La Alcazaba is one of the largest fortified complexes in Spain with 40,000 m2 of surface and its construction has been carried out over almost 500 years from the Islamic conquest to the conquest of the Catholic Monarchs in 1492.
We will be able to enjoy the 3 enclosures of the Alcazaba.
The first thing we will go through will be the Justice Gate since it was the entrance gate to the fortress and is a replica of the Justice Gate of the Alhambra in Granada.
We will cross the large gardens of the first enclosure, which is the largest of the three and have also followed the design of the Generalife gardens in the Alhambra. From here we will observe the Cerro de San Cristóbal, as well as the remains of the Jayrán wall, the wall that surrounded the city of Al-Mariyat.
We will advance to the second enclosure through the Sailing Wall and we will see the Quibla wall until we reach the area of residence of the rulers. Likewise, we will see the cistern and the Hermitage of San Juan, a hermitage rebuilt by the Catholic Monarchs during the reconquest, such as the pool and the gardens that decorate the site. We will contemplate the remains of the rooms of the Kings as the great wall of the Odalisque.
To finish, we will visit the third enclosure, the highest part of the monumental complex, the most recent of all, since it was the Catholic Monarchs who ordered the construction of this Castle with several towers with arrow slits.
Also, you will visit the areas where the famous Game of Thrones series has been recorded.
Finally, our guide will take you to the area where you can see the city's seaport.
