Guided Tour of the Alcazaba

365 reviews | 2,450 travellers
Wonderful visit, there is no better option than seeing a historical monument accompanied by a person who tells and details every situation that occurred there in the past. It is my first time doing this type of guided tour and without a doubt we know that we will repeat. A ten for the guide and for everything learned thanks to him.

Itinerary

Meet your guide at the indicated time on Almanzor street, outside the city's iconic historical heritage site, the Alcazaba. The biggest Arab citadel in Spain, construction of the immense fortress began in the 10th century, and it was taken over and updated by the Catholic Monarchs after the Reconquista.

We'll admire the remains of the Jayran Walls that lead up to the Arab complex. Inside the Alcazaba, you'll explore its three different walled enclosures while your expert guide's fascinating explanations take you back in time to the era of Islamic Andalusia.

Strolling through the gardens of the first enclosure, you'll reach the Muro de la Vela, or 'Wall of the Sail', which historically housed an enormous bell that would alert the population to important or threatening events in Almeria. The second enclosure is home to the Odalisque's viewpoint, from which you can enjoy magnificent views over the city and the port.

We'll finish the guided tour of the Alcazaba with a panoramic view of the city and the seaport from the Baluarte del Saliente. After a few photos, we'll return to the Plaza de la Constitución to end the tour.
