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.
