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 […]

You won’t find too many mainstream films on show here, though. The majority […]
La Concepción

La Concepción botanical gardens

Malaga’s Botanical Gardens, just a 15-minute drive from the historic centre, is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. When visiting this green oasis, spread across a magnificent three-hectare plot, you can scarcely believe you’re in a major city.

In fact, in 1990 when the estate became property of the city hall, a plant inventory was created: an impressive […]
