Only the outside walls are intact or have been restored. So there is not much to see inside, but you come here for the stunning views from the ramparts. Unfortunately we had a foggy day, but even then the views are spectacular. You can see the sea, Malaga city and port, and the surrounding mountains.
To get there, you can walk up from a path near the Alcazaba or go by bus. We had a 24 hour ticket on the hop-on/hop-off bus and this Castillo is one of the stops

We had fun exploring the Castillo and transporting ourselves back to the day when it was filled with life and action.

We hopped off a bus tour of Malaga at the castle and were delighted with the spectacle. Not much information provided but you're able to walk the entire castle walls and in doing so get views of the whole of Malaga from above. Amongst the greenery inside there were black squirrels who were pleased to pose for photos in return for titbits and there was a lovely small outdoor cafe in the shade in which you could recover with a beer.

Better be sure that your shoes are made for walking! the walk up to the Castillo is worth it with the views of the city. it is a 30 minute walk up a steep slope. Once at the top, the views are even more incredible! the construction of the castillo, the gardens and the views are well worth the visit. The bonus is that once inside, you can sit down at a café and have a great sangria, beer, wine and tapas! Enjoy!
