Pretty much the furthest north example of the Moorish kingdoms in Spain, this palace is a fine example of Spanish/Islam art and architecture. It would be perfect if the entire palace had been restored, but a good portion of it is in use by the...More

Fascinating Moorish fort. I took the English version of the audio guide which was moderately helpful. Thought the water garden and the Moorish arches and designs were great. Cool and refreshing. Interesting to note how Arabic styles were integrated into later Christian Spain. Found my...More

An interesting visit within walking distance of the town Centre. Very little information available in English.

From outside interesting. From inside very average - not worth to enter and not worth to pay entrance fee. Guides only in Spanish. If you are enthusiastic and think you have to visit this attraction, go on Sunday morning, opened to 14 and is free.

when the Moors were expelled the Aragonese had more sense than to destroy all their magnificent buildings and instead enjoyed them: this colossal castle is most special for the beautiful Moorish decoration in the interior

We didn’t have much time as we were passing through but we’re advised to visit this site. It’s a very cheap way to spend a couple of hours with a family especially as it sits in beautiful parkland in the city centre. There are no...More

If one is unable to go to Alhambra, the palacio de la aljaferia gives an insight into the moorish history of Spain. While the aljaferia pales in comparison to the Alhambra, it nevertheless is worthy of a visit to have a more in depth understanding...More

We are fortunate to have visited many places, not just in Spain, which have been preserved and not renovated to how they used to be. It felt more like a modern replica of the original . We missed out on audio guide at the beginning...More

I went by public transport, which was easy. From memory, there was plenty of street parking nearby, but it was a Sunday. It is away from the CBD, so it should be OK
