Andalucia castles to get a facelift

A COUPLE of Malaga’s castles are to be restored to their former glory.

Antequera’s Arab fort Alcazaba will see its battlements rebuilt in 2011 at a cost of 750,000 euros.

Visitors will be able to walk along the defensive fortifications, taking themselves back to the last days of the reconquista.

Meanwhile, over 100,000 euros have been allocated on renovating the Miraflores castle in El Burgo.

The remote mountainous stronghold will be rid of weeds, cleaned and restored to its original form.
