The Alcazaba

and some tapas por favor!

Posted by Dounia

The Alcazaba is one of the most visited monuments of Malaga which has a lot of history. The Muslim-era structure is located at the foot of the Gibralfaro hill, which is crowned by the Arab defense works to which the Alcazaba is connected by a walled tunnel known as the Coracha. You can get there easily by bike.

This unique area, which includes the Roman Theatre and the Aduana Customs Building, allows visitors to experience Roman, Arab, and Renaissance culture all within a few yards of one another. It was constructed between 1057 and 1063 under the orders of Badis, Ruler of the Berber Taifa of Granada.

The Alcazaba is surrounded by many other famous monuments like the roman theatre, the Christian Brotherhood “Los Estudiantes”, and the restaurant “El Pimpi” of the famous malagueño actor Antonio Banderas.

After going to the Alcazaba, grabbing some food is always a good idea so here are some of the best recommendations.
