Day 14: Malaga

Malaga is Europe’s summer getaway. It is a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its high-rise hotels and resorts.  It has grown tremendously since I was last here in 1970. Unlike Huelva, the city of Malaga charges to take the bus from the port about 2 miles to Plaza de la Marina. From there one can walk to the cathedral, and the Alcazaba Fort, a remnant from when the moors ruled Spain. The view is beautiful. The Renaissance cathedral is nicknamed La Manquita (“one-armed lady”) because one of its towers was curiously left unbuilt. We also took a walk to the Mercado Central de Atarazanas where we had a local beer!
