Founded by Calipha Abd-ar-Rahman III, this Spanish city began as a harbour town. The Alcazaba of Almeria is the second-largest Moorish fortress in the region. One of the sights of the Second Crusade, the city passed back and forth between Muslims and Christians until the late 15th century, when it surrendered to Ferdinand and Isabella, and officially became part of Spain. In recent years, tourism and agriculture have turned this city into a flourishing coastal town. The main sights of the city are found in its history, with air-raid shelters and cathedrals giving you access to the many different eras in the city's history. In addition to the many historical fortresses and palaces located in and around the city, the beautiful Mediterranean beaches of Las Salinas and La Almadrava de Montelava are also must-see attractions.
