This is one of my favourite streets in Malaga. After a relaxing lunch in the new port I took a stroll down the first stretch of this established street, running east from the bullring.
In the 19th century it was an upscale residential area. Now, it’s in the shadow of some large 70s blocks, but still retains its unique look and feel – some properties are in ruins, others are being renovated, whilst many are commercial premises like independent stores, clinics etc. However, some are still private homes, with lush, well manicured gardens.
I didn’t get to stroll far as I had work to get back too, but another time I will post more images of the interesting properties and architectural details. There is a real mix of classic and pastiche, making for a fascinating walk. The sea and the promenade is only one street south, and also close by is the English Cemetery, well worth a visit. It receives no public support, so take a moment if you are in the area to visit and make a donation; they also organise late night spooky history tours too, which are fun and informative.
