    Must See While In Almeria
    This reminded me of the Alhambra in Granada but on a smaller scale. A visit could take you anything from a hour to two hours depending on how quick you walk. It’s free to enter but not disabled friendly because of the steep steps you have to climb to enter. There is a free downloadable audio guide as most of the signs don’t have a English translation. In the summer months it’s advisable to take water with you as there are not many shaded areas and nowhere inside to purchase anything either. There are a couple of drinking water fountains but the water doesn’t taste the best.

    Worth the effort
    Nice reconstruction. Unfortunately, it was extremely hot, so it was hard to go up all the steps. This is not an easy place to visit. We got a very good parking space right at the entrance and we still did not visit the entire place due to the stairs. Well, we are old! It is free. Be careful not to get lost in the back neighborhood full of trash and probably dangerous.

    A beautiful glimpse into Almeria history
    This is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Almeria. We visited early in the morning shortly after opening (9:00) and spent approx 1.5 hours wandering through the three section. It was very quiet and peaceful, especially the gardens. I'd recommend going early, if possible. This will help you avoid the heat of the day when shade can be limited. Large tour groups tend to start to visit from 10:30, on the day we visited there was a cruise ship docked in the port and so there was multiple tour groups coming in as we left. There is limited signage at the attraction so I recommend you either download the guide online or read up a bit in advance. There is a section in the museum off Plaza de la Constitution which explains more about the Alcazaba including a model - this is also free to enter. You get amazing views of the city and the port from the Alcazaba. This is not to be missed!

Just fantastic, wow, worth the visit to Almeria.
The city has done a wonderful restoration, the Islamic heritage is amazing.
But be aware, not to be in Alemeria on a Monday, as all is closed

This is an amazing place to visit. Free entry and such fabulous views! It is a steep incline to get in, but worth the walk. The cats that live in the Alcazaba are very friendly and like to be stroked! Fabulous views over Almeria from the top!

Well worth a visit but it's a shame a lot of it was cordoned off for renovation. I'd give it at least a couple of years before I would consider visiting again.

This place is simply amazing, the views and the heritage architecture is incredible, lots of great appreciation and a real sense of history. We went in June and it was a hot day, lots of walking and sweating so take lots of water and have lots of breaks as you will be walking around everywhere. It's not really disable friendly and you will need to be fit.

Really beautiful with all the water, plants and cats :)
You can easily spend 2h there. Not too many explanations were in English, but there are free audio guides to download.
