Built between 1057 and 1063, this is probably the most important military fortification remaining from the Hispanic-Arabic period.

This is well worth a visit, and thereafter a visit to the castle. It is a long walk but well worth it and taking your time is advised. There are splendid views across the port, a birds eye view of the bull ring and from...More

This was well worth renting our E-bikes and going to the top. The views were stunning and the area was well kept with lots of historic signs to explain what you were viewing.

Expected some stone walls, but this place really suprised me. The gardens inside are so beautiful and there are some really sweet views over Malaga to the sea. Definitely worth a visit I was really presently surprised!

Malaga Alcazaba is a city must visit place, it is located in city center, easy accessible by feet. Outside it looks like a fortification, and I did not expect nice walk-able areas inside. But I was really surprise, very nice walking paths covered with shadows...More

If you have no time to go to Granada and see the Alhambra, Málagas's Alcazaba offers beautiful views of the city, including the ocean, and interesting and romantic Arab ruins.

Admission to the Alcazaba was €2.20 for adults and €0.60 for kids. It was so much bigger than we had thought and took quite a while to go to. There are many steps and most of the paths are cobblestone, so good footwear is helpful....More

Very pretty view from the top of the palace and castle but be ready for a good climb up the sloppy road ;)

We went in on free admission (Sundays after 2 pm). The settings were beautiful. Would have appreciated more information and guides regarding the history.

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.

I don't think it is possible to buy on line specifically just for entrance to Alcazaba because it is so cheap. 2 euros single entry and 3.5 euros for a joint ticket. There are opportunities on line to buy entrance as part of... More
