The Castle of Santa Catalina

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing photos from a trip that I made to the Castle of Santa Catalina, in Malaga. This fortress was originally built in 1624 by King Phillip IV as part of the widespread defences of the city of Malaga. By the early 20th Century, the fortress had fallen into ruins and Manuel Loring, Count of Mieres, decided to have his residence built adjacent to it. The Castle of Santa Catalina is a neo-Arabian style palace which stands majestically in a spectacular position, overlooking the bay of Malaga. Nowadays, Castillo Santa Catalina has been converted into a Historic Hotel, maintaining the luxury and standing of a stately palace, surrounded by gardens and with splendid sea views.

We took the photos in the amazing garden and in the terraces of the palace, and I was there with a fantastic team who fill me with confidence as I always know that things will go well and I’m in good hands – thank you Eva Villar, Gonzalo Machado, Olivia and Julia!

I hope you like the result…
