I was only able to spend a day in the southern Spanish coastal city of Malaga, it was my loss.
Continuously inhabited for more than 2,800 years, the harbor is literally layered in history. The Phoenicians, the Romans, the Moors and since the reconquista in 1487 under Spanish rule.
This view from the port looks out past the modern facility and shopping area to the Catholic palace which is still connected to the Islamic castle, bordered by the Phoenician walls with a Roman amphitheater at its feet.
Also, Antonio Banderas was born there.
