This time I was escorted by an expert tour guide, Victor, who was born and bred in Malaga, has travelled extensively and returned to Malaga. His company We Love Malaga, offers Tapas Tours, Walking Tours, Gourmet Tours and Flamenco Tours.
My drive down had been wet, my walk to meet Victor accompanied by a steady drizzle, but from the second we met not a drop of rain fell on us.
We began with a rooftop view of the new harbour development reminiscent of many small marinas along the front, the twinkling lights giving a prettier view at night.
There´s not much Victor doesn´t know about his city and he shares its foibles as well as its glories.
I´d not even noticed on a previous visit that the cathedral was unfinished, it was designed to be symmetrical and is a twin to Jaen Cathedral.
We bumped into Picasso on a park bench near his birth place
before checking out Malaga´s oldest winery
and then sampling some tapas and a well earned beer.
A flat, friendly easy to explore city that comes to life so much more with some insight and history, humour and tapas - a fabulous mix and fun evening out. If you want to explore Malaga, get to know We Love Malaga.
