Emblematic monuments of Malaga city

On this post we will talk about the four most emblematic monuments of Malaga city.

 

Alcazaba

The Alcazaba was the palace of the Muslim rulers, which did also work as a maximum security fortress, located in Gibralfaro hill. It was built in XI century on a roman structure. It is composed by 110 main towers, standing out the Homage Tower.

Gibralfaro Castle

The Gibralfaro Castle was, at the very beginning, a sentry post. It did exist in the roman period, but it was the Muslims who equipped it with its fortress structure. The hill was called “Jabal-Faruk” (lighthouse hill).

The Catholic kings provided the city with the heraldry, and the Gibralfaro Castle was the place chosen for it.

The Cathedral presents Gothic, Renaissance and baroque artistic styles. Between its master pieces, one of the most relevant is the set of chairs of the chorus, by Pedro de Mena.

The North tower measures 84 meters, which is the second Andalucia’s higher after the Giralda, in Sevilla. The Southern tower is not finished, since building work was stopped because of royal order. This is the reason why this cathedral is popularly known as “La Manquita” (“one-armed”).
