"Plaza de la Merced" Málaga Favorite Tip by Malecka
Málaga General: 78 reviews and 83 photos
Favorite thing: Ok, close to the Plaza del General Torrijos there?s a tunnel taking you directly to Plaza de la Merced ? a place very much ALIVE, full of bars, cafes and of course, people. Located at one of the corners of this plaza you can find the house where Picasso was born and lived the first ten years of his life. An interesting place to visit ? they have nice souvenirs (though a bit expensive) and also it is open on Sundays also. ?Enfrente del Pintor? (very cool name by the way) is a bar located (as the name suggests) opposite of the Picasso?s house. In case you?re feeling kind of hungry, just turn right when stepping outside the house and go straight, and you reach a marvelous pastry-shop called ?José María.?
And in the same line where the house of Picasso is, you can find nice cafes, like El Portón - HAPPY HOUR: Tasty coffee and nice staff.
At night, especially Fridays and Saturdays the Plaza de la Merced is PACKED with people, tourists and locals.
PS. I have no idea how I managed to actually take a pic on a rainy day. I promise though, it is Costa del Sol! ;-)
Fondest memory: The morning coffee, the afternoon "Tinto de verano" and the evenings spent in "Latina"
