When the Moorish King of Granada decided he deserved an outstanding palace he sent his best architects to Malaga to copy the Moorish Alcazaba…. that is how the Alhambra was born!!!
Most of our clients stopping in Malaga during a cruise will call me so to go and visit Granada and the Alhambra…. Granada is worth the bother of the almost 2 hours drive each way but…. Malaga is a GEM
And Malaga not only is the city that houses this wonderful Moorish Alcazaba and gardens but it is also the city where top Spanish painter Pablo Picasso was born. You may enjoy reading an article today on the New York times with some information on Picasso, the Picasso Museums in the city (two… its birthplace house-museum and the family museum), tapas places offering great deals and other wonders of the city.
One of the not to be missed if visiting Malaga is the wonderful Doll House Museum. It is located at Alamos Street number 32. This museum is a miniature dolls house museum. This private collection comprises over fifty hand-made, unique models, most of which date back to the 19th century. Particularly outstanding is the 19th century Andalusian collection, as well as dolls from the middle of the century and a model freight train. The houses on display run from the oldest exhibit, an 1850 Majorcan house, to a 1970 German dolls house.
