This is my Malaga FREE!
Welcome to my Malaga!
My name is Mª Ángeles and I’m the expert in visiting the city without spending any money at the TRYP Malaga Guadalmar. Malaga is a city that will surprise you considering the amount of things you can do for free. From the hustle and bustle of the old quarter and the Arabic fortresses to its famous Picasso Museum or its impressive beaches along the coast.
- Contemporary Art Centre of Malaga: Houses a large collection of 20th and 21st centuries, as well as more recent works of Andalusian art. Entrance is always free and there are often organised activities
- The Picasso Museum, is free on the last Sunday of every month. Located in a 16th century mansion in the heart of the oldest part of the city. It has 155 works donated by Picasso and his family
- Alcazaba and Gibralfaro castle: Put on some comfy shoes and visit this old Moorish castle (bus nº 35). Together these two sights normally cost 3€, but on Sundays after 2pm entrance is free. We can walk around the gardensand enjoy the lovely views of the coast. Don’t forget your camera!
- The Roman Theatre: Located at thefoot of the Alcazaba. It was discovered in 1951. It was built in the era of Augustus and was used until the third century A.D. In the summer from 1st May to 31st August there are also evening visits (booking required)
- The old town: Wander around the narrow, cobbled streets behind Larios street and you will discover the heart of the old quarter of Malaga. This is one of the most charming parts of the city
- Municipal Heritage Museum: From antiquity to the contemporary, collection of over 400 pieces recording the history of the city, including artefacts, paintings, drawings, historical documents and a large library. The museum, distributed on three floors, is free
- Atarazana central market: Lots of stalls selling fresh fish, meat, cheese, fruit and vegetables, and all at great prices. The building on its own deserves a visit as it is one of the city’s architectural jewels, a mix of 14th century Arabic architecture and 19th century industrial design
