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

Went to Alcazaba with my daughter. It was a very hot day but we took it easy stopping on the way around. Found it so relaxing. Lovely place.

We paid €7.10 for two of us which included admission to Alcazaba and the Castillo de Gibralfaro, bargain! We spent a good couple of hours wandering round the two buildings, it's a steep walk to the Castillo but you're rewarded with fantastic views of Malaga,...More

Low entrance price for a good visit to the Alcazaba. We liked it a lot! If you like to see a little more history you should also visit the gibralfaro but you will have to hike up the mountain. The alcazaba is easier to visit...More

Beautiful views and good value. Was worth a visit. Possibly better off to head to the higher point first. We didn't bother. Pretty place though

My husband and I decided to have a look while we were in Malaga... amazing to walk round but still a little confusing to what it was! Lack of information for English speakers! Nice cafe at the top and to get a cold drink after...More

Definitely worth the visit for the old moorish design and architecture, which has been very well-preserved, but not quite the grade and scale of the Alhambra.

This is well worth a visit, and thereafter a visit to the castle. It is a long walk but well worth it and taking your time is advised. There are splendid views across the port, a birds eye view of the bull ring and from...More

This was well worth renting our E-bikes and going to the top. The views were stunning and the area was well kept with lots of historic signs to explain what you were viewing.

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
