Malaga, Spain

Malaga is a port city on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. It is an old city with both Roman ruins and a Moorish fortress. Below are photos of the Moors castle.

This photo is of an arched doorway in the castle.

This is a living statue. He wants you to give him money. I was able to take this photo without him being aware of me. If they see you photographing them and not giving them money sometimes they get aggressive.

An example of the aggressiveness is this bird man shown below. Unfortunately he saw me photographing and not paying and tried to grab Roberta. No harm done, but very unpleasant.

Below is a photo of a window in a building in the old quarter and a door from another building in the same part of town.

This is an old Roman theatre. It's in quite good shape, and located just below the castle.

No one had more fun than this baby.

Malaga would be a good place to stay in Andalusia. From Malaga you can make day trips or longer if desired to the white villages, Grenada, Seville, Gibraltar and other places.

  1. We practically had to claim asylum in an out of the way cathedral (was it Peterskirche?) in Vienna after Jon took a picture of and then laughed at a mad statue-person at Stephansplatz. There are some things I do not like about Stephansplatz...
