OK, IT WASN’T a night at the Museum of Málaga, it was an afternoon. But there was so much to see, I could have spent the night.
Built (1791-1829) as the Customs House, it was a tobacco factory in the 19th century, and then the seat of the city government. It was used during the Franco era and until 2004 as the Subdelegation of the Spanish government, as well as by the National Police.
But none of that mattered to me after I looked out a window and noticed a shop called “Sabor a España” (Tastes Like Spain). So, this is the last about the museum. Tomorrow, I’ll once again be talking about sweets!
BUENO, NO FUE una noche en el Museo de Málaga, fue una tarde. Pero había mucho que ver, podría haber pasado la noche.
Construida (1791-1829) como la Aduana, fue una fábrica de tabaco en el siglo XIX y luego la sede del gobierno de la ciudad. Fue utilizado durante la era de Franco y hasta 2004 como subdelegación del gobierno español, así como por la Policía Nacional.
Pero nada de eso me importó después de mirar por una ventana y notó una tienda llamada “Sabor a España”. Por lo tanto, este es el último sobre el museo. ¡Mañana volveré a hablar de dulces!

buildings that were made to last the centuries! can’t wait to see what sabors a espana you found!
And to think we called our house in San Diego “old”! 1924!
I love the modern roof, on the old building. Nice,
I couldn’t find out what that contemporary addition was made of, but I loved the look. That’s the administrative level.
I love the view out that window … not to mention the treasures inside.
The views from any windows in the neighborhood are charming. Sometimes, I wouldn’t mind living there. Except for the increased level of noise, traffic, and crowds! We do have a lot more bliss where we live.
Nothing says Spanish to me more than a ‘courtyard’ does. And this one is a beaut!
The Roman amphitheatre is just beyond the Alcazaba entrance in that photo. What a city!
Lovely pictures, Mitch!
Thanks. I was pleased considering the washed out light that day.
My next house will have a courtyard.
It’s so common here. Even what look like box-like fishing cottages open into beautiful, naturally lit courtyards. Looking behind Sevilla’s doors was always a surprise. Ditto Málaga (although I haven’t seen inside as many).
I too love museums and feel like sleeping in an exhibit at night when everyone’s gone too see more. Glad you got out mitchell.
There are so many great museums now in Málaga. And most are in these old historic buildings, mostly former private palaces. I need to make a point of doing this more often. One museum each day… and then shopping and food!
That’s one fancy looking tobacco factory! Even the Surgeon General might approve.
It’s a grand building. Have you ever seen Sevilla’s old tobacco factory? Stunning. It’s now home to the University of Sevilla.
