68 Malaga Trip – Best spots

January 23, 2024

In Málaga, the Mediterranean embraces the city, painting its skyline with warm and serene hues.

Southern Spain is REALLY, REALLY cool. We’ve identified our favourite cities, and although Málaga isn’t at the top, it doesn’t mean we don’t like it or appreciate how cool it is. There are just other cities we prefer. The advantage we have with Málaga is that it’s one of the closest cities to us, and we can take advantage of what it offers.

Málaga, located in the beautiful region of Andalucía in southern Spain, is a coastal city with just over half a million inhabitants. It has a fascinating mix of history, culture, and delicious food. The Mediterranean climate is mild for much of the year, but summers are quite intense, thankfully tempered by its beautiful coastline. This city is a popular tourist destination because of its rich history, cool architecture, and vibrant cultural scene; some of the best cultural events we’ve attended in the south have been in Málaga.

The old town is a maze of narrow streets and charming squares where you can immerse yourself in Spanish life. The Cathedral of Málaga, known as “La Manquita” due to its unfinished tower, and the Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress with breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the sea, are two iconic places that reflect Málaga’s rich history. To connect with this city, you have to explore it on foot, and as you wander through its streets, look up, and admire its beautiful architecture, you’ll find many surprises.

The city is also famous for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. The Picasso Museum in Málaga houses an extensive collection of the painter’s works, allowing visitors to explore the evolution of his talent over the years. This city also hosts the Thyssen Museum, which has a great collection.

Málaga has undergone a cultural renaissance in recent decades by opening numerous museums, contemporary art galleries, and cultural spaces. One of our favourites is the Soho Theatre, a project by Antonio Banderas, a cultural gem in the Soho district, a neighbourhood with many vibes.

As a tourist destination, Málaga is interesting, and the people are friendly. You can explore the city with a sense of security, although it’s a bit expensive to stay and live in, making it a city with high prices for renting or buying.

We’re very grateful to have such cool places to visit.

According to our experiences, these are the places we like the most in Málaga:

  • Historic center
  • Visit “La Manquita”
  • Having coffee in Málaga is a whole experience.
  • Watching a play at some of these places: Soho Theatre, Cervantes Theatre, and Echegaray Theatre. All three are fantastic.
  • Passing by the Roman Theatre and enjoying its history.
  • Walk down Larios Street and reflect on how cool it would be to have more local shops and not so many global chains.
  • Strolling in the Paseo del Parque.
  • Try Turrón ice cream.
  • Visiting one of its museums, the Picasso and Thyssen museums represent the city.
  • Exploring its cool bookstores.

Thank you for reading.

Have a great day! 😘
