Malaga, more culture than sun

If we think about Malaga, what comes to our mind? Beach, sun, relaxation, beach bars, fried fish, great nightlife in Malaga

But there’s far more to discover. In 2003 was inaugurated the Picasso Museum in Malaga; this is one of six museums in Spain dedicated to the painter who was born precisely in Malaga. It features 285 works, both paintings and sculptures. In the garden-terrace we can enjoy a coffee after touring the museum, a beautiful and privileged place in the heart of the city, with total silence among the noise. Highly recommended!

Another place to discover is the Automobile Museum, located in the ancient complex of 1927 known as the former Tabacalera, which has been recently renovated to become this fantastic museum. It features more than 90 vehicles that illustrate the evolution of the automotive world over three centuries. We can also enjoy a large gallery with engines and a fashion exhibition, which includes more than 300 haute couture hats of every period.

Malaga overviewThe Alcazaba and the castle of Gibralfaro is another site of interest that many people visiting the city do not know. It is an ancient Muslim palace fortress of great beauty, situated at the foot of Mount Gibralfaro. From this citadel we have the opportunity to enjoy a panoramic view of Malaga and the bay.

To finish knowing the city in depth, we should not miss the Roman theatre at the foot of the Alcazaba and the Museum Carmen Thyssen, former Villalon Palace, where we find a great collection of the same owner. It is situated in the old city centre with many charming corners and squares which invite for a stroll or having a drink in one of the many terraces meanwhile we watch people passing by.

After all these visits, now we deserve to go to a nice bar to enjoy a good fried fish and a good drink to end the day. Do you fancy joining in? Tip:

Remember you to drive safe while making tours in the city. If you choose to hire a car in Malaga, take in consideration that in Spain you must drive on the right.
