Málaga

The Alcazaba of Málaga.

For us Málaga is museums, art, monuments, the old town streets, eating tapas and just a lot of strolling around. A lively minimetropolis. 

 

 

 

 

Almost everything which we find interesting is within walking distance. City center is accessible by car from west. The eternally unfinished street works in the old main streets ( Avenida de Andalucía - Puente Tetuan - Alameda principal ) don't bother much when we drive in from A-7 using the Calle Pacífico towards the port. Ample parking space in Muelle Uno or Alcazaba, for example.
