disseminate the plastic arts of the 20th and 21st century.
