You will pass through the Puerta de la Bóveda (Gate of the Vault), a typical Moorish puerta en recodo (a defensive castle entrance designed to delay the arrival of attackers - after entering through an arch, they come up against a blank wall, and have to make a sharp turn to gain access to the next part of the fortress). A little higher up, you'll pass through the Puerta de la Columnas (Gate of the Columns), which was built using Roman marble columns to hold up the Moorish horseshoe arches. You will then enter the lower precincts of the Alcazaba, via the second puerta en recodo under the Torre del Cristo (Christ's Tower). This was where the first mass was celebrated following the victory over the town by the Reyes Catolicos, and continued to be used as a chapel. The lower precinct follows the contours of the hill, and you can stop and rest at the Plaza de Armas, which is now a garden with fountains and a bastion on the south side which once defended the coast. You will follow the little cobbled paths through the Puerta de los Cuartos de Granada (Gate of the Halls of Granada, which lead into the upper precinct where the pathway passes through attractive landscaped gardens. Inside the Nazari palace, at the top of the fortress, you can explore three courtyards: the Patio de los Surtidores (Courtyard of the Fountains), which features a row of caliphal arches leading to the Torre de la Armadura Mudéjar (Mudejar Armoury Tower) with its 16th-century carved wooden ceiling. The Torre de Maldonaldo (Maldonado Tower), with its original marble columns and balconies, offers the best views so far. The next two courtyards in the palace are the Patio de los Naranjos (Courtyard of the Orange Trees) and the Patio de la Alberca (Courtyard of the Pool). The palace is quite extensive with arches, towers, gates, and original marble columns.

This was such a fun, interactive and unique way to tour a city! It's also perfect to do with children (we have twin 3-year olds and a 5-year old). They stayed entertained trying to solve clues. I especially loved the recommendations given for places to stop and eat, have a drink, do some shopping, etc. Highly recommend!

Nice guide who showed us around Malaga and let us taste different things. It is smart to do it the first day in the city, as you will then find the places you should see

Victor gave us a great food walking tour. Lots of information about Malaga and delicious snacks and drinks. Definitely worth it, highly recommended.

Done with two children aged 6 and 9. They loved it... And now know the city like the back of their hand.

Jose was fabulous! Great walk with nest information and delicious nibbles. Highly recommend.
