Another beautiful place to spend an evening in Malaga is at the port / marina. It’s a great place to eat, shop and of course do some night photography. The beach, port and old town are all within a 10 minute walk from each other. If you’re planning a trip to Spain make a stop in Malaga, you won’t be disappointed.

Old Town Malaga
Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the word. It was founded in 770 BC by the Phoenicians and was originally known as Malaka. In addition to its long history, Malaga is also the birthplace of painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and the actor Antonio Banderas.
Day or night the beauty of this city is hard to resist.

I was fortunate to be staying at a hotel that had a rooftop swimming pool. Never did use the pool but it was a perfect spot to capture the sunset over the old town of Malaga.
