Andalusia 1973, Malaga and Mijas

In the year 1973 we were students at Turku University and my husband attended the study tour to Andalusia in Spain. He sent postcards to me and my sister.
The following year it was my turn to attend the study tour
and then it was a trip round Eastern Finland :(
I was really bitter about that.
I didn't send any postcards ...

This was their program.

20. - 21. 5. 1973
 Malaga and Mijas

Paseo del Parque
Park Walk
My friend Helena also sent her regards.


The Alcazaba - Strong Castle

La Alcazaba is Malaga's most important landmark, and overlooks the city from a hilltop inland. It is one of two Moorish fortresses in the city, the other being the Castillo de Gibralfaro, situated above. The Alcazaba is the best-preserved Moorish fortress palace in Spain.

Marina fountain, El Cenachero
Sculptor Jaime F.Pimental

El Cenachero is an important symbol for Málaga. It was a peculiar kind of fisherman, who sells his fresh fishes in the street (sometimes called “fishmonger”). Jaime Pimental immortalized this figure as a statue in 1968 and it is next to Málaga's port, at Plaza de la Marina.

Mijas - The White Village

Typical street in Mijas.


One of the jewels of the Costa del Sol is this beautiful little village of Mijas.
Many artists and writers have made it their home, enjoying the benefits of an excellent all year round climate, without being part of the busier, more commercial coastal towns just 7 kilometres down the mountain side.
