Hi frizziep

Go right to the end of the line - alameda principal and walk down the said street to calle larios and the city is your oyster!

As a reference point you want to walk away from el corte inglese down the avenue lined with trees.

No problem at all!

Enjoy your trip in Easter. You may be able to take in some processions if you are there during holy week.

Easier way is to hop on the bus either 110 or 112, the terminus is at the new port complex at the top of Calle Larios, cuts out all the walking from the railway station into the centre (walk10/15 minutes). I think writer in item 1 is confused, El Corte is in the opposite direction unless you are exiting the RENFE station.

Friends:

The last Cercanias train station is called the Malaga Centro-Alameda Station. This station is 450 meters away from the Plaza de la Marina and Calle Larios.

Hi Ian

Apologies guys I should have been clearer.

I meant walk away from it down past the trees to Calle Larios. I was hoping that the trees would be the real reference point.

Apologies for not naming the station correctly Benny - I got the end of the line right thankfully.

I must have been having one of those days...

Frizziep. If you are coming for Easter suggest you come in daylight to get your bearings. The crowds for the processions are massive it it almost impossible to find the train station entrances unless you are returning at the end of the parades. These finish between 3am and 5am.

The train runs all through the night during this time. Again it is more reason to use the bus as all the processions either pass the railway station or very close buy and often the only way to cross the road is by the authorised crossing. The bus stops close to the port just away from the processions routes.

We will be in Malaga every night in the week before easter, you should not miss this wonderful time to be in Malaga.

I am hoping to work out how to put pictures and videos on this site.

Does anyone know if the singing Foreign Legion Soldiers are taking part in the Mena Parade next easter, heard that due to cut backs they may not perform, hope not true, this is the number one procession for me.
