La Alcazaba is the very beginnings of Malaga – built by the Phonecians thousands of years ago. I’m used to seeing things in the US that are only 200-300 years old, but here in Spain everything is thousands of years old! It’s kind of hard to believe half the time.
I see the main wall everyday on my bus ride to school, but ISA took us on a tour of it today. It is absolutely beautiful! And it was only just discovered about 50-60 years ago! It’s been built up a lot in recent years in terms of the visitor center and surrounding shops and etc. It’s very well-preserved and so incredibly cool.
It’s even cooler that it’s right in the middle of downtown Malaga, so there’s a huuuge shopping area right next to it, as well as some of the government buildings and the El Puerto (the port) is visible from it.

Some of us are planning a visit to Gibraltar tomorrow, so look for a post and pictures about that trip. As well, I’ll probably write about Spanish nightlife in the near future, when I get the chance.
