Museum of Air Navigation and Transport


The Museum of Air Navigation and Transport is located right at Malaga Airport, making it suitable for both aviation enthusiasts and anyone with a short layover. The building the museum is housed in was Luis Gutiérrez Soto Airport from 1948 to 1968, then Aeroclub, and finally served as the General Aviation Terminal to 2007. The new permanent exhibition rooms occupy three floors, reflecting the evolution of air transport and the influence on the development of the city through tourism. Closed Mondays.

Picasso Museum (Museo Picasso Málaga)


Visit a collection of more than 200 works of art of the Malaga-born artist; paintings, drawings, sculpture, ceramic and engravings. The Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to Pablo Picasso’s own desire for his work to be present in the city where he was born, on 25th October, 1881. The Picasso museum was opened in 2003 and features 285 works donated by members of Picasso's family. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum features exhibitions on an ongoing basis. Closed Mondays.

 

Also of interest: The oldest architectural remains in Malaga are the walls of the old Phoenician city, which are visible in the basement of the Picasso Museum.

Picasso's birthplace (Museo Casa Natal de Picasso)


Picasso's birthplace has been preserved and is open to the public.

The Museo Casa Natal de Picasso is just a couple of blocks from the Museo Picasso, so you may want to visit both on the same outing. If you need sustenance, the Bodeguita El Gallo, opposite the Museo Picasso's door, offers a typical Andalusian tavern environment and serves traditional tapas.

Roman Theatre (Teatro Romano)


Situated under the Alcazaba facing a small plaza are the beautiful remains of an old Roman theatre (Teatro Romano). The theatre dates from the 1st century BC, and was fortuitously rediscovered in 1951. You can view them anytime from the overlook in the plaza, but if you want to get up close you can enter the attached building, where you'll be shown a short film and view some artifacts before entering the theatre itself, where you can walk past the old stage and sit on the stone steps. Free.

Alcazaba


Alcazaba is a Moorish castle built in the 11th century on a hill in the middle of the city, this old fort is the best-preserved of its kind in Spain. Upon entering you'll climb up past the ramparts offering excellent views of the city and lush gardens to a small Moorish palace at the top which holds a number of artifacts from excavations on the site. Closed Mondays.

Playa de la Malagueta


The nearest beach to Malaga city centre is La Malagueta and is a popular choice for both locals and tourists both for sunbathing and swimming. The beach - 60 metres wide and 2,500 metres long – is actually an artificial beach made from sand imported from the Sahara desert. Nonetheless, it is a great place to just laze around and relax. The beach is well equipped with toilets, showers and lifeguard stations.
