The Alcazaba is a fortress, which was built in the mid-11th Century by the Moorish Sultan Badis.
The castle stands on a hill range that rises above the city to the east, and is connected by a Coracha (reinforced transition between two castles or a castle and a water point) with the Gibralfaro, a second castle.
The Gibralfaro Castle is the ruin of a castle from the 14th century and designed by Yusuf I of Granada. It is located on a hill within the city limits of the Andalusian city of Malaga.
From the castle walls, you have a unique view of Malaga and the bullfight arena.
Christian conquerors edified Malaga's cathedral in 1528 over a mosquet.
Although in the original plans two towers were planned, later for lack of money only one was completed earning the Cathedral its name "La Manquita" (little one-armed lady).
