Malaga became a thriving port. First came the Phoenicians followed the Romans and later by the Moors. Then in the 19th century the sweet Malaga wine became one of Europe’s most popular drinks… Until Phylloxera ravaged the vineyards in 1876.
“Hotel Gibralfaro” Is a parador with beautiful accommodations. This top floor swimming pool offers a beautiful view of the Mediterranean and the portside facility.
We walked down the footpath between our parador and the remodeling of an ancient building- no sign- to view the busy portside- But then it began to rain and we ran back up the hill to the bar.
This lovely bar was a bit crowded because of the rain and the tourists mobbing in to get a drink and get dry.
It also was a lighter eating habitat compared to the major dining room and slightly better food and quieter.
The dining room was larger than this but it was the only picture I could find.
You can’t quite see this view of Malaga Costa-Del-Sol from the hotel, but it’s not far away and if the weather’s good you might thoroughly enjoy it.
Unless you hate hot beaches and lots of noise, body traffic and some other traffic!
“But and exquisite area”
“Malaga Gibralfaro” the front of the hotel, invites patrons to relax after eating or imbibing to sit and enjoy the view, which- we did.
