Alcázar

Recommended
It is from here that you will have the most beautiful view of the Cathedral. The Alcázar, which was part of the fortified 4000m long surrounding wall erected by the Almohades in the 12C, is accessible through the city gate, a typical Almohade right-angled gateway. Within its precincts, the mosque is a fine example of the spartan art of the early Almohades. At the far end of the garden are baths built in the 12C in the Roman style.
