Destinations

MÁLAGA

Settle down for a tasty lunch or dinner

at Restaurante Mesón la Cepa in

Calle Strachan, which has been

feeding hungry diners for 20 years and

has plenty of loyal customers. Run by

legendary restaurateur Antonio Agüera

Miranda, it’s a reference point for Málaga

gastronomy, and a magnet for foodies.

Feast on cod cooked in a variety of ways,

fried squid, Russian salad, Iberian hams

and cheeses, broad beans with ham,

sirloin steak, pork shoulder, or their famous,

tender lamb shoulder – all at a reasonable

price. Tapas is a speciality, if you don’t

fancy a full meal.

LUXEMBOURG

If you like a view and have a head

for heights, then don’t miss a trip

on the city’s new architectural

landmark – the award-winning, beautiful,

glass Pfaffenthal lift. It took six years in

the making and is unique, designed

especially for its location. Free to use,

the lift connects the Pescatore park in

the city centre to the Pfaffenthal area at

the bottom of the Alzette valley. Open

to both pedestrians and cyclists, it allows

passengers to enjoy panoramic views

over the picturesque city 71 metres below.

Note, it closes every first Monday of the

month for maintenance, reopening the

following day at 6am.

LYON

See the world on a smaller scale at

Mini World Lyon, France’s largest

miniature park. Covering over 3,000

square metres, it consists of four different

worlds (town, country, mountains and,

new for this year, Mini Lyon) and is full

of amusing details, famous characters

and clever references to cartoons and

movies. In the mountains, for instance,

there’s snow, cable cars, skiers, and

even a Christmas market. Special lighting

recreates different times of the day and

night, and there are plenty of interactive

features, too.
