Alcazaba

Interesting
From its ideal location at the top of the hill, the Aalcazaba overlooks Almería and the bay. Abd-er-Rahmán III had the fortress built in the 10C, which was enlarged by Soliman I Musta'in, who created a magnificent Moorish palace. Finally, after the Reconquest, the Catholic Kings built a Christian alcazar. Explore the remains in the three fortified walls and, from the walkways, enjoy the magnificent views.
