This weekend we headed to Marbella, but decided we would drive to Malaga city from the airport for the afternoon.  Malaga is a great city, in particular the old town but not many have discovered its delights.  I’ve written before about Malaga here but I’ve decided to add a quick update about the area around the Roman Theatre which has been updated with a new interpretive centre.  This is at the base of the famous Alcazaba which is well wort a visit, like a miniature Granada, though in truth it’s not that small.  The interpretive centre is very good with modern interactive displays and allows a walk through the theatre, and it’s free.  The area around here has had a face lift and the old Bodega El Pimpy has been extended into the square next to the Teatro Roman and it has a great covered tearrace area.  The Bodega is well worth a visit for a good inexpensive meal, a drink and to see the nooks and crannies of the Bodega itself with photographs going back many years.
