Malaga in Pictures Part 1

The only downside to cruising I think is that time in each ports-of-call is so very limited. There is only so much you can do or see or even attempt to do or see. When our ship docked in Malaga, we were at a lost for stuff to do. Well, not true. We knew what we wanted to do and that is sightsee by walking. What we were not sure of is how big the city center is or if walking was feasible.

We took the public bus from the port and it stopped just outside the historic center. The first thing we saw was the Malaga Cathedral. After the visit to the cathedral, we decided to just walk around the area. I must say that I'm quite impressed by the historic center. It is pretty walkable, with many restaurants, stores, museums and churches. What a charming town this is and I've only seen a little bit of it. The architecture is equally charming. It reminds me so much of New Orleans' French Quarter.

Part 1 is devoted to the beautiful architecture, mostly doors and windows.

And before we continued our peregrination, we stopped for little drink.

  7. Wonderful captures of the different colours and styles of architecture in Malaga - truly an eclectic mix - looks like you stopped there long enough to get a feel for the ambiance of this colourful area.

  8. I noticed that in Europe, though haven't been to Spain, you can find those cute little window boxes of flowers in most houses and buildings. When plenty in a ledge they are very beautiful.

  11. Very very nice. I'm very much interested in architecture, too, and these photos just make me want to go visit. Chances are, though, I'd be able to go to New Orleans first before Spain!

  13. I think that is why I am hesitant to take cruises. But, on the other side, it is a way to see a lot in a short period of time (because sometimes that is the only way to go). Love your photos. Hope I visit this city one day.

  15. I think we call those "french balconies". They look very nice.

  16. What beautiful architecture. It is lovely that Malaga is intact and has suffered so little of the damage that other cities have experienced due to war.

  18. That's one of the reasons why I haven't tried a cruise yet - the time you have for each places is very limited. I definitely would love to spend more than a day in MAlaga. :)
