Almeria - A Short Guide

 

Almeria is the capital city of the sandy region of Almeria. It overlooks the cerulean tones of the Mediterranean sea and is home to a beautiful range of mountains, an old city with charming alleyways leading you down narrow streets filled with trinket stores, churches, tapas bars and chirpy restaurants and a wondrous mix of architecture that includes moor . Almeria was once better known for its agricultural produce than its tourism, but as the appeal of the area grows, there are now several resorts in the east and south coasts such as Almerimar and Aguadulce. It’s one of the driest regions in the whole of Europe and also home to one of the only semi-deserts in Europe. As such, the location has been a favourite for European film makers over the years. Some of the movies that have been filmed in the area include ‘A fistful of Dollars’ and ‘Lawrence of Arabia’. If you’re a film buff then you should head out on a Western movie locations tour from Tabernas village. You’ll tour the shoot locations on a 4x4 and will be guided by bi-lingual tour operators. Throughout the city you’ll find beautiful contrasting architecture such as the Moorish Alcazaba fortress which sits above the city on the peak of the mountains casting a protective shadow on the maze of alleyways below. It’s a perfect place to spend a day out, as as well as the castle and the ruins, there are beautiful gardens and the surrounding mountain ranges that are fun to explore on foot or by car. In the city itself you’ll find that many of the city’s bars and restaurants centre around La Rambla which is a long avenue that runs through the centre of the city. To get around the major attractions in the city we recommend renting a car as they are spread all over the city. Some of the recommended sites include the Cervantes Theatre, the Church of Santiago, the Diocesan Museum and the Cathedral of Almeria which dates back to 1524 and is in the Gothic and Renaissance styles. The cathedral has something of a fortress look about it - which was intentional to help guard against marauding pirates from North Africa.


If you’re heading to Almeria to sample the divine beaches in the region then you’ll be glad to know that beaches in the area are often much emptier than other areas of Spain. You can wonder the coastline taking in dunes, unspoilt white sand beaches, sheltered coves and commanding cliffs. Some of the best beaches in the region can be found in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar, with vast stretches of volcanic cliffs, coral reefs and panoramic vistas over azure waters - it is an unspoiled tropical mecca. Elsewhere you’ll find beaches such as the stunning Playa de Los Muertos which can be found in the Levante region near the town of Carboneras. The name Beach of the Dead may be a little off putting, but the name simply comes from historic times, when the bodies of pirates and traders would wash up there with the current. These days, the beach is almost barren, there are no services to speak of but the natural beauty of the area is simply divine. The beach itself is rocky and the water is crystal clear and surrounded by lush green hills. If you’d prefer something a little more exciting, then you should head to the western coastline, otherwise known as Poniente. There you’ll find built up beaches with modern equipment and nice little bars and restaurants to help you refuel. Almeria is one of the most unspoiled areas of Spain, it’s perfectly ripe for exploration and we can help you.
