The city of Almería, once an Arab stronghold, has seen ancient civilizations come and go over the many centuries of its existence. Your tour of this interesting city will be on foot, as motor coaches are not permitted in the Old Town. Visit the Alcazaba Palace of the Moorish Kings (Caliphs) and stop at the cathedral, which is a Gothic building with Renaissance façades. Oddly, the latter was constructed with a dual purpose as incompatible as its architecture. It was both a place of worship and a bastion of defense against Berber pirates. The 17th-century Convent of Las Puras, the Episcopal Palace, the Royal Hospital, the Cervantes Theatre and the Mercantile Center are all points of interest you will see along your walk.
