    Favorite thing: Alcazaba probably was one of the nicest things I've seen in Malaga. Just don't have rush, like my colleagues did, and don't think that Alcazaba is the same thing as castle of Gibralfaro - yes, you can buy a "combined" ticket so you can see them both, but Alcazaba has some different spirit, just turn left when entered and you will discover nice inner gardens remained from Moorish times.

    Too many steps

    by Geoff_Wright Updated Jan 14, 2004

    Favorite thing: Another picture, at the entrance to the old Castle, where the Roman remains are being excavated. I don't have any other information on this site, but there is an entrance fee, and there are many, many steps! So we decided not to go inside this time. Unfortunately, we never returned to take a proper look. I imagine the views over the city, from the top, would be spectacular.

    A place you should really...

    Favorite thing: A place you should really visit is 'The Alcazaba', the most important military fortification remaining from the Hispanic-Arabic period. It was built on the hillside of the Gibralfaro mountain (Yabal-Faruk, meaning mountain of the lighthouse) from where it is possible to watch the African coast
