NASRID WALLS in ALBAYZIN

Aucun commentaire
If you are brave enough to go to the top of the Albayzin, spare one hour to behold the sight of the Nasrid walls.


Unlike the Zirids walls which surround the original Alcazaba Qadima of the XIth century, these walls were built much later, in the XIVth century, to cover the suburbs which had grown around the old walls.


You can notice that the wall start on the top of the Cerro de San Miguel, cross the Carretera de Murcia and go was far as the church of San Cristobal.

There is even a gate, called now Puerta de San Lorenzo, which was rediscovered in 1983(!). The walls follow the shape of the hill of San Cristobal, before to eventually join the Puerta Elvira down the Albayzin.
