There is a majestic keep, a triple line of defence walls and large gardens that you can walk through. Another fortress-like building is the Cathedral with its many towers and protected paths. Like the fortress, it experienced destruction in an earthquake in the 1500s and was rebuilt.
To get the most out of the city and the surrounding area, such as the resort of Mojacar, a range of transport options are available to travellers. You may hire a rental car from the airport, hop in a taxi or take a bus from the airport into the city centre. If renting a car, you'll find that you can access the A7 motorway with ease. The A7 motorway provides a link between many of the cities along the Spanish coast. Alternatively, bus line 20 links the city centre to the airport and the service is fairly regular. Many of the major attractions in the city are easily accessible. The Alcazaba and the Cathedral are both centrally located, along with other historical attractions such as the city museum. Embark on a journey of discovery at the city museum which houses exhibits with Prehistoric artefacts and information on the Roman, Greek and Muslim ages. Alternatively, stroll along the Paseo de Coches, the seaside promenade, and enjoy the local beaches. If you enjoy nature, a visit to Cabo de Gata-Níjar Park will not disappoint. Stretching across over 230 square miles, the park encompasses the municipal areas of Almeria, Nijar and Carboneras.
