la recova malaga (4)

La Recova

La Recova is pretty hard to define. Even when you’re stood right outside, looking at it. The sign says it’s a café… and yet there are pots, pans, crockery and other peculiar items (a bicycle, a record player and bird cages!) for sale in and around the doorway. The truth is, it’s an eclectic mix between a café and a homeware store with products all sourced from in and around Malaga province. Even though it’s tucked away in a small […]
plaza mayor shopping malaga

Plaza Mayor / McArthurGlen Designer Outlet

Plaza Mayor was already enormous, but now thanks to the addition of the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, even the most serious shopaholic couldn’t ask for more. This out-of-town shopping and leisure complex is the biggest in Malaga city and is close to both the airport and Guadalmar. It’s a mostly outdoor complex, organised around a series of small plazas, creating the impression that it’s a small town of its own. It offers thousands of visitors every year an enormous selection of […]

museo thyssen malaga

Entorno Thyssen

The arrival of the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga has also coincided with the regeneration of its surrounding area, known as the ‘entorno Thyssen’. In the museum’s own words: “The Museo Carmen Thyssen has been crucial for the revitalization and recovery of this part of the city, an environment that has regained its vitality and its identity as it takes on a new lease of life driven by the Museum and its brand.” In practical terms, this means what were once quite […]

k tuin

K-Tuin, Apple store

It was exciting news for all Apple addicts when Málaga was chosen as the location for K-Tuin’s first store in Andalucía. It was also quite a surprise when it closed up on Calle Nueva. However, there’s good news. If you want to get your hands on the latest iPhones or iPads, or just want to stand in awe of what Apple are offering, you can now head to the Vialia shopping centre!
el corte inglés malaga

El Corte Inglés

You can’t miss the massive El Corte Inglés when entering Malaga from the west up the grand Avenida de Andalucía. Nor if you’re on pretty much any rooftop in the city. Especially around Christmas time when adorned with its famous illuminations. Though not local to Malaga (it was founded in Madrid in 1934) El Corte Inglés is a symbol across Spain. In fact, it is currently the biggest department store group in Europe. With its vast floor space and multiple […]
