Alcazaba - Simply delightful! You must visit this place when you are in Malaga. The visit included a small fee, lots of walking tours, amazement and big take photos. You should see it for yourself.

This attraction can be really recommended. Beautiful building with amazing details. Small hooks, rippling water and amazing views. At the bar they sell tasty sangria.

Wear good shoes. Most uphill. Outside attraction. Nice walks and gardens. Good cafes and refreshments as you go. Worth seeing for the views over the city.

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.
Can I purchase tickets for the Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibralfaro in advance? Can they be purchased online?

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
