is a modern city nestled at the foot of a mountain. At the top of
that mountain is a tremendous Alcazaba, which is probably the best surviving
example of Moorish military fortification (picturded left). The construction
has three huge walled enclosures, in the second of which are the remains
of a mosque, converted to a chapel by the Reyes Católicos (Catholic
Kings of Spain). In the eleventh century, when Almería was an independent
kingdom and the wealthiest, most commercially active city of Spain, this
citadel contained immense gardens and palaces and was home to some 20,000
people. Its grandeur was reputed to rival the court of Granada but comparisons
are impossible since little beyond the walls and towers remains, the last
remnants of stuccowork having been sold off by the locals in the eighteenth
century. View featured hotels
