“Enjoyable walk”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We had an enjoyable walk through all the pathways and rooms however we were annoyed that we weren't able to walk through to the top of the Alcazar from the lower gardens as they have locked off the gate that joins them. This means that after you have looked through the gardens you will have to trek all the way back through to the bottom of the hill only to have to walk around the outside of the gardens and back up the hill again to get to the Alcazar at the top. When you get the to top of the Alcazar they charge another entrance fee.

“Knowledge needed”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a great monument and it is very interesting to see. It is not a great place if you are not interested in history, and you will also need to know a little about this monument to enjoy it. If the weather is good, you can really have a nice visit, and if you know the history of the Alcazaba, it is a nice place for children to see as well

“Beautiful walls,views and gardens”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We visited this after a disappointing trip to the Jardin Botanico and were blown away by the variety of flowers, beautifully kept gardens in a spectacular setting. We were there late in the afternoon in November, and the light was perfect. It is our favourite place we have seen so far in Malaga.

“The small Alhambra”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

It is kept in a rather good state but not as magnificent as Alhambra. It has some beautiful gardens with Nazari tiles and fountains, some of them very similar to Alhambra but not as elaborate- such as the Alberca patio.
