Spain – the return!

Been all quiet on the blogging front lately as I’ve been slaking my travel lust with another visit to Spain.

I’ve done an about turn in the past few years from being a bit of a snob about the country, thinking it was all Benidorm, Magaluf, puking and high rises, to adoring its picturesque old towns, eclectic architecture and wealth of history.

This time we’re heading to Malaga and the surrounding delights of Andalucia.

We picked the lovely DeBambu Apartments in the centre of the old town for our six night stay.

We opted for the six person apartment as there were four adults and this was spread across two floors connected with a spiral staircase! Ace!

First up is a whistle stop tour of the old town and a visit to the Alcazaba and Castle Gibralfaro as they are free on Sundays!

There are a proliferation of beautiful tiles to be found across the city, below are a few of them.

Malaga Cathedral is know as the One Armed lady due to only one of the two bell towers being completed, the other is an abbreviated stump!

The streets are a maze of beautiful buildings, intricate tiling and painted walls.

Here’s a few more of the ornate details that can be found on every street corner.
