Until the 16th of September we can enjoy the night visit of 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 which was once the residence of kings and rulers, in the light of the moon and the night lighting of the facility, along with the charm of walking at night along its beautiful gardens, walkways 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 of Malaga 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 located on the slopes of Mount Gibralfaro in whose summit is situated the homonymous castle. Both monuments are linked by zigzagging corridor walls.
It’s a totally free and guided tour during which we find characters of the time and there will be volunteers from the association that explain the history and stories of this Arabic fortification.
