Málaga is a bustling port city, at a forty-minute drive from Finca Las Nuevas. From the centre you can walk onto the beach. A few years ago, the city centre was transformed into a car-free area and buildings have been restored.
Therefore, it is great to wander through the old city. We can write a lot of pages about all highlights of Málaga, but we will list up the best things.
Museums in Málaga
In case of bad weather or if it is very hot outside, it’s a good idea to visit a museum. We really loved the Carmen Thyssen museum. It offers a beautiful exposition of Spanish masters and paintings with Spanish scenes.
Of course you should definitely visit the Picasso museum. The world-famous painter Picasso was born in Málaga and his birthplace (which we found not very interesting) at the Plaza de Merced can still be visited. Perhaps it’s a good idea to buy an online entrance ticket for the Picasso museum, otherwise you have to stand in line.
Nice museums for children, read more.
Alcazaba and Gibralfaro
The Gibralfaro castle/fortress towers over the city. The climb up is definitely worth it, because you will get a beautiful view over the harbour and the city in return. Even if you don’t want to visit the museum it is nice to enjoy this view.
You can still walk over the Moorish defense wall. A little lower, at the Gibralfaro mountain, you will find the Alcazaba, a kind of miniature Alhambra with beautifully decorated walls.
