Alhama de Granada is a picturesque town whose name comes from its thermal baths, called al-hammam in Arabic. This unassailable fortress perched above a deep canyon was taken by the Catholic Monarchs in 1482. This was the one of hardest blows for the Muslims in the Kingdom of Granada. The episode inspired the famous poem ¡Ay de mi Alhama! A tour of the Arab quarter is a wonderful experience for the senses.
The Church of La Encarnación .It was built on the grounds of the Great Mosque in times of the Catholic Monarchs in a late Gothic style. Its silhousette stands out in the highest part of the town.
