This is what remains of a fortification that overlooks the city of Malaga. It is nice to roam around the terrains and enjoy the views. We were lucky to find a seat in the shade overlooking the harbour and the sea and in it s...More
I visited Castillo de Gibralfaro during my trip to Malaga. The castle was enormous and the views from the castle were amazing. I've been in many castles and I think that this was the second best castle visit which I have had (the best was...More
...a must if you are in Malaga...there are many many paths in the castle and the views of the city are just fab! They have a really nice cafe with awesome servers (you will need something to drink once you are there...).
Somewhat demanding climb up ascending pathway. Hydration is important as is good footwear. View from top is excellent. Inside the castillo is interesting but not much beyond a walk around the ramparts.
It’s such a long and at times a steep walk, I was amazed to see impromptu walkers wearing flip flops and nursing blisters by the end. It’s amazing history and some fantastic views from up there but it is a poor relation to the Alcazaba....More
Go early for two reasons: 1, It gets much hotter later in the day & it's quite a climb. 2, you'll beat the crowd. Great views over the city & it overlooks a Bullring. There is a walkway around the ramparts, & it has an...More
I really liked our visit to the Castillo. The walk up from town is steep and a bit difficult, so I recommend going earlier in the morning while it is a bit cooler and there is still some shade. Also bring water, but note there...More

All I can really say is that it wasn't difficult to find. The steep path is on the sea side of the climb and there will be lots of people going up or coming down. I recall there being a path or road at the ground level that runs from what would be the front (sea side) to the back (into the town area) and which has an arch. The path is road wide at the bottom and is obviously a path, although not obviously a path to the top of the hill which is on the town side of the arch and the Castillo side of the road. A guide pointed it out to us so best ask to be on the saf side.
