The Alcazaba of Malaga is a military Muslim palace built on an earlier fortification of Phoenician-Punic origin. It was constructed mostly in the eleventh century under the leadership of King the Berber Taifa of Granada, Ben Badis Habús, who ordered the construction of the fortress between the years 1057 and 1063. Today this is one of the landmarks of the city of Malaga.
It is located on Mount Gibralfaro, near the summit of Gibralfaro, linked by a walled corridor known as the Coracha. Next door you will find the Roman Theater of Malaga, the city park and just in front the port.
The Alcazaba is a building built on the rock, one of the most important Muslim military buildings preserved in Spain.
