Málaga – A Beautiful Old City


The drive to Málaga is an exceptional one.

Heading along the coastal highway offered chances to see hillside towns looking towards the Mediterranean.

Unfortunately there was nowhere to pull over to get any photos!

Málaga’s history spans about 2,800 years, which makes it one of the oldest cities in the world.

Once again I got around on foot. The walk to the top of Mount Gibralfaro is hard work, especially in the heat of the day, but the view is certainly worth the effort.

The Gibralfaro Castle is also worth a visit, along with the Alcazaba of Málaga.

The garden areas of Málaga are beautiful and well maintained, as they are throughout Spain. Sitting and admiring them was a favourite part of my trip.

The beachfront is another fantastic spot to sit and enjoy the warm Mediterranean sun.

Another delight in Málaga is the amazing street art.

Most cities have street art of some kind, but I found the examples here absolutely brilliant!

I had only two nights here, and wished for more.  But it was time to head to the next city – Seville…
