Friday is excursion day, part 2: Alcazaba de Málaga

Looking up to the hill from the amphitheatre you will see the Moorish castle, Alcazaba, a huge fortress/castle built in the 11th century and used by Muslim governors (See picture from post about amphitheatre) . 
 
So, when we were at it with the amphitheatre, we also went to see the Alcazaba too, with a guide…in SPANISH, of course! Haha. Think possibly I understood some more this week, compared to last Friday at the cathedral and that’s a nice feeling! By the way, the entrance fee is soo cheap. 2 euros for adults, but only 0,60 for students! Ridiculous! (However, the school paid this time too!)

It’s absolutely beautiful, and apart from spectacular architecture and beautifully decorated rooms it includes different exhibitions, and stunningly landscaped gardens.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves, it’s truly beautiful! 

 
 
 

 
I love the Arab influence you can see in the architecture various places in the city!

  2. Så fine bilder ! Jeg vet godt hvordan det er å ikke forstå noe ! Holder på med mitt andre år i Frankrike nå, så for et år siden var det ikke mye jeg forsto da læreren pratet. Eller noen andre for den saks skyld. Og det er jo ingen som snakker engelsk... Men det går bedre da, nå snakker jeg jo fransk.
