This is well worth a visit- its a bit like a small Alhambra. Good views across the city and the coast. You need to walk out of the Alcazaba and go around the corner to the belvedere and the upper part of the fort.

Lovely to look around these ruins. They are well looked after and clean and tidy. Some steep bits and cobbled roads and amazing views.

This was such a surprise as there was so much to see, not only the building but the gardens, the views and the history. Malaga undersells itself, I had no idea.

Visiting the Alcazaba is a great way to spend a couple hours on a sunny afternoon. The walk to get there is easy from the center of the city and the cost is reasonable. It's beautiful to see the structures, the gardens and the views....More

Tickets are available just inside the entrance. They include an audio-guide which you can use on your way round. There is a special price for seniors. I paid something like 3 euro. Very good value for money.
