“Cool fortress, definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The walk up is a bit of a hike on a hot day, recommend seeing it on the hop-on/off tour bus or getting a ride up. The views are great from the top along with a drink at the bar. There is a small museum inside one of the buildings but all the text is in Spanish.

“Views to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Just a must-not-miss, simple as that! Not a vast amount of info, but such atmosphere, and views like you wouldn't believe of beautiful Malaga

“Nice scenary”

It's a long way up, especially on a hot day. Bring water and enjoy the magnificent view from the top.

“long walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Great castle, if you start from the town its a very good hike to the top of the hill and the entrance. There is a bus that drops you off right by the front gate but you would miss the great scenery.

“Beau Geste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is a Moorish Fort such as you imagine in Beau Geste. It is a long steep trek uphill to get to it. You have great views of the city and bay. There is a drinks bar just outside it. If you don't want the walk you can take a taxi almost to the door or use the red tourist bus. Do NOT attempt this walk on high heeled shoes. You may get up but going down is another thing!
