Malaga was though a really pleasant surprise, especially colourful streets and a cheery Navidad atmosphere. The only downer perhaps being the incredibly polluted beach, with black rubbish tip sand.
It did have a great Moorish alcazaba though, and we enjoyed wandering around under it through the inedible citrus trees and in and out of the hundreds of Christmassy market stalls. Most selling little nativity scene characters and animals. It's like everyone here is obsessed with these dioramas, you can buy literally everything from camel bags to cutlery, all in miniature scale.
We did park a little way out of town and we really had no idea of the huge walk we had to endure, but we got to see a lot of the fore shore, including these awesome public gyms that we keep seeing. As well as a cool olden day galleon in the harbor.
