La Alcazaba de Málaga
It has received extensive restoration as it was in fairly parlous condition by the 19th century, and it was due to such works that the remains of the extensive Roman theatre were uncovered beneath its walls. Indeed much of the stone for the palace was removed directly from the old Roman city it was built upon. The palace dates from nearly a 1000 years ago, but the current form, with its palace built around courtyards and patios dates from the Nasrid time around 1280. A visit to the Alcazaba gives you a vivid idea of the sophistication and power of the culture that dominated for over 700 years. The views are spectacular and the military significance of such a place is plain to see. It is open from 0900hrs to 2000hrs in summer months but shuts at 1800hrs from November to March. Admission 2.20 € concessions. 0,60€
