Until the 16th of September we can enjoy a night visit to the Alcazaba in Malaga. During this extraordinary visit, organized by the Cultural Association Zegri, we can enjoy the ancient XI century Moorish fortress located in the foothills of Mount Gibralfaro. This fortress was once the residence of kings and rulers.
Sometimes they organize special events for those who want to visit this fortress at night. A charming walk under the moonlight along its beautiful gardens and silent courtyards.
The Citadel is one of the most important monuments of Malaga and touring the ancient fortress-palace of the Muslim era at night gives it a touch of magic, mystery and special charm, accompanied by the fragrance of jasmine and night queen. This visit also gives us panoramic views of the city and the fully illuminated bay.
The Alcazaba in Malaga (official guide from malagaweb) is one of the best preserved Muslim buildings in Spain and the rooms and grounds are of exquisite beauty. Built on an earlier fortification of Phoenician origin. The citadel is on the slopes of Mount Gibralfaro in whose summit is the homonymous castle.
It’s a totally free and guided tour during which we find characters of the time. There will be volunteers from the association that explain the history and stories of this Arabic fortification.
