  • Castillo de Gibralfaro

    Ruins atop Mount Gibralfaro
    The way to the ruins of this Moorish fortress takes visitors up a steep footpath or along the Calle Mundo Nuevo. The Castillo was built in the 15th century and painstakingly restored. Today visitors to the fortress and the ramparts are rewarded with a fantastic view of the coastline – especially at sunset. You might consider enjoying a coffee at the Hotel Parador.

  • Catedral de la Encarnación de Málaga

    The 16th century Malaga Cathedral with its single tower looks a little unusual; the tower's twin was left undone due to lack of funding. The Gothic and Renaissance elements of the cathedral interior have been maintained and the carved wooden choir benches date back to the 17th century. Visitors will get the best outdoor view of the cathedral from the square on the Calle Cister, where cosy terrace cafés encourage guests to linger.

  • Alcazaba

    Impressive fortress
    The Alcazaba was built in the 11th century. The stone citadel and its eleven towers sits atop the city like a throne and draws visitors to see its architectural uniqueness. The palatial fortress is built on several levels at different heights divided into various fortification rings. The garden is especially lovely with numerous fountains. Right at the entrance there is also a Roman amphitheatre, which was discovered by accident while removing stone for construction of the citadel.

    Impressive collection
