Church of Our Lady of the Incarnation (Tahal - Almeria)
The temples of Tahal and Alcudia were burned during the uprising of the Moorish, but were later renovated in a project that was entrusted to the Bishop of Guadix.

The original temple included interesting some elements, such as a bell tower that was high enough to have the utility of serving as a refuge and watchtower to give alarm in case of a possible invasion. This church has the curiosity of having a painting on its high altar, an exact replica of the main painting of the Cathedral of Granada.
It has gone through several restorations, the last one being done in 2002, in which works were carried out to reinforce the roof of the structure.

This building does have the same main door, which is a milestone, taking into account everything that the church has gone through. Other elements that have survived the fires suffered by the church and the passage of time are the crown of the Christ of Consuelo, a painting of the Virgin of Carmel, an image of the Holy Family, a parish cross, the bandolier of the Virgin of the Immaculate, and several documents that belong to the Historical Archive.

Castle of Tahal (Tahal - Almeria)
This castle was built on an old Muslim fortress. At the time of the Dukes of Abrantes, the castle was at its best, because its location allowed him to have a great view of the town, in addition to having cisterns, barns, and stables.

This castle has three floors, but also has basements and a terrace.

It is said that its basements are secretly connected with Alcudia, Medala, Benitorafe, and Fuente Higuera.
In 2006 the castle and its surroundings were restored, and at that time the Tourist Office of Tahal decided to take on one of the halls of the castle to install traveling exhibitions, and the Interpretation Centre of Towers and Castles has been installed in two other halls.
