Best Street Art in MALAGA

Like in many other cities, too, the best pieces of street art do not welcome you in the busy center of Malaga. You have to venture a couple of kilometers west to the formerly a bit sad district of Soho where now art’n’culture amazes you at every corner – literally.

Street Art by Belin in Malaga
Málaga is the hometown of Pablo Picasso – and it shows at every corner. This hommage was painted by Miguel Ángel Belinchón aka Belin.

Guide to CADIZ – the oldest city in Europe

I’m so happy to guide you to Cadiz, according to archeological founds, not only the oldest city in Spain but in all of Europe.
