The monster of Alta Street in the capital of Malaga

Mysterious monster in MalagaThis story has reached our days as if it were a legend. The event that has been told from parents to their children  occurred on February 4, 1966.

According to the article to which I have had access, a neighbour of number 23 of Alta Street in the centre of Malaga yelled  that she had seen a monster.

  •   I saw a monster!, yelled the neighbour in panic.

Neighbours and those passing by who came to her yell asked amazed:

  • How? A monster? What was that like?

The neighbour responded in shock:

  • Yeah, a monster. I was cooking the food and when I turned I saw a being with bulging eyes and long brown hair. It had a big head like a 7-year-old boy, a big mouth from ear to ear and 2 fangs.
  • What did it do? asked those who were there with curiosity and wonder.
  • It threatened me not to scream and I was afraid it would come over me, so I ran away. I could see that terrible monster leaping and climbing up to the house next door, disappearing from my sight.

A monster in Malaga?

The house where the mysterious being was supposed to hide was an empty and ruined building. The neighbours decided to break down the door of the abandoned building and investigate inside; without luck, because they found nothing. Some attributed the vision to an animal, probably a lost domestic monkey or a large cat.

There were those who said they heard a noise and saw a shadow move quickly. What did this lady really see?

Two days after the event, a journalist interviewed the protagonist of the story. She was still in a state of panic, unable to sleep or eat.

Where did this happen?

Alcazaba old photoThe legend of the ghost of the Alcazaba

One of the most mysterious and ancient stories of Malaga took place in the Alcazaba. In the past, in its interior there were low class houses, known as the Alcazabilla area.

The story begins in the summer of 1936, during which excavations were being carried out in La Alcazabilla. Small figures were found with elongated nose and hat. They identified them with the elves from the stories told to the children at that time. Would they have anything to do with what happened next?

The photo on the right shows what the entrance to the Alcazaba was like at that time (the most current image at the foot of the article).

The first sight

After sunset and on her way home, a loud noise startled one of the neighbours. She looked up and could see a large shadow. She felt observed, the shadow was in one of the ancient fortified towers. The woman, in shock, told about it to other neighbours and they went out to see what was going on. All of them witnessed such a dark apparition. The figure, after being observed, disappeared, not before dropping a stone at the feet of the neighbours who had gathered there. They continued to discuss the event until late at night, it was something extraordinary.

Mysterious Stones Rain

The next day and around 11:00 a. m. a rain of stones started. The origin was not clear but many neighbours said that most of them came from house number 24, abandoned after the death of its last tenant.

The rain of stones lasted all day long, at nightfall that mysterious figure returned to the scene. This time there were sounds of lamentation and chains as attested by those present. The neighbours fearfully decided to go after that strange being, but it disappeared.

newspaper about ghost in Malaga
The news of the ghost of the Alcazaba appeared in the local newspaper.

Another day passed and the next morning the rain of stones returned. The phenomenon wounded 3 women who were there. This time and with the threatening face that the events were taking, the neighbours decided to raid the abandoned house from which the stones were supposed to come.

They threw the door down and as they entered, they saw that the keys were locked from the inside and there was no hole large enough for a child to escape, which would exclude the presence of someone physical. The belief that it was a ghost was gaining more and more followers.

A ghost in Malaga?

children in AlcazabaWith the door ajar after the attempt to hunt the menacing creature, there were many curious people who looked out. This was the case of Jaime Morales, a boy who, to show his courage in front of the group of friends, decided to enter the house alone. This kid affirmed seeing the ghost, said he was dressed like a normal person. The boy wanted to reach him but received a brick while the figure fled through a window. This window was not large enough that no one could pass through, which added even more mystery to the story.

Finally, the event took on importance to the point where the guards went to the site to search the whole place. They couldn’t find anyone or anything suspicious.

The ghost stopped appearing and became part of the many legends of Malaga.

Nowadays, and with a completely reformed environment, there are still security guards who claim to be witnesses at times of a dark figure that walks around the Alcazaba and gets lost behind the corners, noises of stones that seem to be thrown and screams that resound in the silence of the night without a concrete origin.

Will the ghost of the Alcazaba still visit the place? Would it be the former neighbour already deceased, someone linked to the past of such an imposing monument that refuses to leave, or the joke of some boy who never was caught?

Poltergeist in Malaga, paranormal events at Cister street

In this famous street in Malaga you could find the offices of the well-known publishing house Plaza & Janes. Nobody could have expected that this place would become part of the mysterious stories of Malaga in 1991, but so it was. We are going to know a little more about the case and why many Malaga residents remember this event with intrigue and curiosity.

plaza-janes-malaga-poltergeist
 I was able to rescue the old sign for the old offices.

María Luisa was a worker who, like every afternoon, went to a place close to this publishing house to have coffee on her break. As he said she could hear loud noises of furniture and books falling to the ground coming from this publishing house. This surprised her because they had not even opened yet, although she didn’t think much of it. She didn’t know what was really going on inside the house.

What happened inside the publishing house?

It was June 6,1991, several employees were meeting inside. As they testified, things began to happen that no one could explain. They saw all the furniture moving from one place to another and the objects flying out. Ashtrays that violently exploded into a thousand pieces when they reached the wall and even a knife could be seen stuck in a subsequent visit.

Employees rushed away from such a sinister spectacle as a multitude of objects rushed into them, from staplers to pens.

Maria Luisa, who was inside the cafe, could see the multitude crowding in front of the editorial. The curiosity made her come out and see what was going on and she could see how the workers came out of the interior terrified, that it was totally chaotic, as if it were an earthquake.

Over the years, the editorial vanished and many businesses passed through this building, including the VANS store. As they commented, workers of the same one have experienced diverse events without explanation, falling of objects, sensation of a presence… but nothing comparable to what happened in the editorial Plaza & Janés.

There are witnesses who affirm that the police went to the place, however they say they do not find reports that prove the participation.

Without a doubt something happened in that Malaga editorial.

The case of the murdered child

It was 1913,6 pm and Manuel Sanchez Dominguez was playing like so many other days in front of the Pascualini cinema doors, in Calle Cordoba.

Manuelito, as he was affectionately called, had two brothers, one too small that had to stay with his mother and the other who was not with him at the time of his disappearance. It was not uncommon for Manuelito to sneak into the cinema occasionally to see a movie, but he was never coming back too late.

Time passed and Manuelito did not return. The parents, who had been selling hazelnuts in front of the cinema, alerted the guard. It was not normal for him to be absent for so long, and as the night fell, fears that some tragedy might have occurred grew stronger and stronger.

They find the body

Three days later, children playing in the swamp would find the dead body, he had a cut behind one of hir ears and it looked like his blood had been drawn.

news murder of children

Time passed without further news, it was a few months in which fear had taken over the families. It seemed dangerous for the children to go out alone for playing in the street.

After 6 months without any hint, police received a tip of someone who had been talking about the case in a tavern while drunk. He was captured and through him they reached his accomplice, it was’ El Moreno’ and ‘El Trapero’. They both ended up confessing the murder and also claimed to have been paid a large sum of money. it was a request from someone for bringing the blood of a child to a meeting point where they saw only a black carriage. Both were sentenced to death, but the person from the black carriage was never caught.

Children killer in Malaga

The belief that drinking a child’s blood could treat illnesses such as tuberculosis was widespread among the upper classes of the day. They were also the only ones who could afford to pay the high prices that certain illegalities cost and, as happens today, they were one step ahead of the law. Rumours in this case point to the fact that the wealthy aristocrat involved was the bullfighter Rafael Gómez Brailey, who suffered from this disease and died by the end of the same year.

These are just a few of the many stories that exist in Malaga, a land of mysteries. Next Halloween if you like I’ll bring more.

 

All about time change in Malaga and Spain

In Spain there are two time changes, one in March and one in October. Know when and why we change our clocks and what is the time difference between Malaga and UK.

When do the clocks go back in October?

When is the time change in Spain?The clocks go back on the night leading up to the last Sunday in October. In 2017 the change will be early in the morning from Saturday 28 to Sunday 29 October.

The exact time the time changes is at 3:00 a. m., which will change to 2:00 a. m. So from then on it will get dark and dawn earlier.

Therefore from the last Sunday in October the clock will be moved backward by one hour. We now have the well-known winter time.

The official regulation of daylight saving time would not come into effect until 1981. It was then established the hour change would be on the last Sunday in March and last Sunday in September, although the latter would eventually change in 1996 to the last Sunday in October.

When and how is the time change in March to daylight saving or summer time?

In March, the clock change in Spain is in the early morning from Saturday to the last Sunday of the month. In 2018 it will be the night of Saturday the 24th to Sunday the 25th of March.

The clock change in March at 2:00 am, will change to 3:00 am. From that Sunday, dawn and dusk will arrive later, so it is called summer time.

Why do the clocks change in Spain?

The first clock change proposal came from the UK with the aim of saving electricity on the longest days of the year. In 1918, the so-called ‘daylight saving’ was approved worldwide.

In Spain however, this decision was not taken unilaterally. During the civil war, the two parties at war had different timings. This clock difference would be unified at the end of the war.

The official regulation of daylight saving time would not come into effect until 1981. It was then established the hour change would be on the last Sunday in March and last Sunday in September, although the latter would eventually change in 1996 to the last Sunday in October.

Why is the time zone in Spain wrong?

The time zone in Spain should correspond to others like United Kingdom, Portugal or the Canary Islands due to its geographical location.

On March 16,1940 and under a dictatorship, the clocks were set at 12 pm instead of 11 pm. But why did this happen?

According to a report of that time it was to be in accordance with other European countries, but it seems that it was more of a gesture towards Berlin. This change is something England and France also did, although at the end of the war England returned to its natural time zone, while France and Spain did not.

What is the time difference between UK and Malaga or Spain?

Spain and Malaga are 1 hour ahead of the United Kingdom. In Spain only Canary Islands have the correct time zone.

In a near future is possible that Malaga and UK will share the same time zone, when it happens I will be here to tell you.

Why does it rain dust in Malaga? All about muddy rain

A mudstorm has been predicted for today in the province of Malaga. Rain dust is a phenomenon that confuses some of you, so let’s clear up all the doubts about how and why it happens.

No, it doesn’t happen because that day you decide to wash the car, other factors are involved.

What is the rain dust and when does it happen?

This typical dust rain (also called muddy or red rain) is a curious meteorological phenomenon occurring in the Mediterranean. No, it doesn’t happen because that day you decide to wash the car, other factors are involved.

In another article I talked about the difference between terral and sub-Saharan wind. This wind has a lot to do with the phenomenon, and is that for mud rain to happen there must be two conditions, dust particles suspended in the atmosphere, a wind strong enough to bring them to the mainland and rain.

Sub-saharan wind

This phenomenon can occur all year round but is characteristic of the summer months. It is not usual, however, that it happens during the winter months.

How long does it last? Dust suspension in the atmosphere can last from 24 to 60 hours before it begins to disappear.

70% of the world’s dust comes from the Sahara desert

Where does the dust come from?

As you may have deduced, the dust comes straight from the Sahara. The wind and rain give us a little bit of this desert on our vehicles and streets. Not only makes dirt, this powder provides nutrients to the soil and oceans.

car after rain dust

Minerals, bacteria, spores and pollen are suspended along with sub-Saharan dust and sand. Together they manage to overcome great distances to reach the most unlikely places, such as under your sofa or the interior of the European continent thousands of miles away. 70% of the world’s dust comes from the Sahara desert, so you can get an idea.

Beat post-vacation blues and avoid depression after your holiday

During the holidays everything is perfect. Good weather and the beach in Malaga help you to relax and forget the routine. When the holidays are over, the well-known post-vacation blues may appear. Let’s see what it’s all about and how to avoid and beat it.

Post-vacation blues

Post-vacation blues can be a major or minor issue depending on how intense and long the vacation experience was.

¿What is the meaning of post-vacation blues?

Post-vacation blues is a mood that someone who comes home after a long trip might feel, usually after the holidays.

This syndrome is not experienced by everyone, but an important number of people can feel it after a sharp contrast between holidays and the return to routine.

Post-vacation blues can be a major or minor issue depending on how intense and long the vacation experience was. Jet lag can increase that feeling, which is often associated with crying after vacation, fatigue, boredom, nostalgia, anxiety or post-vacation depression in some cases.

post-vacation-blues

5 ideas for avoiding or beating post-vacation blues

There are many ways to avoid suffering this dramatic emotional change after returning home from your holiday in Malaga. Some are more recommendable than others and it will depend exclusively on you taking one or another measure.

In any case, the sensation of postvacation blues lasts a few days, in the worst cases we can talk about weeks. You can also beat this feeling.

If you manage to make your day-to-day life attractive, you will not only avoid post-vacation blues but gain quality of life.

Avoid monotony for the rest of the year

If you live during the rest of the year in a less monotonous way you won’t notice that great contrast with the holidays. It can be difficult especially if you have a stressful job, although there are techniques to achieve it.

If you manage to make your day-to-day life attractive, you will not only avoid post-vacation blues but gain quality of life.

Joining the gym, going for a run, walking or reading among many other activities can help you live a less monotonous life. In short, a routine that is varied enough not to be boring and that contributes with something else after a hard working day.

Relive feelings with memories and souvenirs

In the living room you can share your memories and experiences with the family. Looking at souvenirs or photos taken during the holidays will help beating post-vacation blues.

Those photographs you took in Ronda, your first swim in the sea, that walk you loved so much… What is your favorite memory?

Strolling the sea shore

Share your trip on social networks

Although most people usually share their trip in real time, don’t forget to leave a lot of photos and experiences for sharing when you return.

Sharing your photos on social networks or helping those who are going to visit Malaga with your experiences is part of the ritual. You’ll feel as if your journey is not over yet.

Come back a couple of days in advance

It’s not a bad idea, actually, it’s something I usually do myself. Coming home a couple of days in advance and not planning to work just the day after your arrival. This will help in avoiding having post vacation anxiety.

Planning the next vacation

One thing that helps and is usually a fairly common practice is to plan your next vacation ahead of time. In addition to improving your mood, you’ll make sure you’ll have availability on all reservations you make.

norwegian-airline

Make a detailed plan of everything you would like to do the next visit will help beating your post-vacation blues.

Follow our blog or social networks

If you’re thinking on coming back, why not following us? It’s a good idea for your memories to pop up every time you read one of our news stories.

We also provide ideas for your next visit, so why not following us?

Something to remember when your vacation is over

Remember, your job is what allowed you to go on vacation. A lifetime of unlimited vacations even though it may sound very tempting is not desirable and would end up affecting you negatively.

If you really miss your visit to Malaga, why not coming back for a weekend? You could discover what this city is like during the winter, or see what other months can offer. There are numerous deals for weekend getaways throughout the year.

Finally, I would like to add that a distinction must be made between post-vacation blues and sadness at the end of the holiday. We all suffer from the latter and it’s normal.

The famous snow in Malaga the 3rd in February in 1954 is in the memory of many locals. One day when they woke up with snow covering the streets up to 1 meter deep.

Locals enjoying the morning throwing snow balls.

This situation is very strange to happen and before 1954 the only notice about this happening again goes back to 1882. The temperature registered the famous snow day was between 0,5ºC and 5ºC.

Those who were young by that date have very funny memories of the day. A free school Wednesday by surprise when they could enjoy the day by throwing snow balls and a cinema afternoon without homework.

nieve-guadalmedina-malaga
Guadalmedina river in the morning was a picture more likely from Nordic countries than from southern Spain.

Snow reached other municipalities in Malaga like Marbella and Estepona.

Is it likely to snow in Malaga again?

It would be a very strange success that the snow weather from 1954 happens again. This week could it snow but from 300m above the sea level.

It does exist the possibility of snow over the Malaga Mountains during the next days.

In an exceptional situation there could be snowy roads connecting the interior villages with the coast. I recommend to pay attention to the weather forecast if you are driving this week.

Malaga is increasingly attractive and is continually adding new projects to make the capital of the Costa del Sol a truly cosmopolitan city, one example are the new shops at Malaga port. This trend is already underway for many years.

Pier 1 Malaga port

We remember those days when we passed by Malaga on the way to or from the airport approaching our holiday destination, but what could be incidentally perceived of Malaga was not exactly appealing or attractive.

However, the ancient city, charmingly situated in a bay, has much potential which gradually is being strengthened with cultural activities of broad nature in addition to the typical sun and sand offer.

Recently has been created a new space in Malaga, Pier One, with which the city has gained a lot more attractive. Formerly, the harbour area was a fenced area with restricted access and separate from the city. After extensive work, has been created a space of 14,000 square meters with a modern design that connects the historic centre and the Park of the Palms to the cruise terminal.

Along this space by the sea there is a shopping and leisure area, restaurants and there are also activities and facilities to entertain children; thus the area is ideal for a walk or to enjoy the gastronomic offer by the sea.
