“Amazing palace, well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This palace is an amazing place and well worth the couple euro entry fee. The views are great and arches are still incredible.

“Very good, but limited facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The view was excellent, slightly dodgy toilets. Not as much historical information (as compared to other Spanish sites), although the view is worth the very modest entrance fee and the walk up the hill.

“Ancient Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Fantastic views over the city. There are some very calm and peaceful places within the walls where the views can be admired without any rush to move on.

“Relaxed visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Only a couple of Euros entry charge. Nice to stroll round with different garden areas, rooms and archways. Great views across Malaga as you walk up the hill.
