It is known as the city of four cultures, as the Muslim, Jewish, Christian and Hindu religions exist here side by side. Though it has the appearance of a huge fortress, it also has important Modernist buildings.Read more...

What to see The temples that represent the four religions. While they are all open to the public, bear in mind that the Tourist Office runs tours every Sunday. We especially recommend the Central Mosque, the church of El Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, the synagogue of Or Zaruah and the Hindu Oratory. The fortified city is the oldest part and is known as “El Pueblo” (The Town). The city is arranged into various defensive bastions. The most important sites include the Alcazaba (Arab Citadel), Plaza de Armas, Plaza de las Peñuelas and the bastion known as La Concepción, home to the Military Museum. The Modernist architecture is mainly located in the port area and the district of El Ensanche. Examples include La Asamblea Palace, the Bank of Spain and the Casino Militar. Active tourism Enjoy a camel ride, explore the 4x4 routes, or take a trip to Mount Gurugú, where there's a colony of Barbary monkeys. You can also go jet skiing or scuba diving. Gastronomy The local cuisine reflects the area's multi-cultural roots. The best places for eating out are the city centre, the seafront and the area known as El Real. The most popular dishes are based on fresh fish and seafood, spices and, of course, tapas. Mint tea is also very popular.
