SARDINES are not a dish exclusive to Malaga, but the way they are prepared is and considered almost an art for many Malagueños.

The preparation of a classic espeto (sardine skewer) is actually very simple, and comes from a technique invented in the late nineteenth century in the neighborhood of El Palo in Malaga.
