My mom has visited Malaga probably five times. I say probably, because none of has track of exactly how many times. Malaga has a little bit of everything. A cute town with a lot of historic sites all very close to each other, authentic (and inauthentic) tapas bars and a lovely beach.
On the first day we visited the Alcazaba fortress. For someone like me who adores attractions that transport you back in time, it was the perfect start of a vacation. Walking through allies of orange trees on tile floors that have been made many centuries ago really make you feel in touch with Moorish and Roman history. It was still early in the in the season so it felt like we almost had the place to ourselves.
That first evening I spent way too much time in the rose garden taken pictures. Even my poor mom, who is practically a gardener and obsesses about flowers on a daily basis, started to become a little inpatient with me.
I have a less overwhelming chunck of photos left to edit, so I hope it won't take too long before my next Malaga post. See you very soon, friends!
