    We are very fortunate to live so close to one of the most beautiful cities in Andalucia, if not all of Spain........ Málaga City, beautiful at any time of the year but never more so than at this autumnal season. Suffering from cabin fever and just a touch stir crazy, due to our van being off the road for prolonged repairs, we treated ourselves to a “city break” last weekend.
    Malaga City is much by-passed by both the motorway network and the tourist heading for places further west, Torremolinos, Fuengirola and further east, Nerja, Frigliana etc., with few taking the time to visit this lovely city. If you should visit the Costa del Sol in the future, take the time to stop for a couple of days, you will not regret the time spent here.
    Some more photos on my album, if you choose to look further.

    When you click on "Post Reply" a new window opens showing a text box, above which are some icons. Choose the paperclip, click on it and a new window opens which allows you to add photos to your post. You should be able to work it out from there..... if I can do it, anybody can:Rofl1:

    We were lucky enough to see that sort of thing in Nerja ( a must visit place ) this great noise erupted and this procession arrived like a drunken ship in a gale, it swayed through the town and by the will of god made it through the doors of the church.

    Really spectacular.

    In Malaga and Seville every day of Semana Santa lots of processions, so many that timetables and routes are printed.

    As you say very spectacular and the skill involved in manoeuvering those massive floats through narrow and low church entrances and then through narrow streets is impressive.

    Processions not limited to these two cities, similar activity in every city, village and hamlet across Spain in Holy Week and during the rest of the year on particular saints day. All carried out with the same degree of fervour "tronos " only limited by the size of the parish and budget available. Spectacular in the large cities.
    One of the biggest events, outside Holy Week will be on 8 December, Fiesta de la Inmaculada when Spain will be SHUT for the day.

    The system allows 5 pictures to your post, play around with it to get them all on the one line.

    I saw them practising in Jerez as we came back from dinner, they passed right by our hotel. Very impressive.

    The view from Castillo de Gibralfaro is amazing, we walked up but there is a bus as it is a bit of a hike if its hot.Nice little museum and a small cafe.
