Centro Comercial Vialia Málaga is a popular shopping centre on the western side of the city.
As part of María Zambrano train station, which caters to long-distance train travellers, and located next to the El Perchel Malaga Metro station, this shopping centre is very well connected.
The ground floor of Centro Comercial Vialia Málaga is a popular destination for those looking to buy clothing and accessories, featuring an impressive array of high-street brands.
Shoppers can explore a wide selection of trendy apparel and footwear in the various shops, all of which can be found here.
That said, while the number of shops is quite impressive, the re-opening and expansion of the nearby Larios Centro mall has seen a number of the bigger brands make the switch there.
Beyond retail therapy, the mall offers a range of dining options on the first floor. Various fast-food outlets cater to quick bites, perfect for busy travellers or those seeking their fix of junk food.
For those looking for something more substantial to eat once they get home (or to their Airbnb), the first floor also houses a large Mercadona supermarket. Here, visitors can conveniently stock up on groceries and other essentials.
Vialia is also home to a cinema that treats movie buffs to occasional screenings in English.
Visitors can enjoy the best of international films in their original language (with Spanish subtitles), as the director intended.
You can check what films are showing here (look out for titles with VOSE next to them to ensure that they’re not dubbed into Spanish).
