Heading to Almeria

On my way to Almeria. This city was founded in 955 by the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Rahman III and was the main port city of al-Andalus. It has a very distinguished history, especially renowned as the major center of Sufism in al-Andalus, and was one of the last cities to fall to the Christian conquista. Its ancient Muslim fortress (the alcazaba) is the best-preserved in Spain.
