MalagaIn Malaga you will breath such a sparkling Spanish atmosphere! Maybe for the sea air of Costa del Sol, or maybe for the tasty tapas you will eat :) Anyway, in Malaga you absolutely have to visit the Gibralfaro castle, one of the most popular attractions, and the Cathedral, also called Manquita because of the incomplete right tower. If you have time in advance and you are an art lover, don’t miss the Picasso Museum!
The experience at the airport was tiresome but our jovial driver Haji, made up for it with his good humor during the long drive. Being the biggest city in Morocco, Casablanca is gritty. I’d say a confluence of Cairo’s Arabic essence and Mexico City’s energy. It is also well known as the city encircling the famous Hassan II Mosque.
We visited Malaga very briefly, mainly to enjoy a “fishy” meal by the beach. Like people tend to do in Europe when their pockets are tight, we went to a beach destination… but in the middle of December! Who cares about high season! The beach can also feel great on winter days. According to some, Torremolinos is the place that “used to be” but no longer is. But allow us to disagree. Although the majority of the people in town were old couples in search of a ray of sun (we could tell most of them were from Northern Europe) Torrremolinos is still a place that is “in” for the simple fact that it is a very pleasant sea-side town. You can easily fill your time taking walks, dipping your toes in the Mediterranean (but not much more than the toes this time of year!) and eating the typical fritura malagena, which is a traditional local dish consisting of assorted fried fresh fish.
Ronda: Ronda, a beautiful hill village, built atop a gorge is a must visit destination in Andalusia. A couple of hours train journey from Granada, Ronda is quaint yet dramatic. While most prefer it to be a day trip, we stayed here for couple of nights to relax and unwind. The town is most famous for its 3 historic bridges built over the gorge. It provides mesmerizing views from the edge of the valley. You can start from the top and come down towards the old bridge on left covering multiple points enroute. The other trek is down towards Puente Nuevo, or as we did, take a fixed price 15 Euro taxi down to the foot of the bridge.
The city of Fes is even more exotic than it sounds. The withering walls of the old settlement complete their promise of transporting you to the world of Middle Eastern civilization that thrived during their gilded history. Walking in Medina streets is an assault on the senses, a warren of narrow lanes and covered bazaars bursting with aromatic food stands, craft workshops, mosques, the cloud of incense wafting around your nostrils and an endless parade of people. The festival of Sufi Culture hosts a series of events each year including talks and debates, and some spectacular concerts held in the garden of the Batha Museum with Sufi musicians from across the world. If you are into soulful music than this is the event you must mark you presence on.
