La Alcazaba is a overwhelming building which most part of its structure belongs to the 11th century. It was the palace-fortress where most of the city Moor governors lived. It is sited on a hill and perfectly adapted to the topography with its two walled constructions. The lower part completely surrounds the upper part where the Palace is. There is a lift inside it to get there from the Calle Guillén Sotelo, just behind the Town Hall.
