A fascinating, albeit small, Moorish castle, close to the old town and tourist centre of Malaga, but not yet fully open to the public, some areas are still inaccessible. However, what is open is well presented, and the views across the city are very good....More

Nice view of Malaga, the port and the sea. A lot of stairs to climb but it is worth to sweat a bit for the view

Semi-heavy walk up; nice lookout deck at midway. One can also of course choose a taxi or a tourist bus. Affordable entrance fee. You can walk at the walls of the fortress. Stunning 360 degree views. Interior of the castle is not that impressive but...More
