Almeza y Castillo
Almeza y Castillo Malaga Reviews
Feb 05, 2008
This is about the only thing of historic cultural value in the city (besides the catedral y El Museo de Picasso). I would highly recommend visiting this site before you leave.
The best deal is to purchase the joint ticket for the castillo y almaza. There are machines there or someone to help you at the window.
Although the walk up the mountain to the castillo is a bit intimidating, DO IT! It is not as long as it looks and you are there before you know it. Besides, there are many places to stop and rest- you'll want to look at the view anyway as it changes with the altitude. (Stop and look at the same views on the way down, it is amazing how different you feel after being at the top).
Leave yourself a couple of hours for the whole deal. My friend and I went in midafternoon and the sun was beautiful on the sea. It would be very nice for sunset as well, although I believe it closes at 6. We climbed to the castillo first and then afterwards visited the almeza.
The whole thing is pretty spectacular and you will get great photos to take home and show to friends.
