The best observation tower in Málaga is without any question the Gibralfaro Castle. A tour of its crenulated walls and its towers will afford a view of practically the whole city, with the exception only of some of the eastern neighbourhoods that are hidden behind the mountains. Every indication is that this fortress, which was built in the fourteenth century, was erected to defend the Alcazaba. It is linked to it by a zigzag barbican, thus designed to avoid the necessity of costly “albarranas” (detached towers).
