This 12th C. palace built by the Moors was a gem of ancient Arab architecture. The fortress, palace, and surrounding gardens were all worth the price of admission.

We booked our visit 6 months in advance and we went to pickup our tickets the day before; very crowded but worth the visit. You can spend the entire day if you wish, however after 3 hours we gave up and went to eat.
