Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Malaga / Castillo de Gibralfaro
The city of Málaga's official flag depicts this castle, known as Castillo de Gibralfaro. Built in the tenth century by the Caliph of Córdoba, and expanded by the Sultan of Granada, the fortress also once housed King Ferdinand. AS you approach, you'll see ramparts rising from the surrounding woods. This distinguishing feature, along with a few interior buildings and a large courtyard, are well preserved. Take a stroll along the ramparts on the outer wall and you'll catch a view of the interior of the bullfighting ring next door.

Castillo de Gibralfaro Reviews
Malagán az egyik kötelező látnivaló a Gibralfaro vár. Már a várhoz vezető út is lenyűgöző. Szinte méterenként megálltunk és fotóztuk az alattunk fekvő tájat. Az utat felfelé megtenni elég nehéz, főleg... more »Málaga is one of the mandatory sights of the Gibralfaro Castle. The road to the castle is also impressive. Almost every meter we stopped and photographed the landscape lying beneath us. The way up is hard enough, especially in warm heat. Therefore, we went up for the second time by bus 35, which departs from the street behind the Renfe end station in Málaga. So I had to do just down the often slippery and steep path. In the castle there is a small museum, worth seeing. A magnificent spectacle in front of the castle walls. The beach is amazing. After a long walk, you can relax on the small espresso's terrace.
Siamo arrivati a questo Castello con l'autobus che ci ha lasciato proprio all'entrata, la vista è da mozzafiato. bello anche l'interno. more »We arrived at this Castle by bus that left us right at the entrance, the view is breathtaking. nice also the interior.
The best place on our trip. Battlements and buildings are restored. Wonderful views from the castle. Also, excellent small museum showing weapons and uniforms from the era in which the castle was used. A must see, well worth it. Once again modest charge.
This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Malaga. It is a stunning and large structure providing views of the whole of the city and beyond! Also, very reasonable standard adult entry fee at the time of posting: €3.50.
