“Not Alhambra, but a must see ! ! !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Although there are some more spectacular sight s to see in Spain ie Alhambra this should be included on your visit to Malaga. After you take it in if fit take the walk up to the top of the hill and enjoy the vistas along the way and the Castillo up top.

“Alcazaba, Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Absolutely amazing, must visit. Bit of a walk, but there are lifts. Reduction for pensioners, take your passport or bus pass! Great value. Worth reading up about it a bit on Google first, so you know what you are looking at.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a very enjoyable visit through lovely gardens and the old Moorish palace. Best visited in the morning when it is quiet and the gardens are at their most fragrant.

“Gorgeous views - bring your camera!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We really enjoyed exploring this monument, we took so many photos. Remember your sun cream and hat as it is all out in the sunshine.

It's a beautiful view point to see over the whole of Malaga and the sea.
