⭐⭐⭐ Pensión El Portillo is located conveniently near the Mezquita-Catedral, one of the major tourist hotspots in Córdoba, in the old town. The alleys around the area are small and winding, thus making the place peaceful and quiet, even though there is a road just nearby (with bus routes). When we made the booking via […]

Even if you are not into history, the great Mezquita-Catedral is a must-see place in Córdoba. The 14 400 sq meter building has seen it’s fair share of the Spanish history, as it was first built as a small church by the Visigoths during the Roman reign. When the Muslims conquered the Iberian peninsula, the Caliph Abd […]

It is time to say adios to the Costa del Sol and head inland, to the historic city of Córdoba, a city which has stood there on the banks of river Guadalquivir at least since 8th Century BC. Slightly longer than, let’s say, Helsinki for instance. At first we planned to take a bus from Málaga, […]

The Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga is definitely one of the most well known landmarks of Málaga, so of course we had to pay a visit to it. And I really mean pay as the entrance to the cathedral itself costs 6€ and if you, like us, want to stretch your leg muscles and […]

There is a lot of Moorish influences in the older buildings in Andalucia, and Mercado de Atarazanas, the central market in Málaga is definitely one testament to the Muslim architecture. We have been to Mercado de Atarazanas during our previous trip to Málaga as well, but didn’t quite remember how fabulous the place actually is. […]

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ As it is the Eurovision week, we have a question for you all. What has more costume changes and more drama than the Eurovision Song Contest? Well, a proper flamenco show of course! And this is just what we witnessed in the evening at Taberna Pepe Lopez! You get to read all about the […]
