5 Things to do for free in Malaga

We here are HitchHikers Handbook love travelling for as long as possible so we appreciate the need to keep costs down when possible. Below are 5 Things to do for free in Malaga and have fun without spending a penny.

1. The normally pricey Museo Picasso (The Picasso Museum) is free on Sundays between 6pm to 8pm.

2. The Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibralfaro are free to enter on Sundays from 2pm until close.

3. Mercado de Atarazanas (Atarazanas Market), situated right in the heart of the old town, was originally a 14th century Moorish shipyard but is now a great place to soak up the sounds and smells of modern Málaga. It is open 8am to 2pmMonday to Saturday.

4. The CAC Málaga – Centro de Arte Contemporáneo (Málaga’s Centre for Contemporary Art) houses a wide selection of 20th and 21st century art including works from Damian Hirst, Louise Bourgeois and local Andalusian artists. It is open Monday to Sunday and is free.

5. No list of free activities in Málaga would be complete without the beach. There are a number to choose from and can be reached either on foot or by public transport. So slip into those unenviable tight speedos and head on down.


6. Relax in the enchanting Plaza de la Merced (Merced Square) and enjoy a coffee at one of its many cafés.

7. If you’re a fan of Rococo architecture be sure to visit Iglesia de Los Santos Mártires (Church of the Saintly Martyrs) which was  erected in honour of the martyrs Ciriaco and Paula, the patron saints of the city.
