Castillo De Gibralfaro - Review

Dating back to the 10th Century and used as a military base till 1925, the Castle of Gibralfaro has enjoyed a significant role in Spain’s history. The castle looks over Malaga like a lighthouse and offers some unforgettable views of the city.

The castle is one of the last remaining symbol of Malaga’s Islamic heritage and a visit to the on-site museum will explain much about its importance from the military standpoint. Visitors are sure to enjoy a walk via the scenic Paseo Don Juan de Temboury that is dotted with lush green terraces and incredible views.

Castillo De Gibralfaro, Malaga Reviews

  • very nice views,you can see nearly the whole city from above! don't forget your camera and bring enough to drink if you walk up the hill, there are nearly any shadows so it's gonna be hot! you could also take the tourist hop on bus up the, i think it's cheap but i don't remember the exact prices you are also able to buy drinks up the hill from a little street shop I can't recommend walking up the hill with kids, take the bus instead!

  • Great views of the city, along the way and from atop the castle. The hike up is a decent uphill walk so wear appropriate shoes and bring some water, especially on hot days. Once you get to the top, it’s €3.50 to enter (general admission). Inside the castle walls it’s a bit dull but you can walk up the edge of each side of the castle for views from each point of the castle. It was interesting to see the harbor side and also the residential side of Malaga. There is also a small bar inside the castle to have a break. The bathroom is also clean. Inside there is also a small room with artifacts and models from Spanish history.

  • Cheap as chips to enter (remember your concession), just wander around and enjoy the castle. You can take a beer at the kiosk for a very fair price with great friendly hosts. There are some great views over Málaga from here and on the way up at the mirador. Definitely worth seeing if you have a few hours in the morning as it can get really hot in the afternoon.

  • Nice hike to see an ancient castle. Try not to hike around 2pm when it’s really hot. No shades there. You could alway take your umbrella. Walking down is dangerous. You can take the bus back down.

  • You can drive to the top of the garrison or walk the steep climb stone pathway with other folks of all ages both tourists and locals use. The pathway is a challenge as it zigzags up. Take note, it’s advisable to bring a bottle of water and good walking shoes. If you get tired, you can rest as you walk up. Take your time. Once you make it, It’s worth to see high above Malaga with spectacular views of the sea, the city and surrounding mountains. We even saw a few Tour De France bikers training on these walkways. For them equal to steep mountainous terrain. There are also a couple lookout points should you give up the final path and steps. DON’T GIVE UP. There is a kiosk selling beverages at the top and even a hotel. Allow 1.1/2-2 hours for the attraction.
