Pictures - Spain: Malaga, Mijas, Ronda, Barcelona

 

Here are some pictures taken in Spain: Malaga, Mijas, Ronda. I will add more pictures, including photos of Barcelona 

Malaga - photos show the Cathedral and the old section of Malaga. Our host is shown cooking paella for us.


 





Mijas - hillside cascading picturesque town in the Malaga area. The town has whitewashed buildings in multi- layers, connected by narrow winding streets.




Ronda - ancient mountaintop place with a deep gorge that separates the town. Rainy and chilly up here unlike sunny Malaga. Hemingway liked this place and used a local story of people being flung from the cliff in his For Whom the Bell Tolls. He also watched bullfights in Ronda.
