Gibralfaro Castle – Malaga

The Gibralfaro Castle It is located on the top of the Mount of the same name, in the city of Malaga. Its construction was carried out on a previous fortification and dates from the fourteenth century. It was intended to protect the Alcazaba, to which he was linked by a walled road. But it was conquered by the Catholic Monarchs at the end of the 15th century, who assigned it to military garrison and coast guard, until Alfonso XIII ceded it to the city in 1925.
