Málaga’s Alcazaba is an Arabic citadel located at the foot of the Gibralfaro hill. It dates to the time of Moorish occupation when it was built by the Hammudid dynasty in the early 11th century. With its double walls and massive entry fortifications, the architecture of the Alcazaba is very distinctive of military architecture in the Taifa period. It is a very interesting sight to watch, particularly the Nazari palace, where you can explore three courtyards: the Patio de los Surtidores (Courtyard of the Fountains), Patio de los Naranjos (Courtyard of the Orange Trees) and the Patio de la Alberca (Courtyard of the Pool).
