The third and final primary point of interest at the Alhambra is the Alcazaba. Best described as the military area within the palace grounds, Alcazaba is the oldest part of the fortress and has the best position on the hill, overlooking the city. During your trip to Alcazaba, walk to the top of the watchtower for unmatched views of Plaza Nueva, the Albaicín, and the Sierra Nevada mountains beyond. Apart from the watchtower, the Alcazaba holds the Bucket Tower, the Arms Square, the urban military district, the terrace of the Arms Gate and the Ramparts ́ garden. The Alcazaba played an instrumental role in the Andalusian history and a visit to this fortress will help you better understand the culture of Granada.
