How to get there:

Located within the precincts of the Málaga Alcazaba, it can be reached from the centre of Málaga, arriving at the bullring, along the Paseo de Reding towards Gibralfaro Castle. The Parador is next to the castle of the same name. Another more simple way to find it, if coming from the Algeciras dual carriageway or the Antequera, Granada, Córdoba, Seville and Madrid road, or by the N-340 from Almería and Nerja, is to follow the 'Ronda de Málaga' and to turn off at the 'Limonar' exit.
