  • I was surprised because on the outside it seemed big, just see gardens... the views of the small town of almeria and little more, they should collect input and have more care monument. It is not a must-see, but Alhambra is obligadisima your visit

  • I expected less of what we saw, is well worth a visit, is quite well preserved. In addition the visit is free.

  • The Alcazaba is the Muslim Palace-fortress, which rises on the slopes of the mountains. And at the top of the mountain stands the castle of Gibralfaro. Palace and fortress are connected by road, surrounded with zigzag walls.
