I (heart) Malaga

Photobucket

I don’t know why, but I just love Spain. I love the hot climate, the awesome countryside, ranging from wild mountains and deserts to lush forest and the beautiful Medditerranean and Atlantic coasts. One of the cities I love most is Malaga. Malaga is in Andalusia, right on the Medditerranean Sea. But lo and behold, it is not a tourist trap, this ancient city! Once ruled by Phonecians, Romans, Arabs and finally the Spaniards, the city looks and feels like a mix of different styles of architecture and cultures. The weight of its history is prevailing in almost every corner. It was also birthplace and home to the one and only Picasso. The city is well aware of its heritage, as there are several historic museums, one Picasso museum and the house of his birth.

So loaded up, we first went to our resting place ( camping site), that was about 20 minutes from the center of Malaga and not that expensive at all. What I did not expect of Spain before actually going there was how well its infrastructure is developed. There is very cheap train service everywhere and busses are even cheaper!

Going on a tour at our new “home”, we discovered an awesome beach (unfortunately no photo), with palm trees next to it. I love palm trees!

When we finally made it to Malaga (not because it is so far, but because we were very busy discovering our locality), it was already night. I don’t know what is more impressive, Malaga at night or Malaga at day, but I have to say both are pretty freaking impressive!

Another great thing about Spain is the food. The cuisine is of high quality and very tasty, and it is not even that expensive. Tapas are great for every opportunity and paellas are just tasty!

Of course, we are missing something here, or are we? No, because the Turkish Donerman is everywhere!

And once you are done with sightseeing, you can go get your culture fix (or take a picture in front of a museum to tell your parents you educate yourself), visiting one of the many museums or historic churches.

I like the architecture of the buildings in the city center, the city council seems to be doing a good job maintaining everything.

And for some relaxation there are plenty of little parks scattered throughout the city.
