    The Alcazaba of Malaga is located on a hill above town. Above is the castle Gibralfaro, whose associated fortress was Alcazaba. Both systems therefore form a single entity
    Its beginnings date back to the middle of the 11th century. It was built by the Moorish Sultan Bādīs, who ruled from 1038-1073. Badis used the Alcazaba as both a palace and a fortress.
    However, the mosque inside the fortress dates back to the 14th century. As a result of a siege by Napoleon Bonaparte, the fortress was partially destroyed and abandoned, but later rebuilt. Through the gate "Puerta del Christo" the visitor enters a fascinating labyrinth of corridors, arches and even gardens with fountains. A number of rooms in the facility are now used for special exhibitions. There is also an archaeological museum in the fortress.
    A tour along the fortified walls with a magnificent view over Malaga and its harbor should not be missed.

    The old Moorish fortification is easily reached on foot from the center of Málaga. A walk around the fortress walls gives you a great view of the city. If you want to get in, you have to pay admission, in the rooms of the palace there are always interesting exhibitions

    The Moorish fortress is a castle and palace at the same time. Within the thick walls of the castle there are many patios and gardens to explore.

    Luckily, downtown Malaga is a car-free zone, so there's nothing stopping you from relaxing. Cozy squares and numerous sidewalk cafés can be found in the historic center.

    In the lush palace gardens of the Alcazaba and the idyllic courtyards, it is a great place to stroll. In spring, the orange and jasmine trees bloom and exude a beguiling scent.
