IACPOS implements new automatic machines in the Castle of Gibralfaro and Alcazaba of Malaga

Alcazaba of Malaga

Its name in Arabic means ‘citadel’ and it is one of the most visited places by tourists who come to this Andalusian city. It is located next to the Gibralfaro Castle, to which it was linked by a corridor, near the Roman Theater and in front of the Customs building.

It was built between 1057 and 1063 at the request of the Berber Taifa king of Granada, Badis. Pieces from the nearby Roman theater were used in its construction and part of those columns and capitals can still be seen today. It underwent several reforms turning it into a fortress palace organized in rectangular patios, gardens and walls.

Gibralfaro Castle

This castle dates back to the 14th century and its main function was to house the troops and protect the Alcazaba. Its name is due to the lighthouse that was on its peak, Jabal-Faruk, mount of the lighthouse.

This place was already used by the Phoenicians and Romans as a settlement, but it was not until 1340, by order of the Nasrid king Yusuf I, that it was converted into a real fortress. Long considered the most impregnable castle in the Iberian Peninsula.

IACPOS solution implementation

IACPOS has launched 5 new automatic machines for the sale of tickets through unattended sales stalls in two such emblematic locations in the city of Malaga as the Gibralfaro Castle and the Alcazaba of Malaga.

It should be noted that this new implementation is added to those already existing in these locations and that it completely renewed both the aesthetics and the old operations after the implementation of the IACPOS solution.

This adjudication carries with it both the part of collection and the maintenance thereof. IACPOS unattended kiosks allow both cash and card payment.

Likewise, IACPOS is in charge of both the facilities and their telecommunications.
