Great visit and well worth the 2.2EU price. Interesting and good views. Not the most in way of info or museum but good all the same. Lots of steps and v slippery floors if wet.

Well worth a visit here just for the views from the top. but beware, it is very steep and lots and lots of steps. There is a nice cafe to get refreshments, on a hot day this is very welcome.

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.
