A Sultry Evening in Malaga

Posted in Europe by Christopher DeWolf

Malaga, Spain

Malaga, a city of nearly a million on Andalucia’s Costa del Sol, has the unfortunate reputation of being run-down. As a result, it’s somewhat off the tourist path, but this might actually be a good thing: beyond the grimy port and the imposing apartment blocks of its suburbs, Malaga has a charming and very convivial core.

    Malaga does not look run down at all – I take it these were taken during your trip to Europe last year. Remember how you seemed bummed by the reaction to Madrid after you posted them in the discussion area (which, by the way, I take it is now defunct)? I must say I have none of those reservations about Malaga – it looks very desirable to visit. Perhaps some cities are just more photogenic than others?

    It’s like the new(-ish) condos on Notre-Dame and Guy in Montreal ( ) – they look terrible in photographs (even in the advertisements for them!) but do not look too bad in real life.

    By the way, sorry I have not posted in a while – due to an e-mail melt down I lost all my saved e-mails including those giving me idiot-proof directions on how to upload photos here (my old bugbear). If anyone has the patience to talk me through in tedious detail, I’d be grateful. I was in Mumbai (everyone there calls it Bombay but I’m afraid it might only be OK for Indians to do that) last week and, althgough I did not take any great photos, I thought I might post osmething at some stage.

    Hi Christopher,

    Nice pictures of Malaga city! Makes me feel like going straight away and have some tapas and wine, preferably Malaga virgen in the old city center.
    Keep up the good work!

    Malaga es una ciudad increible llena de magia por cada esquina. Por cierto, si os gusta el StreetArt y los graffitis los días 28 y 29 de Agosto se celebra el Movistar Street Tour 2010. Podeis ver toda la información en Además si sois socios de Movistar hay varios concursos y a sus clientes les regalan un refresco al llegar.
