Malaga: Alcazaba

Above: The view from the top of La Alcazaba ruins.

La Alcazaba: The citadel. Built primarily in the 11th Century by the Hammudid dynasty, added to by the Nazari.

We wandered from our gorgeously situated apartment in old town Malaga towards the palm trees and parrots…and stumbled upon the walls of la Alcazaba!
