Castillo De Gibralfaro, Malaga Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very scenic historic monument, with fabulous views over the Mediterranean sea, the city and port of Malaga, and the inland surroundings. In the interior, there's a multitude of Mediterranean plants, and a small exhibition (in Spanish only) describing their economic and historic importance. I decided to walk up from the city center - a quite steep stonelaid path, nor suitable for people in a wheelchair, and probably quite dangerous in wet weather. The effort was very much worth it, however. At the castle there is a small museum explaining its history, and a nice cafe. The toilets are OK.

  • Great views from the fortess 360 degree views. Nice exhibit and cafe inside. very very steep paths up on the ocean side amazing there is not steps instead with Railings. I wouldnt go up with slippery shoes or when wet.

  • Nice fortress with great overview over the city and the bay. Great for photos and casual strolling. Well maintained. Beware of the steep pathways if you're coming there by foot - the tiles are quite slippery, so put some shoes with a good grip sole.

  • Very interesting place in terms of its history . Not so much of to actually see. Mostly just walls. However the view is the best of Malaga and worth the visit alone.

  • Hard to go, but the touristic bus arrive on top very near the entrance. Fantastic view of the city and the port. Obviously seaview is magic
