Create an itinerary including Alcazaba
Delve into 11th-century history of the Moorish conquest of Spain at Alcazaba. Built on the site of an ancient Roman village, the fortress served as a military stronghold for the Moors up until the Reconquista. Tour the inner labyrinth of the fortress to see impressive Muslim architecture. Wander the gardens full of notable fountains and landscaping. Appreciate panoramic views of the coastline from the fortress walls. Directly in front of the entrance is an old Roman amphitheater that you can tour in addition to the fortress with the purchase of a single ticket. See Alcazaba and all Malaga has to offer by arranging your trip with our Malaga visit planning site.
