Castle is built at a significant height, it takes some time to walk up to the fort but it is worth as you get a good view of Malaga from there.

The trip up to the top took about 20-30 minutes. It can be a little steep at parts but it is all on a stable path. The Castle is much bigger than it looks from below. Walking around the Castle walls provides a panaromic view...More

Hiking to the summit is a bit of an exercise, but well rewarded with awesome views of the city and the nearby bullring. The castle itself is more of a ruin, but some parts are still well preserved. Marvelous retreats with greenery, fountains and plants...More

The second time we have been in the last few years. Go early to avoid the hottest part of the day. The 35 bus takes you up to the castle for 1.30 euro. This way you can enjoy walking the walls without being exhausted. The...More

All I can really say is that it wasn't difficult to find. The steep path is on the sea side of the climb and there will be lots of people going up or coming down. I recall there being a path or road at the ground level... More
