After a month off, i am back on the blog to tell you about my summer holidays !
Yes, I was away for almost a month and I visited wonderful Spanish places. With this first post, then, I want to inaugurate the new section of the blog: #TRAVEL. Within this category I will speak you about my travels trying to tell you all the details that mostly impressed me and convey the atmosphere lived during the time spent away from home! Including photographs, descriptions and little tips, i will help you to know these remote parts of the world that I carry in my heart 🙂
Today I start from my first stop in Andalucía: Málaga, the city of Picasso!
Let’s start by saying that Andalucía is the most southern region of Spain, where you can enjoy in the true sense of the word the essence of this wonderful country.
Just arrived in the city we left our luggages in our hostel / hotel Casa al Sur Terraza. I speak about, hostel / hotel because this accommodation allows you to choose between dormitories with shared bathrooms and double rooms with private bathroom (we opted for the second solution!).
Left the hotel, then we ran in a few minutes to visit the lovely historic center of Málaga. Among the little streets of the center you can admire colorful buildings characterized by glass verandas, housing and restaurants looking distinctly Arabic that refer to the Moorish domination and striking cathedral with its romantic patio of orange trees.
Can not miss, then, a visit to the Picasso Museum, the ancient Alcazaba Fortress and the modern port of the city.
The only flaw of Málaga is the sea, do not expect white sand and clear water, even if you will not be disappointed from the promenade de la Malagueta lined with an endless row of tall palm trees and large modern buildings!
In my opinion, you will be able to see plenty of the city in 2/3 days, including cultural visits, shopping and gourmet stops in bars and restaurants!
Finally, regard to the kitchen, you must (after all as in the rest of Spain) taste the paella – I recommend you the restaurant Bodega El Patio – and the typical Spanish tapas and sangria (red if you want to follow the traditions or white for those who want to venture!) – i recommend the Taberna del Siglo bar or the cute kiosks in the Mercado de la Merced open until midnight! -.
I wanted to write a lot more, but I tried to summarize in a few lines what in my opinion is worth a visit to this magical and romantic city!
— See you at the next stop of Andalusia: Marbella! —
