Delve into 11th-century history of the Moorish conquest of Spain at Alcazaba.

Tour the inner labyrinth of the fortress to see impressive Muslim architecture. Wander the gardens full of notable fountains and landscaping. Appreciate panoramic views of the coastline from the fortress walls. Directly in front of the entrance is an old Roman amphitheater that you can tour in addition to the fortress with the purchase of a single ticket.

A very wonderful and suggestive place. I really loved the place! It is equally interesting and intriguing in each of its parts. The outside gives you a beautiful view on the city while the internal part is full of cozy and wonderful gardens where to walk and relax immersed in history. Very amazing place
Great castle. Interesting visit. The Palace is beautiful, though I'm not sure how much is original. Lovely gardens and patios. Thank goodness for the lift up. Free on Sunday after 2 p.m.
You must not miss this visit. If you want to take interior photos without a lot of people in them, it is better to come in the morning at the opening. Beautiful space with little gardens, squirrels and pigeons nested in the walls. Very nice view overlooking the sea and the city. It has a lot off little things similar to Alhambra.
Amazing spot to take some pictures. I do wish the gardens and fountains will be kept in better shape, but the splendor is there. Architecture is amazing to see and tales you back to the era.
If you’re wondering if it’s still a good time to go in January, it is ! We went on 1 Jan so even got to go in for free as it was a Sunday. Even though you can’t see from all the photos, it was a lot more crowded than it usually is. If you don’t mind then try to visit on a Sunday. If you prefer it to be quieter go during the mid week also not during a holiday time period. I’ve been before in October and felt like I nearly had the place to myself. Lovely place, so happy I could return.
