With a face of tremendous sleep, we present the four in the hotel restaurant Tryp Alameda for breakfast. We went down to reception to meet Daniel and continue with our visit to Malaga. The program of that day was not so intense, since our flight back home early in the afternoon. We start the morning taking a walk through the beach of mercy, a beach on the outskirts of Malaga whose coastline has been recently built. The beach has a length of one kilometer and first thing in the morning you could see people walking with the bicycle or sunbathing.
When I saw the blog trip program, I visited the Automobile Museum It was what least attracted me at first. I am not an engine lover, or anything around it, so to think that we would spend some time between spark plugs and pistons seemed to me to be the most soporific. However, again I was totally wrong, because the Automobile Museum was what I liked most about the visit to Malaga.
The museum is located in the old tobacco factory building, which was restored to house one of the most important collections in the world. Currently, the museum exhibits 90 of the 120 vehicles that it has in perfect state of restoration.
We begin the visit through the Belle Époque room, one of the most impressive, which has cars from the late 19th century until 1914. The oldest car in the collection is from 1898 and is called a horseless car, because in fact it was exactly like a car, but with an engine instead of a horse.
Through the rooms we saw the evolution of the car, from the vehicle as a mere object of ostentation that only the upper classes could access (and in which it was more important to be seen in one than the discomforts involved), until reaching the utility common that we know today. From the car that Mussolini used, the Third Reich, Al Capone, James Bond, Jonh Lennon and in which he gave wax and polished wax the protagonist of karate Kid.
Although none of the four of us were very much in the motor world, we enjoyed the visit and it even made us very short. After taking some photos in the museum, we returned to the van to go to Gibralfaro.
