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

The Alcazaba cannot be described in words. You have to visit when traveling to the South of Spain. The Alcazaba offers the best view of the beautiful city of Malaga and the port. Also, it has beautiful gardens and is a great place for pictures. Come and see for yourself.

Fantastic place. Surely a must see. Eventhough you have to travel to get there, this is woth a visit. It is big, so take your time. Very good photooptions - a little tip is to see the postcards before you go in, then you know which photos that will work best.

Believe or not, but that was my favourite place that I've seen in Malaga. Upper fortress is great viewing point and inside you will find beautiful gardens and good chunk of history, interiors that will blow you away with carved celling, beautiful tile design and fountains. I must admit that I really enjoyed visiting this fortress and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

Beautiful gardens and views and very good value. Just wander round and enjoy the tranquility. Good examples of moorish architecture.

This is a must see when in Malaga. The view alone of the port below will make the small ticket price worthwhile. The gardens and fortifications of this landmark are worth seeing at 10 times the cost. Wear comfy shoes and bring a camera.
