The Alcazaba ruins was an unexpected joy for the whole family. Very well maintained gardens, water fountains, and great views of the city and the sea. Very serene and calm - a true oasis in the midst of the city. Not to be missed

Nice view and not hard to walk . Historic. But very strange that all information boards are in Spanish and non in tourist languages. Quite arrogant or maybe incompetent

The tickets are about 2,50 euros. The view is great! You don't have to walk much to see the whole city.

The ticket office was closed and from what I heard it's not usually open. We paid at a ticket machine and really didn't look for a joint ticket.

We paid 2.20 euros for an adult and 0.60 euros for kids (ours are 11 and 17) just for the Alcazaba. Really nice visit and very easy to get to.
