What are we going to discover on this Free Tour Alcazaba Palace in Málaga?

Walking inside the Alcazaba is understanding the history of the city in its different historical contexts, since its network of streets with a double walled enclosure, as well as its corners, or its main square and all its secrets make this one of the the most important visits of the capital.

This Free Tour begins at the foot of the Roman Theater of Malaga. The Alcazaba is located at a strategic point in the city, on the slopes of Mount Gibralfaro. On the other hand, the Roman Theater, the Gibralfaro Castle and the Alcazaba form a valuable architectural complex full of history.

We will continue the tour through the Torre del Cristo, which is the access door to the lower part, without forgetting the Plaza de Armas, the Torre de los Arcos and the entire upper enclosure of the fortification. Then we will visit the Taifal and Nasrid Palace, also the Granada Rooms, as well as their patios, especially focusing on all historical reminiscences of the place, and, of course, without forgetting its Military Quarter and the Torre del Homenaje in a tour full of history.

'Alkasbah' is a building from the 11th century of the Hammudí Dynasty, therefore, it is located in the middle of the Islamic era. Originally built on Phoenician and Roman remains between 1057 and 1063, it served as an impregnable fort for the Nasrid Kingdom. In addition, being the palace of regents such as Muhammad II Ben al-Ahmar, it was a satellite point of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada. Next, and after the conquest by Fernando El Católico, its time lines would pass into Christian hands.
