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

Compared to the arab ruins/architecture in Andalusia, the Alcazaba is not highly decorate? The place is worth to visit, the views of Malaga from the Alcazaba are amazing, the walls and gardens are beautiful as well.

Visiting the Alcazaba and the castle are a worthwhile walk and great value. We paid for a single ticket, two people, both the Alcazaba and the castle together and it was only 12.90€. We took many pictures and walked for hours. So beautiful a campus...More

2,5E and some hike up and in 10 min got a perfect view of Malaga harbour and surroundings. There is pretty much nothing to do but nice walk up and down medieval fortress, one hour max.

We purchased a ticket for both Alcazaba and Gibralfaro for 3.55€ per person from Alcazaba entrance, the roman theatre is stunning and there are lots of places to rest as the walk can be tiring but worth it.

You can't compare this place with Alhambra although a lot of the architecture is similar. Nice inner gardens and views over the city. The combined ticket with Gibralfaro is best if you plan to do both. Probably the most interesting historical place in Malaga.

Definitely worth a visit and even at night when all the walls are lit up Alcazaba is lovely and there are plenty of bars where you can sit and look at it!

Hey! I think there is, I'm not sure how much is it though. The standard joint ticket is 7,10 euro. I think the prices are on their website. But anyway, that's very cheap, you are paying for two entries whereas in other you... More
