Alcazaba Almeria - Moorish Fort.

Today's destination was a visit to the spectacular Alcazaba Almeria, an ancient Moorish fort second only to the Alhambra at Granada.

It is a little complicated to access by car, and we found the easiest way was to park the car near to the port area and complete the journey to the entrance on foot. It is up the narrow streets directly opposite the port, and you should walk up Calle De La Reina which will take you right to the entrance steps.

If you are an EU resident, and have your passport with you, then entrance is free of charge.

The monument is in relatively excellent condition and dates from the Muslim occupation of Spain of the 11th century, together with some Roman artefacts.

It reminded us of the Mogul Dynasty forts of a similar era that we visited in India.

Well worth a visit if you find yourself near to the city of Almeria.

Lunch today was at a restaurant of world renown - burger and fries at the Golden Arches.
