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.
