ALCAZABA DE MALAGA Jan 26, 2017
ALCAZABA DE MALAGA

Built on a hill with a view over the sea and the city is the fortress and palace of Malaga's Muslim governors. The only remaining building from medieval times, the ALCAZABA DE MALAGA'S irregular ground plan is adapted to the topography of the land and consists of two walled areas. It was once a Royal palace, where Felipe V stayed on a visit to the city. In 1843 it stopped being military property. Its restoration was proposed in 1931 by architect Antonio Palacios Ramilo and historian and scholar Juan Temboury.

CASTILLO DE GIBRALFARO

There are different theories as to the origins of CASTILLO DE GIBRALFARO and it could date back to the Phoenician - Carthaginian period, but the 'coracha' ( a walled passage which links the castle with the Alcazaba as a form of protection ) was built during the reign of Yusef I in the 14th century. The castle used to contain a mosque, but visitors today can still see several wells, bread ovens and the old powder factory, which is now an information centre.

Gebel - Faro means 'Rock of the Lighthouse'

From the Parador de Gibralfaro, you will have beautiful views over the ruins, the city and the sea.
