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

For a historian I think this place can tell you a lot. A heritage site that benefits us and the future. It you want to have a great view of the coast then this is the place to be! Stunning 👌❤️

One of the highlights of Malaga. Alcazaba is beautiful and the view you get at the top is worth it. For about €3.55 you gain entrance into Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibralfaro (Gibralfaro can be accessed within 24 hours of receiving the combined ticket), otherwise,...More

This is a historic place to visit. If you love history visit this place. The only thing is if bringing a baby difficult to have stroller because you have to climb to the top. The convenient way is to carry your baby in body carrier....More

Place is nice, the garden are lovely. Interesting view of the town. You have to visit both Alcazaba and the old castle to appreciate the scenic views. Quiet a good walk. About two hours and a half required to visit both castles.

We took a quick walk by Alcazaba. Beautiful place. Need more time to explore. There are the ruins of an Roman theatre right next to it.

Not sure why but the day we visited there were signs on the ticket machines saying it was free, otherwise it would only have cost a small amount anyway (possibly 2 euros) which is worth it! The grounds are really nice to look at and...More

Nice place, worth visiting, mostly in the evening when it is not too hot. Right in the centre, near the beach.

Not the most interesting castle ever, but the admission cost is low, great views from the battlements.

Nice view from the hill top! Overlooking the city port of Malaga. One of the famous Landmark in the Centre of Malaga historical district.

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
