La Alcazaba - La Alcazaba is a military fortress build by the Moors in the 11th century on the remains of a Romans fortress. The fortress lies on a hill top with good view over the town and the sea and originally consisted of 3 protecting walls (whereas 2 are still remaining), more than 100 towers and a superior part with a residential area including 3 palaces.

Gibralfaro - The Gibralfaro Castle / Fortress is situated just next to La Alcazaba which it is connected to by ducts from two of its towers. Originally the place where the Gibralfaro lies is thought to have hosted a lighthouse build by the Phoenicians. On the remains of this lighthouse a fortress was build by Abderramán III and was later reconstructed as a castle by Yasuf I in the 14th century.

Roman Theater - The Roman Theater is located just below La Alcazaba. It was not discovered until 1951 in spite of it's size with a radius of 31 meters and height of 19 meters. Studies have shown that it hasn't been used since the 3rd century and that the Moors used elements from the Theater in the construction of La Alcazaba.
