A sketching trip to Malaga

I spent five days drawing in the beautiful Spanish City of Malaga in April and I am sharing the sketches from the trip here. Further down the page, a little about some of the places where I ate and a few extra tips which might be useful if you are planning a trip yourself!

A few extra tips:

  • Most places in the centre of the city are easy to walk to but if you need to go further, buses are a great way to get around and a “bonobus’ ticket, for 10 trips, is good value. 
  • The free Citymapper app covers the Malaga area 
  • The Musée Picasso Malaga is free for the last two hours on a Sunday afternoon.
  • A ticket for the Alcazaba gets you into the Castillo too.


I’m sure there are so many great places to eat but here are a few that I tried and would recommend: 

Casa Lola -  Ate there three times and each time enjoyed it, including tasty tapas and a wonderful goats cheese salad. Their specialty of thin slices of aubergine, deep fired and served with molasses may sound strange but you need to try it!

El Pimpi - It’s in all the guide books and there was always a queue but still worth going to. The surroundings are part of the experience, a rambling interior and outside terrace with views of the Amphitheatre and Alcazaba. Ate a variety of tapas which was much more filling than it looked!

Casa Aranda - A lovely café selling churros and chocolate which seems to have taken up most of the little shops in the alley where it is based. Enjoyed breakfast there a couple of times and would recommend for the food and people watching.

Panderia Cafeteria Granier - Nice little bakery selling sandwiches and cakes with friendly service.
