I am going to try and do a weekly trip snapshot of areas we have visited. I will start with a trip we just returned from. Hopefully this information will be useful to those traveling in the area.
Fly, Drive or Train?
98 chf RT ($105) from Zurich to Spain on Air Berlin
A must see in the Area?
is a resort area, really built up. The beaches are a must. Golfing is also a must. Gibraltar
is near by and is owned by the British. There is a strong presence of British in the area but most Spaniards did not speak English. We had heard Gibraltar was a traffic nightmare, so we didn’t even attempt to go. The Rock of Gibraltar
is a famous landmark and you may want to check out. We had planned on taking a ferry
to Morocco for the day but had a medical emergency. We will just have to make another trip to Morocco 🙂
is for sure a must see, about a 2 hour drive from Malaga. Seville is a charming Spanish city with beautiful architecture, sites, great food, & of course shopping. I’d never seen so many horses and buggys in one city. I highly recommend it as a way to see the city, especially if you have kids with tired legs. Use your bargaining power for the buggy ride. The city has a going rate of 50 Euros for an hour buggy ride but there so many you can bargain your way down.
The Alhambra, is a fortress & Palace built by the Moorish in the city of Granada. It’s about a 2 hour drive but well worth, just to see the incredible architecture and grounds. Tickets are limited daily so it is recommended to pre-purchase, especially in high season. Adults are 13 Euros and kids 12 and under are free.
| Churros & Chocolate, a definite must
Just a little snapshot of what Malaga and the surrounding areas have to offer. We were only there 1 week and would like to go back. If you’ve been to this area, I’d love to hear your recommendations.
