There's More to Malaga

I posted last weekend about what I did on my recent trip to Malaga.  However, there's more to the city than just a beautiful coast.

Malaga is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso.  I visited the Picasso museum in Barcelona a couple years ago so I didn't feel like I was missing anything by not going to the one in Malaga.  I did walk past Pablo many times each day as he sits in one of the historic squares that was a 2-minute walk from the B&B where I stayed.

Malaga has some beautiful Spanish architecture.


There are Moorish ruins.

Not to mention some fantastic food!  There are a couple vegetarian/vegan restaurants that I stayed at a vegan B&B (Veganbnbspain) that served the most amazing breakfasts (made fresh every morning by Emma). And we're not talking some bread and a jar of jam. These were real, delicious and filling vegan breakfasts!

One of the salads at Alcazabilla
Homemade raw granola with strawberries, strawberry-banana smoothie, homemade almond milk.
Chocolate-chia pudding with bananas, fresh-squeezed orange juice with ginger.

Tofu, tomatoes and spinach scrambled on toast with fresh-squeezed lemonade.

And, like every city, there are some quirky odd bits to be found.

I didn't go inside as I figured watching burgers float around a tank of water wouldn't be very interesting.

I don't know if I'll get the chance to go back before I leave the continent in a few months but I certainly wouldn't mind spending some more time there!
