Givea good views of the city. Good little hike navigating the maze-like defense fortifications and making your way towards the top.

This is not the Alhambra but it is well worth a visit. The gardens are extensive and so peaceful. The buildings illustrate the harmony of Moorish architecture. Fabulous views of city.

While it is not of the same beauty as Alhambra it is still a very charming place to see as it is a separate piece of the puzzle of an area. It has, for example, a kitchen with preserved oven, something that cannot be found...More

It is definitely a place you Can Walk through. Badically it is an old fort with some good views over the harbour and Malaga an the bullfighting arena. The signs are Not very easy to spot, but Then again it isn’t important to follow Them.

This is a very worthwhile place to visit, being majestic (huge towering walls), and intricate with many separate spaces and courtyards. All quite fascinating.

We took a taxi to Gibralfaro, was under euro10 , there is a bus #35 also, and descended to Alcazaba stopping for the views on the way. Combined ticket for both is worth to obtain. Gibralfaro and Alcazaba remind somewhat the Alhambra of Granada in...More

Excellent view of the city and harbour and also an impressive hike. Do wear good shoes and go early in the morning - mid summer would be a killer. Great little bar at the entrance to Gibralfaro - do not cheat yourself of the hike...More

One of the best preserved Moorish citadels in Spain. The massive walls, ornamented gates and beautiful inner gardens are great photo ops. We also enjoyed the car ride up the hills as it offered a fantastic views of the city below.
