Castillo Gibralfaro is a castle originally built by Abd-al-Rahman 111 when the whole Andalusian peninsula was ruled by the Moor's. It was expanded in the 14th century by Yusuf 1 sultan of Granada. Yusuf is renowned for constructing the gate of justice at the entrance of the Alhambra Palace in Granada. The view's are fantastic looking down over the port and the city. There are a few ways of getting there but in our opinion the best way is the entrance on Calle Guillen Sotelo which runs along side the Jardines de Pedro Luis Alonso( click the red icon below). There is a set of cobbled steps on the opposite side of the road to the garden's. This path zig zags along side the castle walls all the way to the top.Three quarters of the way up there is an observation point, this is The best point for photographs of the port and city. The views are truly stunning. Alternatively you can catch the number 35 bus from Paseo del Parque which goes up to the castle gate's.
