Malaga, located on the seaside, was one of my stops during my beautiful Road trip in Andalusia.
Although some people love to walk in the city I’m more a beach person, so I visited Malaga for its Instagram spots that I offer you to discover now in this article:
The Gibralfaro watchtower
You’ll have the best view of Malaga from this place, thanks to its belvedere. You can see the sea, the arenas of the malagueta and in addition the cruise ships, etc. You have to reach it by foot thanks to different places and through beautiful paths.
Paseo del Parque
This passage is a beautiful place for having a walk. It enables pedestrians bu also cyclists to leave from the port and reach the old town. Surrounded by tropical plants and fountains, it’s a haven of peace. An oasis of greenery in the heart of the city!
This citadel was built on the remains of a Roman fortress by the Muslims to protect Granada from Christians. As it’s built on a hill, it also offers incredible views of Malaga. It’s very pleasant to walk around the citadel by its many ramparts.
The Botanical Garden
Every time I visit a city, I have this urge for fresh air and greenery. Botanical gardens are exactly what I need. An enchanting and surprising setting that is well worth the detour. And for the trick, the entrance to the park is free on Sunday from 3.30 pm.
Cale del Moral
I’m not talking about the surrounding area but rather about its coast path with breath-taking views. As you can see in this picture it’s the perfect place to recover and recharge your batteries and enjoy the best the world can offer.
2 places close to Malaga that worth the Journey !
This castle (First picture of this article), rather considered as a monument, was built in honour of Christopher Columbus by a doctor and two masons. It’s not yet very touristic so you can take full advantage of its beauty. Knowing that it has only been built by 3 people in the space of 7 years makes you understand that where there’s a will there’s a way! The Castillo Colomares was one of my favourite stops.
Mijas is one of the most picturesque white villages in Andalusia. It’s located on the mountainside and faces the sea. It has kept the charm and traditions of the past such as its famous taxi donkeys that you won’t find anywhere else. There are many similar white villages such as Estepona (a little lower than Marbella) or Frigiliana (a little higher than Malaga). I suggest you to discover this one because it’s located a few minutes away from the Castillo Colomares by car.
I hope you’ll discover and enjoy this wonderful Spanish region as much as I did! What other Spanish cities would you recommend to visit? If you want to see more pictures and stories about my Road Trip, I invite you to read my previous article or join me on Instagram!
