“A MUST when visiting Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Alcazaba cannot be described in words. You have to visit when traveling to the South of Spain. The Alcazaba offers the best view of the beautiful city of Malaga and the port. Also, it has beautiful gardens and is a great place for pictures. Come and see for yourself.

“Place that you cannot miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Believe or not, but that was my favourite place that I've seen in Malaga. Upper fortress is great viewing point and inside you will find beautiful gardens and good chunk of history, interiors that will blow you away with carved celling, beautiful tile design and fountains. I must admit that I really enjoyed visiting this fortress and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

“Beautiful gardens and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Beautiful gardens and views and very good value. Just wander round and enjoy the tranquility. Good examples of moorish architecture.

“Amazing place, amazing view, amazing history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

This is a must see when in Malaga. The view alone of the port below will make the small ticket price worthwhile. The gardens and fortifications of this landmark are worth seeing at 10 times the cost. Wear comfy shoes and bring a camera.
