The Castillo de Gibralfaro stands at a height of 130 metres on top of a hill in the city of Málaga and is part of the ‘Alcazaba’ (Citadel).

It has double walls and In its prime it sustained a garrison of up to 5,000 men. The castle, much of it renovated, is in excellent condition and well worth a visit. Inside the enclosure there is also a small museum.
