As a lookout post, we can consider it related to the origins of Málaga as a human settling. It must have already existed previous to the Roman dominance, but the Arabs gave it a structure of strength. The mount received the name of “Jabal-Faruk” (lighthouse mountain). In the first half of the XIV century, Yusuf Y built the castle and other outbuilings. It originally acted as a lighthouse and military barracks.The Catholic Kings choose the Castillo de Gibralfaro for the coat of arms they gave the city in the late XV century.

Started in the 16th century on the site of the former mosque. Of the mosque, only the Patio de los Naranjos survives, a small courtyard of fragrant orange trees. It took almost 200 years finish the cathedral but one of the two bell towers was left incomplete, hence the cathedral’s well-worn nickname, “La Manquita” (the one-armed lady). Inside, the fabulous domed ceiling soars 40m into the air, while the vast colonnaded nave houses an enormous cedar-wood choir. Aisles give access to 15 chapels with gorgeous 18th-century retables and religious art. Climb the 200 steps to reach the tower to enjoy stunning panoramic views of the city skyline and coast.
