Explore Malaga city

Malaga, an amazing vibrant city with such a rich history. A city which we, Finca Mil Estrellas, have fallen in love with. 

Visit the Alcazaba to start with. This Moorish fortress guards the city and beholds many architectural and archeological wonders. Next to the Alcazaba is the Roman Theatre, so this is an easy next stop.

From here, walk to the Cathedral, for a visit inside, as well as the rooftop for spectacular views of the city. Opposite of the Cathedral is the Bishop’s Palace, with its colorful front and beautiful ceiling paintings. You can buy a combined ticket for the Cathedral & Palace online to skip the lines.

Lastly, visit the famous Mercado Atarazanas, the daily fresh market where the you will find the most beautiful products, as well as a wide variety of small bars for Tapas & Drinks. A real treat to add this to your exploration list!

Malaga has become the new Museum Capital of Spain.

Home of Pablo Picasso, but also the newly opened Museo de Malaga La Aduana, the Centre Pompidou, Carmen Thyssen, the Centre of Contemporary Art (CAC),  the Automobile Museum and many more. 

Schedule some time to explore 1 of the Museums during your stay at Finca Mil Estrellas. Several Museums have free entrance on Sundays, to make it even more attractive.

Malaga is amazing for Shopping!

Start in Calle Marques de Larios for a wide variety of main stream shops, like Zara, Massimo Duti, Mango, Berschka and more. In the small streets left and right of Calle Larios, you will find the most beautiful Boutiques and we advise you to take your time here.

Malaguenos like to dress to impress and so you can expect to find really nice items here.

Just outside the city centre, you will find the Corte Ingles, the famous Spanish Department Store. If you plan to purchase something here, make sure you bring your Passport, as foreigners will receive an additional 10% discount on all products. Go to the customer service desk, to claim this benefit! 

Hammam Málaga, rest during your vacation

Hammam Al Andalus in Malaga is a true haven of tranquility. After a visit to the hammam you will feel energized and relaxed. A perfect ingredient for your holiday when staying at Finca Mil Estrellas!

Hammam Al Andalus has amazing original Arabic architecture and is very modern & clean. Experience the various baths and steam rooms. The massages will highlight your visit. Make sure to bring your bikini or swimming shorts!

Opening hours: Monday – Sunday 10:00 to 23:30

Malaga, city by the Mediterranean, home of soo many great seafood dishes…..and offcourse restaurants.

Malaga is known for its “fritura Malaguena” (deepfried fish), as well for its large selection of “Marisco” (shellfish) and Grilled Sardinas.

Malaga has great restaurants both in the city, as well as on the beach. Remember that mosts restaurants follow the Spanish timetable for lunch and dinner, which means 14.00 – 16.30 hrs for lunch and 20.00 – 24.00 hrs for dinner.

We from Finca Mil Estrellas can give you recommendations on restaurants in Malaga.

Malaga is a great city for Nightlife.

From Wednesday to Sunday, between 23.00 – 07.00 hrs, expect to be entertained by the wide variety of Bars, Pubs and Clubs (Sala’s). The Spanish take their Nightlife serious and so they take it slow.

Take a Cocktail at Batik for example, a Rooftop Bar with great views over the Alcazaba. Or, start with an amazing Gin & Tonic at the Gin & Tonic Bar, near the Cathedral.

Afterwards, get lost in the streets around Plaza Mitjana, where you will find loads of Spanish Bar Dancing and Sala’s. See what you think of Sala Gold, Liceo or Toulouse. If you prefer dancing to Deep House & Nu Indie, go to Club Metrica.

Remember, don’t drink & drive. The Spanish police are rutheless when it comes to alcohol in traffic!
