The undoubted jewel in the crown is the 'Alcazaba'. This enormous fortress dominates the city, standing as it does on a hill overlooking the town and the sea. It was built in the tenth century but, over the centuries, it had further enhancements added such as a Moorish palace and, in the time of the Catholic Kings, a Christian palace.
