In some sense, Malaga can be considered one of those cities surrounded by seven hills, which has historicaly provided good vantage points for the task of drawing panoramas. One of the most used ones is the Cerro de los Angeles, northwest of the city center and about 1500 m. away from it. I found inspiring climb up there to draw the panorama, and I must say that from his hillside covered with olive trees, the city seems much more serene than at street level, however the buzz of traffic is still well present.
It was fun to imagine my illustrious predecessors sitting on the same rock where I was, drawing their views long ago, let's say about two or two and a half centuries. Not to mention the many photographers who have also been rewarded with a beautiful image after the climb.
There is much more Malaga to the West that has not been captured in my drawing, and that hopefully I will sketch on a next visit to the hill.
