Memories of Malaga

After spending 18 nights in Malaga we returned to the UK with wonderful memories that will remain with us for the rest of our lives. Memories like busy, narrow streets and picturesque alleyways.

Malaga Crystal and Glass Museum

Visiting the Crystal and Glass Museum was a last minute decision on our final day in Malaga and all things considered it was one of the most interesting, perhaps even quirky, venues in the city.

Castillo de Gibralfaro

The Castillo de Gibralfaro sits atop Malaga on a hill named from the Arabic word Yabal meaning mountain and the Greek word Faruk meaning lighthouse and this combination explains why this site was chosen as a coastal vantage point.

Present day artists and their creations can be a mixed bag of tricks, but we were pleasantly surprised by what we found within Malaga's Centre of Contemporary Art.

Pheonicians, Picasso & Plazas

Sunday was cool and sunny and like the locals we headed to a nearby plaza for a couple of relaxing hours to soak up a few rays and savour a glass of wine out of doors.

Carmen Thyssen Museum - Malaga

We're SO grateful to not have any of the snow that is plaguing the rest of Europe, but we haven't gotten off scot-free either. Yesterday was our third day of rain in Malaga and it's torrential.  Umbrellas held high we cued outside the Carmen Thyssen Museum and as I was not about to take a photo in the pouring rain the photo of the exterior of the museum below is courtesy of Google!

Port of Malaga

Tuesday was warm and sunny and we headed to the port which is a short walk south of our flat and seeing as Malaga is on the cruise ship circuit the city has done a fantastic job of creating an inviting and welcoming first impression.
