Alcazaba tour

“If you haven’t been to the Alcazaba, you haven’t been to Malaga” 

With our Alcazaba Tour, you have the possibility of visiting the most iconic landmark of the city.

Go back through time and experience the beauty of this historical monument. 

Discovering this Moorish palace means discovering the heart of Malaga; it is impossible to understand the history of the city without visiting it. 

A panoramic view of the sea, gorgeous details of Islamic architecture, relaxing fountains and gardens…there are a lot of things to discover that will leave you breathless!

Visit the Alcazaba of Malaga and let our tour guides tell you about life during the Islamic period of Spain, how the palace works and some secret legends of this ancient place.

We organize daily visits, private and school tours in the Alcazaba.

The tours are mainly provided in Spanish and English. To do the tour in other languages (French, Italian or German), please contact us first.

You must reserve your tour in advance. For more info or any questions, do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail or Whatsapp,

I went on the free walking tour with Imma and I had a great time! Imma was really friendly and her style was both... humorous and informative; there was certainly a lot of laughter during the tour! I learnt a lot about the history and culture of Malaga (and also Andalusia in general), and I think the different stops on the tour were really well chosen. The tour lasted 1 hour 30 mins and was the perfect way of getting an insight into this fantastic city!read more

Best free tours in Málaga! Not only very entertaining, you also learn a lot about Málaga's most interesting places,... its history and hidden charms! I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Málaga. Also: Ask the guide for recommendations for tapas places, bars, museums etc. Their tips were really useful for me during my stay in the city :)read more

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there Alcazaba Tour every day?

Yes! Every day we offer the Alcazaba Tour at 16:00 pm.

As a general rule when the groups are less than 4 people the tour may be canceled, but no worries – rarely happens.

It is necessary to book the Alcazaba tour before?

Yes, for two reasons:

1. This is not like the Free Tour, if there are no booking, the tour guide does not go to the meeting point. Usually, we are there because someone reserved but the only way to be 100% sure is booking in advance.

2. If you are late or you don’t find the meeting point, you can always contact with your guide. 

How do I find you?

You will find a guide with a red t-shirt and umbrella of Malaga Adventures at the Glass Pyramid in front of the Roman Theatre.

We recommend you to come 10 minutes before at the meeting point

Where does the visit end?

The visit ends at the viewpoint of the Alcazaba. There feel free to ask to your guide all the questions or the information that you want to know to enjoy your vacation.

What happens if I am late for the tour?

Don’t worry, who hasn’t been late sometimes?

First thing to do if is possible, try to send us a message by Whatsapp to let the guide know that you’re late. 

If not possible don’t worry, usually the guide is buying the tickets at the entrance of the Alcazaba that is very close or you will find him/her at the first point of the tour. 

If still you can’t find the guide, you can go to the our tour or at the next hour, or the day after. Just let us know and we will make another reservation

Can I come to the Alcazaba Tour with a stroller?

Well, even if it’s not impossible if you can avoid it is better, because the Alcazaba is full of stairs and the floor is irregular.

Does the visit imply a great physical effort?

No, during our tours come also children or people with mobility problems and they don’t have any problems. 

Additionally, our tour guides always will check that everyone feels well during the visit.

What happens if it rains?

Usually if it rains, there are no problems also because in Málaga there are just two options:

Option A: It rains a little and we can do the visit without any inconvenience;

Option B: It is the Universal Flood and it seems that the sky is going to fall. 

If we check that the day of the tour is expected a very strong storm, we will contact you and postpone the visit when the weather is good.


Can I go away before the end of the tour?

Don’t worry, we can understand that you can have some inconvenience and you need to leave the tour before the end. 

It happens to everyone at least once. 

For this reason, when you come to the tour, just let our tour guide know that you will leave before. For us the only important thing is that you enjoy while discovering Málaga for the time that you can.

Alcazaba Tour: Important Information

  • Everyday we realize the Alcazaba tour in Spanish and English. Moreover, our tour guides speak Italian, French and German. If the day of the tour there are a lot of travelers of one of these languages and we have enough guides, there could be the possibility to realize the tour in one of them, but this does not happen every time. For this reason, we recommend if you want a guided tour in Italian, French or German, to book it as a Private Tour at a convenient price. For more info click here.


  • The booking for the Alcazaba tour is necessary  to be 100% sure that you have an assured spot. Sometimes, when tourists come without reservation, they have to wait for the next tour. We know that it’s a pity but we don’t like our guide takes more than 25 people, it’s not respectful for who booked.


  • The entrance of the Alcazaba is not included in the price of the tour. The ticket is 3,50€ and the guide will buy it before the beginning of the tour. If the group has 10 people or more, there is the group discount and the ticket is 2,50€. There is a discount also for retired people and students.
