Destinations

MALAGA

Half an hour from Málaga, the

Carromato de Max (also called Max’s

Caravan) in Mijas, a tiny museum of

miniatures in a colourful, wooden carriage

is worth visiting. Definitely a must-see, no

tourist can resist going in after reading the

posters at the entrance of the museum

explaining that you can see dressed,

stuffed fleas, a ballet dancer carved on

a toothpick and Leonardo da Vinci’s

Last

Supper

on a grain of rice. To make it easier

to see the exhibits, many come with a

magnifying glass.
