An old Arabic fortress that dominates the city from its vantage point on the hill above the bay, it has now become a symbol of the modern city and an important tourist attraction. Sultan Badis, ruler of the Moorish province of Granada was responsible for having it built. It was declared a national heritage site in 1931. Restoration work began the same year and was completed in 1947. It's well worth wandering around the site to see how even earlier Roman remains were incorporated into the Moorish building work, and there are attractive gardens where you can sit and rest.
