The hop on and off stop here, is on the way to the Alcazaba Fort. Nice view of the city and port. You can also see the cruises and the park from here.

Great tourist attraction. It's an old military garrison from 1487 with fabulous views of Malaga. It's on top of a mountain. We took the "Hop on hop off" bus and got off at that particular stop. There is also a museum to visit.

The history of this area is amazing, from the little museum inside the entrance to the endless walls and breathtaking views of Malaga. There is lovely cafe with super friendly staff. Take your time here and enjoy its history.
