Explore the lavishly decorated residence of Moorish sultans and other rulers in this thousand-year-old fortress THE ALCAZABA FORTRESS built on the remains of a Roman settlement. The Alcazaba, in the centre of Málaga’s historical district, is an imposing edifice that was built between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries and that served as a fortress and palace. This fortress structure, whose name in Arabic means citadel, is usually one of the city's historic monuments and is definitely much visited because of its history and beauty.
Built between the eighth and 11th hundreds of years this palatial fortress was named Alcazaba, the Persia word for citadel. Here lived the rulers of Muslim Metersálaga. The building that dates from the Muslim period can be located at the foot of the Gibralfaro hill, crowned by the Arab defence works to which the Alcazaba is certainly connected by a walled passage known as the Coracha. The military-style structure was fortified with double stone walls and tall towers, erected to see enemies approach.
It has a very irregular floor plan, with all its living quarters at different levels in order to conform to the terrain and concentrated within two walled compounds. With the Roman Theatre and the Aduana Customs Building, this special corner offers the chance to observe Roman, Arab and Renaissance culture, all within a few yards of each other. Take a historic journey by entering through the fortress’ magnificent gates and explore gardens, towers and patios. The most notable sights in ALCAZABA inside the first of these are the Arch of Christ, so called because for years it offered as a chapel, and the Patio de Armas (Parade Ground), which like very much of the premises has now been turned into an Arabic-style garden. According to Arab historians, it was constructed between 1057 and 1063 at the instructions of Badis, King of the Berber Taifa of Granada.
