Alcazaba, Malaga Reviews

  • I was visiting this place right after being in Alhambra and it was quite disappointing. But I think it's still a good value for the price. It takes around two hours to visit. I thought the last part was the most interesting.

  • Awesome place with awesome views. For 2,20€ a ticket you get more than you pay. The place it's great, lot of walkways, flowers, plants, a rose garden and a terrace where you can enjoy a cold drink. There are some spots where you can take some really nice panorama shots. And there is also a toilet!! I will definetely come back on another day.

  • Very beautiful fort. You have two entrance, one is equipped with an elevator and with other you have to climb up. The climbing is not very difficult. I recommend to use the elevator for climbing and you could come down to the other entrance traversing all the castle in one go.

  • Very nice castle, low price to enter. Unfortunately not to many English explanations, though a visit worthy. Easy to access and even an elevator available so you only have to walk down instead of uphill.

  • Well kept example of Moorish architecture. Bigger place so it feels less crowded than the Alhambra even when there is a cruise ship in port. Definitely worth seeing if in Malaga.
