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.

  • This medieval Moorish fortress is a must-see attraction in Malaga. We took an elevator to go there but you can walk if you are fit enough. The entrance fee is 5.5 euros. It’s really great, well...

  • A very wonderful and suggestive place. I really loved the place! It is equally interesting and intriguing in each of its parts. The outside gives you a beautiful view on the city while the internal part is full of cozy and wonderful gardens where to walk and relax immersed in history. Very amazing place
  • You must not miss this visit. If you want to take interior photos without a lot of people in them, it is better to come in the morning at the opening. Beautiful space with little gardens, squirrels and pigeons nested in the walls. Very nice view overlooking the sea and the city. It has a lot off little things similar to Alhambra.
