The Alcazaba of Almería is found around 90 meters above from the city. Next to the Alhambra in Granada it is one of the main castles in the south of Spain. It was constructed in the X century by the Califa Abderramán III. It offered shelter to 20,000 people at one time.
In 1522, a great part of the Castle was destroyed by an earthquake. Since the 50's a large portion has been restored.
It's a wonderful place and a great way to spend the afternoon. Thankfully, it's not as crowded as the Alhambra in Granada.
The Alcazaba is open from the 16th of June to the 30th September from 10.00 - 14.00 and 17.00 - 20.00 O'clock. From the 1st of October to the 15th of June it's open from 9.30 - 14.30 and 15.30 - 19.00 o'clock.
