Vignettes of Málaga

  1. This post came as a sweet desert for an architect’s dinner (ahem, dinner time here). Thanks for bringing me to parts of Malaga yet unknown to me (an amphitheater, really?). We often say that we know more of what’s far away than what we have at home and it’s true – next time I visit I won’t overlook this beautiful city as if I knew every corner of it, because I don’t. Did you visit in spring? people are overdressed from what I saw in your pictures.

    1. It was towards the end of February, Virginia. I do not know how those people were wearing so many layers given how hot it was. I would not venture near the word ‘warm’ which is blessedly mellow. My post as dessert! I am chuffed.
      An amphitheatre too – the various cultures coming together in one city. I never cease to be amazed by human wonders too 🙂 xx

  2. Stunning, stunning, stunning pictures!! The vibrant colours, the blends of architecture, the man made and the natural so perfectly captures. And your words – *whirligig* is a most underused word used sighingly perfectly chez toi. I loved this post. Now I shall close my eyes and dream …. xx

      1. Oh I’m delighted to give you a new expression. The Malaga dreams were just the thing today – very wet and the temp has dropped from 95 to 61F overnight!!!! Xx

      2. Autumn is almost in the air here it seems and I cannot tell you delighted I am. The wet and cool weather calls for hot soup, baguette and butter? Now thinking of that is making me feel hungry even though I have just chowed down a hefty dinner. xx

  3. Loved seeing the varied styles of architecture. The streets are so pristine! I didn’t see any signs of littering. Again, beautiful photographs and wonderfully informative blogpost. – Neek

  4. Looks lovely! I’m disappointed we didn’t get to explore more of Malaga when we were in the area. We only flew out of the airport after our road trip through Southern Spain. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Thank you Louise. There is so much to see in the southern part of Spain that I can imagine missing out on something or the other. But the great thing is that Malaga is right there and you can always plan another trip 🙂 x

      1. That sounds fun! I hope you get to take part in it too. We are off to Vermont …seeing if we can fit in a hike or two. Our first American road trip after moving, so I am chuffed. xx

  5. Wonderful pictures! Andalucia is still on my bucket list, and I get even more impatient when I see these colorful allies. Love areas with such rich history and mixture of different cultures. So envious! 😀

  6. I love the contrast between the cathedral and the zingy yellow of the Episcopal Palace. I have never been to Malaga and i will admit, it was not on my list of places to go but then neither was Seville and it was my favourite place I’ve ever visited. I think another trip to Spain is needed! I hear Salamanca is stunning. I love you way with words as ever lovely and your photos are divine. xxx

  8. I love that – silent camaraderie. That feeling I get when out traveling and admiring a landscape, a painting or anything. And then you looked at the stranger beside you and shared a smile or a nod, and without saying a single word, you know you understand what each one is saying.
