We visited the castle in a very hot July day, and decided to climb the steps/ hill to get to the top. There's plenty of stopping points along the way! The view from the top was amazing! And a great way to see what Bull...More

If you're heading up there I would avoid going at the middle of the day as its quite steep and there's not a lot of shade along the way. But worth going for the amazing views over Malaga its a lot higher than you think!...More

We paid €7.10 for two of us which included admission to Alcazaba and the Castillo de Gibralfaro, bargain! We spent a good couple of hours wandering round the two buildings, it's a steep walk to the Castillo but you're rewarded with fantastic views of Malaga,...More

We cheated and got the Red Bus to drop us off just outside, otherwise it is a good stretch of the legs. There is not too much to see by way of artefacts, but a walk along the perimeter wall is well worth it, shame...More

Endless castle walls and amazing views. Be prepared to walk at least 15 till you reach the top (and could be a bit slippery). The small bar there was so cute, the staff the friendliest I've seen in Spain. Totally worth the sweat.
