It´s been a while since I had a travel post on Fyday Fridays so here are some snippets from the top of Benalmadena´s mountain, a bustling town about 12 meters from the city of Malaga, Spain. It was a foggy and cloudy morning when we went there( not really the perfect moment for sightseeing) so I only had a hazy photograph of Malaga from the top of the mountain.
And of course, some pics for posterity. ;) Malaga being in the south has a very mild climate compared to where I live in the north. Though it can get quite chilly in the early mornings, there´s nothing like a toasty and colorful scarf to keep you warm and then keep later in your bag when the temperature rises later in the day.
I highly recommend that you visit this place especially during the sunny days. The view is spectacular even on a cloudy day! As for getting here, it´s easy. Take the cable car, that is, if you aren´t afraid of heights and aren´t claustrophobic, take note of the view down below while you´re at it and you´re on the top in 20 minutes or so. If you are claustrophic, I think I saw a dirt road down below. :)
Near the bird sanctuary, there were small rooms with green doors which are perfect backdrops for picture taking. See?
If the weather´s nice and not too windy and rainy, they usually have a bird exhibition ( falcons and other kinds of big birds) here at 1pm. Too bad we didn´t get to see this because we had to go to Antequera but I´m sure it´ll be worth watching especially if you love exotic birds. Well, that´s another good reason to come back here again in the near future. ;)
They also have a small bullring which made me ask how will they bring the bulls up on the mountains when I only see a tiny dirt road below? Oh well, I´ll never get to know that unless I´ll get to see how it´s done, hehe. By the way, are you seeing the lion pendant I´m wearing? When I saw it, I had to have it because it reminds me of my Dad who passed away eight years ago. He was a Leo and whenever I wear this I always think of him. He was a lovable chap who had a HUGE personality! :)
