Entrance to the castle is just below the massive tower evoking classical Arabic castle.
After you pass through the gate of the castle, you come to relatively large gardens. Very nice will be the view from the walls on the opposite hill San Cristobal, where the fortification of the old town leads.
From the gardens you will pass through another gate into the part of the castle, where are only remains of the former beautiful buildings. Unfortunately, towers which would provide the best view of the castle, are closed.
In the castle is an interesting nooks reminiscent of the old era of conquer machinery and slingshots.
Through the third gate you get to the most fortified part of the castle. There is a massive tower and at the very western end another one with cannons securing three world sides.
From the cannon tower are nice views to the mountains behind the town. There is also visible massive bridge of motorway A7.
In the south direction is visible only small remnants of walls. Most of them had to retreat modern development long ago. Port of Almeria, which is also well visible from here, is really huge.
View from the ramparts to the old part of the town is also nice, although it would certainly be better from the towers.
You can possibly bypass the castle and admire the walls also from the outside.
