Travel: Malaga, Spain

a view of the Mediterranean Sea taken on the path to the Alcazaba Palace

Malaga is a seaport city on the southern coast of Spain. One of the oldest cities in the world, it was ruled by the Moors and eventually conquered by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. Birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Malaga is also home to a Picasso Museum (there’s another in Barcelona) and the Alcazaba Palace (a palace/fortress).

We went to Malaga mostly because I wanted to take a day trip from there to Tangier, but it turned out to be a hidden gem. What stand outs about Malaga is the streets-some ordinary, but others were made of cobblestone, and some even granite and marble. If we had more time, we would have also visited the Castillo de Gibralfaro (a Moorish castle) and the Malaga Cathedral.

Malaga is a beautiful city, and I recommend stopping there if given the opportunity.

Since photography isn't allowed in the Picasso Museum,
we settled for a photo outside

The ice cream was delicious, but look how beautiful
the plaza stonework is!
