Historic City Centre of Malaga
A city visit in Málaga is most worthwhile, even if you spend only a short time there.
If you are interested in cultural activities, there are a lot of things to do! At this point the Cathedral of Málaga has to be mentioned, which looks back on a large history. Furthermore there are some very recommended museums such as the Picasso Museum or the Museum Carmen Thyssen which deliver insight into Spanish and especially Andalusian art.
A great experience is a visit to the market of Atarazanas where fresh fruits, vegetable, fish of every description, meat, cheese and gammon are offered every day. A further highlight of the market are all the olives whose cultivation is typical for the Andalusian regions of Málaga, Seville, Cordoba and Jaen.
The main shopping street is the central Calle Larios. The city center of Malaga with all its small alleys and huge monuments is a great place to pass during the day, at noontime and in the evening hours you will find quite a number of typical Spanish restaurants. By night the centre is filled with people who enjoy the full of life Spanish nightlife that for a big part takes place at the streets.
The city is a nice setting to have a walk at any time of day and night: La Plaza de la Merced, with the house of Pablo Picasso´s birth, the old Roman theatre, the old moorish castle complex, the old cathedral, along the seaside promenade down to the beach of La Malagueta and the new designed harbour with hundreds of palm trees and the exclusive Muelle Uno.
AlquilaHome arranges holiday rentals just in the centre, but also in the nearby beach areas of El Palo and Pedregalejo for those who prefer to have a more quite stay. Most of the holiday rentals of this places are located directly at the beach. Nevertheless it takes only 20 minutes by public transport to go to the centre. Day and night.
