On this accessible, self-guided tour, you will have the chance to explore one of the iconic monuments of the southern city of Malaga, Gibralfaro Castle.

This castle was built in the 14th century and has variously been used as a lighthouse, a fortress and a home for the Spanish royal family. The castle sits on top of a hill above the city, and from the castle walls, visitors can enjoy panoramic views across the city and towards the mountains and the sea.

Designated a site of historic interest since 1931, the fortress is divided into two parts, an upper and lower courtyard. The upper courtyard has an Interpretation Center where visitors can learn about the history of the castle and some of the people that lived in it, and you can also walk up the main tower. The lower courtyard has the barracks for the troops, as well as stables and a watch tower.

Gibralfaro Castle is accessible to visitors with disabilities. There are 3 accessible parking bays, and a wheelchair-accessible pathway leading from the car park to the castle. An accessible bathroom can be found next to the onsite coffee shop.
