This part of the complex is the very oldest extant. It is actually the fortress and while not as beautifully decorated as the places described, it was solid and utilitarian to its purposes.
The watch tower is part of the Alcazaba since it was vital to observing the surrounding territory to determine if any incursions were on the way. The view from the tower is complete and surveys 360 degrees. Today it is the perfect place for tourists to see the entire city of Granada and the mountains and terrain around it.
