Planning a holiday is no easy task, that’s why we would like to help you make the choice by suggesting the ideal destination. Why not come and visit Spain and choose from a wide range of different options.
Almeria is one of the places you simply must visit on your journey to our country. Situated on the easternmost tip of mainland Spain it is known as the place where the sun spends the winter.
Your stay in Almería will be truly unforgettable thanks to the host of resources at your disposal in and around the city.
The monuments and fortifications built before and after the foundation of the city in the year 955 by the Arabs have become emblems of the city in their own right; the “Alcazaba”, the Great Mosque or the Arabic water cisterns to name but a few.
The capture of the city by the Catholic Monarchs marked the start of its evangelization with new buildings and a different style of architecture, such as the Fortified Cathedral, churches and convents, beginning to take their place on the municipal map.
The cultural heritage of the city is also on show in the city’s museums, visitors’ and exhibition centres, Civil War bomb shelters, the railway station, the mineral loader and, the recently renovated central market.
However, a trip to Almeria includes much more, the municipality has incredible beaches, green spaces, and a natural park which, together with its cuisine, traditions and culture will make your trip to the city an unforgettable experience.
