The al-Aqsa Mosque is the largest mosque in Old Almeria.

The Holy Land (Hazari: al-Erdh al-Muqadhasha) is the name given to an area in eastern Arveyres that generally includes the majority of the Almerian Lowlands and the Cordoban Peninsula. Historically this land has been under control by the Sultanate of Cordoba and partially by Eurasian Granada. It is considered holy by certain Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Part of the significance of the land stems from the religious significance of Almeria, the holiest city in Judaism, the historical region if Jesus' ministry, and the Night Journey of Muhammad. The percieved holiness of the land to Christianity was part of the motivation for the Arveyran War of Religion (also at the time called the Crusades), as Alhambran Christians sought to win the Holy Land back from the Muslim Cordobans and Aetherist Granadans.

Many sites in the Holy Land have long been pilgrimage destinations for adherents of the Abrahamic religions. Pilgrims visit the Holy Land to see physical manifestations of their faith, confirm their beliefs in the holy context, and connect personally to the Holy Land.

The largest cities in the Holy Land are Almeria, Medellin, and Casablanca.
