The most amazing views of Malaga, the sea and mountains await you high above the walls of the Castle of Gibralfaro.
A complete panoramic view of the Costa de Sol awaits you on this Gibralfaro Castle Free Walking Tour where you will enjoy the sea and sun surrounding the city and visit the amazing castle of Gibralfaro perched high up between the Montes de Malaga mountain range. Sign up to a unique tour and get to know from high above the Mediterranean and the castle that guards the city.
Our Spanish speaking guide will lead us through one of the best-known paths in the city, one that is enjoyed by millions of tourists every day offering breathtaking views from high above Mount Gibralfaro. The bay of Malaga is the city´s main attraction and there is no way that this adventure in the south can come to an end without paying it a visit.
We will venture beyond the walls of the famous neighbourhood La Coracha until we reach the Castle of Gibralfaro built by Granada´s Nazari dynasty. The walls and the fortress were built by Abd-al-Rahman III as a way of defending the city from attacks and sieges but with the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs they took it as their residence.
Currently the castle holds remains of its Arab and Christian past and continues to protect the city from invaders right from high up in the mountains. Immerse yourself in a story of kings and queens, knights and wars.
We´ll also visit the neighbourhoods located around the castle like La Victoria where the local bourgeosie and dressmakers used to stay and nowadays is considered to be one of the more independent neighbourhoods of the city.
After our journey back in time, we will stop for a break under the trees in the Jardines de Puerta Oscura (Dark Gate Gardens), a small historic corner located on the side of Mount Gibralfaro. The gardens are in a spot where the main entrance to the castle was located previously.
Come and experience a unique adventure, spectacular views of the sea, the city and the bay that will leave you speechless and a history of conquests on this Gibralfaro Castle Free Walking Tour.
