Walking down the street I saw you...I saw you, I fell in love...with you.
“ Hello again, fellow traveler .
Today’s article is a nod to our old website, I wrote it during the confinement in the pandemic “Covid 19” and I did it with great affection to our city and the work we do for and for her, and that’s why I do not want you to miss this post.
I would also like to mention our dear local guide ( Mario, from Hola Lola ) and thank him for continuing to work with us every day to make our beautiful city known.
Don’t forget that always after the storm, the sun rises… “
Today’s protagonist, our beautiful city,
. And I can not fail to emphasize as in the previous post, that it is a destination that has a lot to offer, not only for its climate, its beaches, its cultural and leisure offerings; is that Malaga has a special charm that you breathe in its atmosphere when you walk through its streets.
Montes de Málaga Natural Park
until you reach the Venta del Mirador and observe the incredible views of the coast, admiring to the west the mouth of the Guadalhorce River or to the east with the
Peñon del Cuervo
. Those days are left behind and forgotten by everyday life, studies, work and the endless responsibilities that come when you cross the line of twenty-something…
After a few years with a wonderful family and the professional ambitions of an entrepreneur, a TWIZY crosses our lives, and I find again the charm of my city.
I will never forget that first night when Gema and I said to take a ride with our little Twizy ( the “Uno” as we call it ). We proposed to do the route planned for future Tours, and so we did. We start with the

is when the emotions begin to surface. We continue the tour towards
The Fountain of the Three Graces
a tribute to fertility, once we enter through the
Paseo de la Farola
with the Cube of colors ( Pompidou Museum ) the views of the sea and the marina begin.

(“chubby and stubby”) attracts attention with its guiding light, and once we pass to its right we start our first stop at the Mirador del Muelle Uno. We named the site as the “Skyline of Malaga”, a dazzling view of the city from which we can admire all the splendor of Malaga, and it is here at that moment when we realized how fortunate we Malagueños are to live in this city.
After a few minutes, we set off again in our small electric car with which we were delighted by the sensations that awoke us in that June sunset. Continuing our walk along the Pablo Ruiz Picasso promenade, we saw the beach bars almost full of people and that special smell made us think that it was the ideal time to open our mouths with some “Espetitos de Sardinas”.
The next stop was at a bar in Barrio del Palo . “Pescaito frito”, a “tomatito picao”, and a couple of beers “0,0” was the best option of the night.
Los Baños del Carmen
back along Paseo Marítimo, is the moment when the beauties shudder at the sight of the Malaga Coast on that summer night. The lights,
calling with its light, the smell of the sea, and that ride in the
with the breeze of the night, was the finishing touch to remember that moment when Malaga returned to our lives.
as it did that night for us.
