First real visit
After many times passing by Málaga (and stopping just once), I finally gave myself time to a new quick visit.
Though far from the marvels of Andaluzia, Málaga is interesting to see, with tourism “forcing” the city to enhance its history, in the middle of a visible modernity, to justify the thousands of tourists that fill the hours away from the seaside with… tourism.
In my first visit I went to the Alcazaba, almost forty years ago, and was not impressed; This time I decided to appreciate it from below, and found the image much more impressive.
Trying to read something about it, I found some pictures that don’t match the poor idea of my first visit (hard restoration? closed sections in the old days? who knows?).
The question is that I’m sorry for not having spent one more hour to go inside. Next time, for sure.
It’s a fortified palace from the 11th century said to be ” the best preserved in Spain. That’s it – mandatory to see!
Plaza de la Merced
Marquês de Lários street
Sagrado Corazon square
Sagrado Corazon church
Santa Ana church
“Santos Mártires” church
Garden of the cathedral
San Juan de Dios square
Paseo de España
Salvador Rueda monument
Plaza de la Marina
El Corte Ingles
I’m not a fan of shopping malls and walking in the company of a fashion lover, the sacrifice is huge. The exception was Dubai, where air conditioning made up for all the sacrifices.
On a very hot day in Malaga, the shopping break was also a balm, used for lunch.
What a name!
Close to El Corte Ingles I saw a church with a strange and extremely long name: (Something that I don’t remember) del Museo de la Archicofradía del Dulce Nombre de Jesús Nazareno del Paso y María Santísima de la Esperanza. Uff!
Well, it’s a museum that I didn’t visit, because I got tired only for reading the name.
