Defensive Walls and Towers of Alcazaba in Málaga, Spain

Encircling Alcazaba are .8 miles of curtain walls punctuated by protruding watchtowers. The best way to appreciate their formidable structure is by walking along Paseo de Juan Temboury. This cypress-lined street also provides elevated views of the Port of Málaga. It ends at the beginning of a long, uphill walkway leading to Gibralfaro Castle. As an alternative, you can walk down through the Gardens of the Dark Door. Seen here is Torre del Cristo. After the four-month Siege of Málaga ended in August of 1487, a celebratory mass was conducted inside of Christ’s Tower.
