The Cathedral of the Incarnation was built both for worship and for the defence of attacks on the city by Berber pirates.
It is a unique example of its kind since it is the only Cathedral with a fortress, erected in Spain in the 16th century. The building presents a transition of architecture between late Gothic and Renaissance, as well as later baroque and neoclassical features.
The Almanzora river crosses a valley full of life. There are fields full of flowering almond trees, orange groves, orchards and small towns whose inhabitants have been using the natural resources of the area for centuries: wine production, mining, meat industry and agriculture.
