Alcazaba of Malaga

The Alcazaba was built by the Hammudid dynasty. It is the best preserved fortress palace in Spain and on a par with the Krak Des Chevaliers in Syria. The entrance is on Calle Alcazabilla next to the Roman amphitheatre. The fortress was built on a Roman garrison, a lot of the stonework used in the construction of the Alcazaba came from the garrison. There is another entrance if you can find it on Calle Guillen Sotelo. Its marked Asencor A la Alcazaba, it's a tunnel that leads to a lift into the Alcazaba. Inside the Alcazaba there are a series of walkways, defences and gardens. On Sunday afternoon from 2.00pm to 4:00pm the Alcazaba is free to enter. It is one of the main attractions in Malaga worth a visit. The gardens and views are stunning. For more information on the Alcazaba in Malaga including a short video and an interactive google map for directions from your current position see below.
