La Alcazaba de Málaga, España

Greetings! I’m continuing my weekly series of posts from our trip to Spain last month. We started our two week adventure in Málaga and took advantage of a couple of sites that had free entry on Sunday.  One was the Picasso museum, the other, the alcazaba. This week’s post focuses on the alcazaba.  Built in the 11th century, it served as the fortress and home of many Moorish rulers until 1487 when it was captured by the Spanish king and queen, Ferdinand and Isabella.  Please come along for a photo tour of this architectural wonder.

First, some photos of the port from the alcazaba:

And from the inside, the beautiful Moorish architecture:

And a few more:

Two last photos, one from the Paseo del Parque and the other of the Roman Theatre with the alcazaba behind it:
