Delve into 11th-century history of the Moorish conquest of Spain at Alcazaba. Built on the site of an ancient Roman village, the fortress served as a military stronghold for the Moors up until the Reconquista. Tour the inner labyrinth of the fortress to see impressive Muslim architecture. Wander the gardens full of notable fountains and landscaping. Appreciate panoramic views of the coastline from the fortress walls. Directly in front of the entrance is an old Roman amphitheater that you can tour in addition to the fortress with the purchase of a single ticket. See Alcazaba and all Malaga has to offer by arranging your trip with our Malaga visit planning site .

This is a great place to visit. We wandered around all of the different levels for about an hour. Some great views from the top of the city and port. more »
Lovely place to spend a few hours! Wonderful history right in the middle of the city, easily accessible from near the main Cathedral area. Free after 2 pm on Sunday. Nice stroll up to the top with gorgeous views and gardens all the way through. We spent 1-2 hours exploring but could spend the whole afternoon. From here you can then walk (a steep but doable) 20 minute walk up to the Castillo.
What a magical and nice place. For 5 € you can visit the lower and the upper castle. However the lift, which is important if you have a stroller, is out on Mondays. The sight is marvellous. You can enjoy the stay there
