At the peak of the Gibralfaro hill stands the Castillo de Gibralfaro, a large castle dating back to the 8th century. There isn?t much in terms of ornate decoration within the interior, yet the ramparts yields a nice view of the city below, and there?s a small museum with a display of how Malaga?s maritime history has evolved throughout the centuries.

Cost: 1.80, 60cents for students

Bottom-line: Not all that impressive architecturally, but provides a good uphill hike and some nice views.

Address: Cerro de Gibralfaro
Directions: Next to the Parador of Gibralfaro
