In addition, monuments such as the Gibralfaro fort, Roman theatre, English Cemetery, archaeological sites of La Araña, and the Botanical-Historical Garden of La Concepción will also participate in World Tourism Day by opening their doors for free.
The day has been celebrated by the World Tourism Organization (WTO) on 27 September since 1980, and each year aims to showcase how crucial tourism is to different destinations across the globe. This year The WTO is stressing "the need for more green investment, better oriented towards people, the planet and prosperity".
Last year, more than 24,000 people passed through the doors for free at Malaga city's many museums, exhibitons and landmarks - it was the highest attendance in four years.
Information about opening hours, location, booking and public transport is included in a leaflet provided by the city hall's tourism department which can be downloaded here.
The brochure can also be found at tourist offices and has been sent to some hotels across Malaga city and along the Costa del Sol, from Estepona to Nerja and in Frigiliana, Ronda and Antequera.
