Photographer's Note

This is the view of Malaga from the hill above the city, Gibralfaro. In my first day in Spain, I came to Malaga by plane from Bratislava. In the easrly evening I went to Alcazaba. The Moors left posterity the dominating presence of the Castle of Gibralfaro, which is connected to the Alcazaba, the lower fortress and royal residence. Both were built during the Taifa period (11th century) and extended during the Nasrid period (13th and 14th centuries). The Alcazaba stands on a hill within the city. Originally, it defended the city from the incursions of pirates. Later, in the 11th century, it was completely rebuilt by the Hammudid dynasty. Occupying the eastern hillside that rises from the sea and overlooks the city, the Alcazaba was surrounded by palms and pine trees.
There was a bit of case but still you can see on the left the catherdal of the Incarnation. it is very interesting building, if you look carefully you can see many small flat domes as the roof. The building in the center is Ayuntamiento - the City Hall. But what I want to show here is this white stripe on diagonal close to the harbour - this is the pergola known from many photos.
