Muralla de Jairan

Built in the 11th century by Jairan (or Jayran), the first ruler of the Almeria taifa (1012-1028), the wall descends the valley on the north side of the Alcazaba and climbs the Cerro de San Cristobal on the far side.

The walls have three square towers dating from the Islamic era, plus four circular ones from the Christian period.
