Ceramic Bench, Alameda Park, Marbella, Spain.
Alameda Park is small, but very nice. Right on the main road, it’s chock-full of the most amazing trees and plants and has a huge round water fountain in the middle. Lots of benches for sitting with a coffee and cake, lots of them clad with azulejos, Andalusian hand-painted tiles showing some of the city’s monuments and history. In the higher season months, you’ll also find a small fairground – maybe ‘fairground’ isn’t the right word, but a few little rides and things to keep the kids happy. My boys used to love it. Now he likes video games.
