Goya

by andal13

Francisco de Goya y Lucientes was born in 1746; his works make evident his tormented life, especially his series "Disasters of the war". He was painter of the court of king Charles the Fourth. Probably his most famous work is "La maja desnuda", that provoked a scandal during his time: it would represent the Duchess of Alba, his lover. Goya died in 1828.
Some of his works can be visited at Museo del Prado, in Madrid.

La Duquesa=-Spain

by bigfoot125

La Duquesa is in the township of Manilva midway between Marbella and Gibraltar. It is about 10km south west of Estepona and less from Sotogrande on the N340 highway, the 'Carretera.' It is about an hour from Malaga airport and only 25 minutes from Gibraltar. Duquesa is a small seaside town with a lively port area around the marina and a good selection of friendly shops, bars and restaurants.


HAS ANYONE STAYED HERE AND COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT'S IT LIKE.
Appreciate any comments

It is a lovely area. We have stayed a couple of times in an an apartment about midway between Duquesa and Estepona. La Duquesa is fairly quiet and laid back - a lovely place to relax and watch the world go quietly by. Plenty of good bars, cafes and restaurants - also a nice beach area with a superb beach bar/cafe. Certainly none of the hussle and bussle of Marbella.
Assuming you have a car available it is a well-placed location for exploring many of the delights of the area. Be sure to visit Casares and Gaucin up in the mountains.

Anybody visited or stayed in Manilva, Southern Spain, Europe? If so, can you tell me is it very touristy, quaint etc? Want to visit and maybe stay a few days in a few towns in southern spain, and know nothing about this town.

Thanks!

I think you would love it. Most places in Andalucia are divine...The food the dancing, the Spanish love of life...go fo it! Its nice to stay 'a few days' you get the real feel.

I can't help with your question about Manilva Spain, but from my travels I suggest you definitely go to Granada and Cordoba. The Gardens in Cordoba are full of orange trees, amazing shrubbery and extreme beauty. When I was there, my friend said it would be her dream place to get married there - it's that special. I'm sure Granada is already part of your itinerary as it should be! Wear your walking shoes when you visit the Alhambra - it requires quite a hike.

Manilva is on the Costa del Sol, which is one of the main tourist destinations in Spain. That said, Manilva is possibly one of the most quiet towns in that region. The old town of Manilva is a few km. inland, and is mostly a typical Andalusian town with not so many tourists. Most of the tourist apartments are around the marina called "Puerto de la Duquesa". This area is pleasant and very family-oriented. It is well-located for day-trips to the famous white villages of Andalusia, Gibraltar, Ronda, and many other places.

Thanks - your information helps. I've travelled Andalucia quite a bit but just never got over to Manilva and surrounding little towns. I'll definitely keep it in mind for a stop-off on my trip. Appreciate your reply.

Thanks for replying. I've done Cordoba and Granada quite a few times and I agree, they are wonderful places to visit. I've just never explored towns like Manilva or surrounding towns, so it'll be an adventure visiting new places on my trip. Thanks again for your answer.

Great and thanks for your reply. Will definitely mark it on my list of towns to visit. Appreciate your getting back so quickly.
