Hay magia a la vuelta de cada esquina – There is Magic Around Every Corner -Nirja and Frigliana, Spain

There is Magic Around Every Corner

One of the many good things about Málaga, the capital of the Costa del Sol, Spain is that there are lots of towns nearby, full of interesting things. The day after arrival into Málaga, I headed out by bus to Nirja, en route to Frigliana. I heard from a photographer friend that it’s a good place for photographers to wander. Frigliana has received awards for its beauty and conservation.

The ceramic mosaics are dotted around the old part of town. These mosaics were designed by Pilar Garcia Miilan and help to narrate the story of the Moorish uprising in the area.

Frigliana is not in my Spain guidebook so I’m convinced it must be special. I lucked out with an overcast day, a perfect umbrella for this all white, quaint town that has the old part of town of Moorish origin and the newer part which is built more in the traditional style of a white Andalucian village. I wandered and enjoyed the contrast from busy Málaga and found magic around every corner.

If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
