The Castle of Gibralfaro is a fortress located in the city of Malaga, Spain. It was built in the fourteenth century to house troops and protect the Alcazaba, due to widespread use of artillery. The fortress was enlarged and converted into a castle by King Nasrid Yusuf I in 1340. In 1931 it was declared a historic monument.
