  • . A traditional craft The statue of the Biznaguero is one of two statues representing traditional crafts of Malaga. The other is the statue of the Cenachero - the fisherman selling fish from baskets - which is a few hundred metres away at the entrance to the Plaza de la Marina. Biznagas are bunches of jasmine, but prepared in a special way. The flowers, individual flowers, are picked while still in bud, and then the Biznaguero (or probably his wife, if we are going to be honest here!) takes a thistle head with sharp spikes, and pops a jasmine flower on each spike. You end up with something looking like a giant dandelion puff ball, but made of sweet-smelling jasmine. As you can see, this is a labour-intensive craft, and the flowers, out of water of course, fade and die fast. They are pretty pricey and sold in up-market flower shops at 18-22 € each. Each head! So nowadays you are most likely to see the biznagas made of silk rather than real ones. But this statue is a lovely reminder of the traditions of the past. .
  • Nice garden for seat and relax
  • Beautiful garden, open, with wonderful views of La Alcazaba, Gibralfaro Castle, Park and City Hall statue of the Biznaguero by Jaime Pinentel, one of the emblems of the city

  • Statue of a typical Malaga character: the seller of Jazmine. It is located in Pedro Alonso gardens, next to the Town Hall. The statue is correct in its design, even though I miss you typical Malaga hat. As information I will say that the Biznaga is not a flower, but a composition that is made with a thistle that serves as support to flowers of jasmine and his 'mount' is quite laborious, since it has to be done by inserting one by one in the dry Thistle jasmine flowers - see photo-

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
