Málaga is a really lovely city. It's full of picturesque squares, narrow alleyways bustling with shops and cafés and beautiful buildings. There's a photo opportunity on every corner.
After some souvenir shopping we popped in to the cathedral. The cathedral is a Renaissance style building built between 1528 and 1782. Originally designed to have two towers, a lack of funds meant only one was completed and the cathedral now has the nickname 'La Manquita' or 'one armed woman.' I think it's charming!
I'm not a religious person in any shape or form, but I do love religious spaces. I think the sense of calm and tranquility in churches is just so lovely, not to mention the awe-inspiring architecture. They're the perfect places to sit quietly and reflect and appreciate. Wandering around the cathedral was a perfect little pocket of cool tranquility in the midst of the hot bustling city.
Our hotel was built on top of some roman ruins, and I love that they've made a feature of it. Not only is the floor above glass for dizzying views below, but they've installed a little walkway so guests can explore below.
I also thought it'd be the perfect backdrop for posing in my red 'Jennifer' dress!
Then it was off to dinner of seafood, rioja and sangria in the balmy Spanish evening air.
