In a privileged place and very close to the cathedral, you can discover this fortification formed by the Roman Theater, the citadel and, at the top of the hill, the castle of Gibralfaro.
Currently, it occupies less than half the space it had in its period of greatest splendour but it is still one of the beauties of the city. It was built in the 11th century.

Castillo de Gibralfaro:
This castle was built to defend the Alcazaba against possible attacks. Today from its Torre del Homenaje there are beautiful views of the whole city. We advise you to go up at sunset, because you will enjoy a wonderful time.
Did you know it was discovered only 68 years ago? Yes, even the people of Malaga didn’t know that it existed before. It was discovered during the works of realization of the gardens that are next to the then House of Culture. Today it is a tourist attraction of the city. You can see the opening hours to the public here.
