A lot to see

Almeria is an energetic port city with an illustrious past and one of the emerging destinations in Andalusia. It is a hidden gem in the south of Spain with the great coast and natural wonders. Encompassing heavenly beaches, deep cliffs and wild expanses of arid scrub, Almeria still maintains relatively unexplored areas. The province has the great privilege of having a good climate all year round. While Spain and the rest of Europe freezes in the winter months, Almeria boasts extraordinary sunshine. Its warmth and the sea make it a perfect winter destination.

Almeria is full of architecture and historical elements. The Roman, Muslim and Christian cultures were intertwined in this land. It is home to several museums where you can learn about everything from the making of olive oil to the city’s rich archaeological history.

The province enjoys some 3,000 hours of sunshine with over 320 sunny days a year, making it one of the driest cities in all of Europe. It is home to the only desert on the continent, the Tabernas Desert, located about 30 km north of Almeria and is a beautiful and wild expanse of dunes, hills and mountains that rarely sees rain.

In addition, Almeria has played a key role in the development of the various styles of flamenco in Spain. Together, they form part of the cultural heritage of an art form that uses dance, song and Spanish guitar music to convey the depths of the soul. If you want to live an authentic flamenco experience in Almeria, visit Peña el Taranto, La Canastera, Peña El Tintero and the Fernando Padilla Auditorium.

And of course, don’t forget to enjoy the stunning beaches of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, which is only a few kilometers from the city.

Let a certified guide show you Almeria like you could never have imagined.
