Alhama de Granada overhangs a spectacular gorge and in fact there ae dwellings built into the stone as well as on top. It has its origins in prehistoric times and has been continuously inhabited since then. It has churches, an aqueduct, an Inquisition house, dungeons, a Roman bridge, remains of a Muslim water tower, derelict flour mills, fountains, Roman baths....and good cafes, shops and restaurants!
