Day 9. Farewell Seville, hello again Malaga

We checked out of our lovely Seville apartment mid morning, and walked along to the Santa Justa station for our train back to Malaga.  It was good to be able to spend a few more hours in Malaga, as it’s such an underrated city with most tourists heading off directly from the airport to Marbella or one of the other beach resorts nearby., that’s a mistake, as it’s actually a very attractive city with many fine buildings and a smart marina along its seafront.   The old town is a labyrinth of narrow lanes and small squares with cafes and restaurants to suit every taste and budget.

We headed to the marina and enjoyed a glass or two of wine and a selection of tapas dishes whilst soaking up the last of the Andalucian spring sunshine before heading back to the airport for our late evening flight to the UK.  The flight was on time and two and a half hours later we were heading out to the long stay car park to collect our car and return home.

Our nine day tour of Andalucia was very enjoyable and with pre planning we had managed to visit Marbella, Ronda, Córdoba and Cadiz with ease , using public transport.   It was our first visit to southern Spain but I’m certain it won’t be our only one,  I highly recommend Andalucia especially in the springtime before it becomes unbearably hot and it was such a bonus being there during Holy Week and being able to watch the lavish Semana Santa parade through the old town.

    Next time you go to Andalucia, you have to go to Granada. The Alhambra is there and it is amazing. Plus, it’s the last Spanish city to have free tapas at the bars. (Well it was in 2012, not sure if it’s still true). Great city to visit in July when they have the International music and dance festival, with free performances in the plazas every night.
