You will start this tour visiting the Alcazaba, located close to the Roman theatre which is part of the city walls. Then, you will walk through Puerta de la Bóveda a typical Moorish door, until you get to Puerta de las Columnas, which was built using Roman marble columns to hold up the Moorish horseshoe arches.
