“Views from an ancient ruins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is a good spot if you want to see the city from above ground. I will not recommend if you have great fear of heights but you will be missing out.

“Be fit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I visited this place a couple days ago. It was a steep climb. View was ok. If you have time to spend in Malaga, you may try it.

“Long walk, not much to see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

It was a long steep climb to get here but in the end it was not that great. There is a museum that is not very interesting with little information in English. The view is spectacular and almost worth the admission price. There is not much left to see in the fortress itself.

“Interesting albeit a bit "refurbished"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Vastly restored, some parts are still quite originals and the view from the top is worthwhile. Cheap tickets. Warning: you need to climb to get to the top.
