Málaga, Andalusia, Spain, one of the most memorable destinations in Spain that will always hold a special place in our hearts! If you’re planning to visit Spain, you have to put Malaga in your itinerary, it has a special and unique charm that will simply mesmerize you.
Located 2,5 hours of train ride from Madrid, Málaga is one of the oldest cities in the world in Andalucía region and it is known as the land of culture, sea, history and fiestas.

As everyone says, first impression matters, AnakJajan had a great first impression for the city, for us, the whole city vibes just scream holiday😍
Málaga is located in southern Spain, on the northern side of the Mediterranean Sea, that explains the amazing landscape and panoramic views. It has a totally different vibes compared to other cities we’ve ever visited in Spain.

Alcazaba of Málaga
Here it is, one of the most famous spots to visit in Málaga, spain. The Alcazaba is a palatial fortification that was built on a hill in the centre of the city, overlooking the port.
Visiting the Alcazaba feels like we travel back to the early 11th century, we’re totally impressed by how well they preserve the historical building, the architecture is sooo beautiful with stunning city and sea view.
During our visit, the Jacaranda flowers were fully bloomed as well, giving us an even more picturesque views with the purple-blueish flowers😍💜

The world famous gallery Centre Pompidou has come to Málaga. The Pompidou art center in Paris is one of the greatest homes of twentieth century art, and now Malaga has it too.
With large glass cube and colorful building, you can easily spot the museum. It’s located within walking distance from Mirador Princess. We must admit that we’re not that artsy kind of person, but we enjoyed our visit there, the artworks are quirky, unique and very interesting.

Our day ended beautifully at this gorgeous El Balneario restaurant located next to the sea. When you’re in Málaga, seafood is a must have. The fresh anchovies grilled over wood fire is a must have, sooo fresh with simple seasoning yet sooo delicious.
Everything was just perfect to end our trip in Malaga, the sea breeze, stunning sunset sky, delicious food. Ahhhh, writing this travel diary makes me miss the charming place even more.
