From Picasso To Tapas In Malaga, Spain

By Artur Ciesielski | Places

Now into our first full day in Malaga, the city is located in the costa del sol. I find this city to pleasant, even charming, clean, right sized, accessible, touristy, but not too much – and kinda fun.

I can understand why people say skip it, but certainly not after 1 day. It deserves more time than a typical layover affords.

Just look at that sun drenched view: bright and crisp.

The mercado – market – is divided into three sections: 1. meat 2. fish 3. fruit, vegetables, nuts and stuff like that.  The fish were the most amazing sight – so many, so fresh and so much life in this section.

Lo Gueno – first tapas bar on the tour – a more traditional place.

Los Gatos has to be the funnest place for food and drink. We stumbled on this place our first day in Malaga.

Wanting to order something the waiter said – “we don’t have this”, “have this” pointing to the ox tail stew. This happened three times before I succumbed to his wish and went for the ox tail stew which turned out the be a good choice.

Later on the food tour this was our second stop, but this time we got to go behind the bar where the action happens.
