Hanging Out in the Alcazaba

DSC_0414Almeria is an ancient town in Andalusia, on the southern Spanish coast. The top attraction, and the focus of our visit, was to the Alcazaba fortress. This area was under Muslim control beginning in the 9th century and the caliph built a huge protective fortress to protect the town. Even though much of the complex was destroyed by an earthquake in 1522, the ruins remain and make for a fascinating visit.
