This paper deals with some featuring aspects of the almohad military construction (12 th and 13 th centuries), which define a clear and propagandistic image of its powerful developer. The finishing of concrete walls, accesses to fortifications and polygonal towers and albarranas (external towers) are here analysed. This paper is the result of studying several examples, which allow us to trace the existence of itinerant builders’ teams working for the almohad authorities.
