Alcazaba, Malaga Reviews - Write a Review

  • Alcazaba is a beauty! We guided ourselves up the winding pathways, exploring the books and crannies of the fortification. The views of the bay from the towers are lovely. We also enjoyed the exhibit of pottery excavated from the site. It was an easy enough walk up and down for my 76 year old mother.

  • Great. Great. Great view of the city. So many towers within Alcazaba that you can take brilliant shots of the city and multiple angles of the city. Of course, the fortress itself is beautiful - make sure to purchase an Audio guide to know more about significance of the architecture and the fortress history - quite insightful.

  • Es un sitio bonito, con buenas vistas y jardines preciosos. La entrada es muy barata si eres de Málaga o estás empadronado. Además, arriba hay una cafetería en la que tomarte un cafelito mirando Málaga muy a gusto.

  • A must visit when In Malaga. Well maintained and has an interesting history. Great views from the top and quite a steep walk. Coffee and beers await at the top too!

  • This was an absolutely amazing site. Great view of Malaga. We walked up the ramp near the Roman amphitheater. I have included several 360 shots from where we walked up. Malaga was one of my favorite locations in Spain.
