The fortress Alcazaba was built under the reign of sultan Bādīs in the 11th century. Above the fortress there is the castle called Gibralfaro. It formerly was used as accommodation for the troops who served to protect the fortress. The fortress is connected to the castle via a zigzag-shaped battlement. Since the Alcazaba had two thick walls and eight defense towers, it was considered at that time to be invincible. The fortress is considered one of the most visited buildings in Malaga.
