When you live here in Spain September is one of the all hailed and most looked forward to months in the year. Gone are the crazily busy beaches, you can get a parking space in your favourite resort and the chiringuitos are still open serving fine fayre to their patrons.
The weather is balmy and has moved from the sweltering 40-degree heat of long summer days into a wonderful 25/28 degree range. Swimming pools in urbanisations empty out as the children head back to school and many of the Spanish who have holiday homes on the coast go back to the city.
Night times become cooler and sleeping without the aircon is a pleasure. You can enjoy long evenings on the terrace in the warmth of early Autumn in Spain. This is the perfect time to visit some of the many awe-inspiring spots here.
Walking the streets of Malaga is a heady mix of culture and history with a dash of gastronomical delight thrown in. A few days in this magnificent city is perfect at this time of year as it is less crowded and enjoying all it has to offer is achievable without melting. Malaga Botanical Garden is the ideal spot for a balmy afternoon walk.
This is the perfect time to head inland too after the blistering summer temperatures have dropped a little. A few days in historic Granada at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and you will be spoilt for historical and architectural choice. The Alhambra is one of Spain’s must sees as are the gardens of Generalife.
Ronda is another gem in the Spanish crown. Again, great historical and architectural value here with so much to see over a few days. Of course, you could always opt to take a wine tour in the area to appreciate its delicious fayre.
September is a fabulous month in Spain so go out and explore some of its many delights.
