Cistern of the Castle of Arjona.


Arjona was the birthplace of Alhamar, king of Granada, founder of the Nasrid dynasty and promoter of the building of the Alhambra. The town acquired special importance within Al-Andalus because of him. Only a few remains of that splendid period are preserved, among which the cistern of the former castle of Arjona stands out. It has been recently restored and turned into a museum.
