We did not realise this monument was not part of the Alcazaba Fortress. We climbed the seemingly endless steps through the local residences following the sight of the large statue of Jesus on top of the hill. When we got there the views are 360....More

Worth a visit but very steep if you are not fit and able. Fantastic views of Almeria and the coast. I was surprised that it was free to enter and staff very helpful.
