Shopping in the Plaza Mayor in Malaga, Spain

Elvis Elvis

For something really different take a day out and visit the Plaza Mayor, a beautiful open-air shopping centre situated between Torremolinos and Malaga.

Built in traditional Andalusian style … the shops are set around flower-filled squares decorated with fountains and shady trees … … don’t get there too early though … the precinct doesn’t wake up until 10 or 11 a.m. … but it does stay open very late …

… compared to other commercial centres there are not too many shops, presently around 50 (with plans to grow) … but this shopping arcade however provides great family entertainment … the kids can go bowling … there’s billiards, video games, darts and a bunch of other stuff to keep them entertained for quite a while.

Shopping in the Plaza Mayor in Malaga, Spain

Here there are continual events going on throughout the year from book fairs to horse shows … all free of charge.

There’s plenty to see and do … there are over seventy bars and restaurants throughout the centre plus twenty ultra modern cinemas, a gymnasium and two discotheques.

There is also one more advantage here if you’re married to a mad golfer and he doesn’t fancy trolling around the shops … the shopping centre is across the road from the Parador de Golf so he can pre-book his tee-off time and then drop you off at the shops … it just doesn´t get any better than this !
