BUILDERS: Restoration work has started at the famous Gibralfaro Castle

RESTORATION work has finally begun on Malaga City’s stunning 10th century Gibralfaro Castle.

Vital repairs to deteriorated parts of the building, and improved drainage, are among the priorities of the work.

A total of 17 different parts of the landmark will undergo a facelift, including bricks at the main entrance, tower walls, marble columns, walkways and water pumps.

Meanwhile, visitor information panels are also to be fitted in the ‘Mudejar room’ as part of the €150,000 project granted by the Ministry of Culture.

The adjoining 11th century Alcazaba is also set for some summer TLC, but palatial fortification will not begin being repaired until August.

A total of 12 areas of that building will also be repaired, with a further €150,000 being injected.
