Starting our walk at the fashion street!

Málaga’s history spans about 2,800 years, making it one of the oldest cities in Europe and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. According to most scholars, it was founded about 770 BC.

I was caught up by the colours of the buildings and their fancy balconies.

This important cultural infrastructure and the artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of Málaga as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture.

The painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and the actor Antonio Banderas were born in Málaga.

The dove story is caputred at Parque de Malaga also known as Paraue de le Alameda, a botanical garden right in city centre of Malaga. .This park was opened in 1897 and has some wonderful old trees. Doves and Parakeets have build their nests in tree hollows.

I was in Malaga (a city in south of Spain) for a long weekend trip. It’s  a very popular tourist destination for Scandinavian people due to the perfect location and weather conditions. The tourist season is yet to start and hence the flight was full of senior citizens but of course there were some exceptions 😀

I hope you like the tree and the story.
