Things to Do in Malaga:
- Picasso was born in Málaga, though he left as a child and rarely returned. So, if you want a city that once inspired a world famous painter, Málaga is not the place. However, to find out more about the great painter, there is the Museo Picasso Málaga.
- The thousand-year-old Alcazaba, which once belonged to the old Muslim rulers.
- Enjoy the nightlife - one of the better places in Andalusia to enjoy a night on the tiles.
- Eat tapas and drink the local wine, either by yourself or as part of a Tapas Tour and Wine Tasting in Malaga.

From the train station, turn right (along Explanada de la Estacion) and left down c/Cuarteles. When you hit the River Guadalmedina, walk along it until you reach a bridge that will take you to Alameda Principal. This will take you into the most southerly part of the old town. You can either walk through the park (along Paseo del Parque) or turn left and walk up into the main old town area. Then you can turn right (along c/Cortina del Muelle) and arive in the Plaza de la Aduana or keep walking and head north towards the Cathedral.
From Plaza de la Aduana it is a short walk to the Alcazaba.
