Almeria is a city on the southeast coast of Spain, located in the Andalusia region that borders the Mediterranean Sea. The ferry routes departing the port are the gateway to Africa, with crossings to Morocco and Algeria towards the north of the continent.
Andalusia is one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations, though until recently, Almeria had somehow managed to stay off the radar for most holidaymakers. The lack of notability was one of the factors in Almeria’s charm; browsing boutique stores on quaint streets is all the more enjoyable when there aren’t swarms of people hijacking your every step. The peace and freedom may have been beneficial for the lucky few who visited this pretty port city, however, Almeria’s economy was less agreeable, hence the tourist focussed revamp.
A plethora of bars, restaurants and hotels has given Almeria more of a quintessential holiday resort outlook, though the identity of the town hasn’t faded in the modernisation; the Alcazaba fortress remains the standout landmark, its aesthetics spectacular enough to warrant a whole afternoon dedicated to admiring its imperious design. For an adventure into natural beauty, Nijar Natural Park is a wealth of breathtaking scenery looking out over incredible views – the perfect place for enviable photos.
The city centre and complexes are fairly compact, so much of it can be covered by foot, alternatively there are taxis for quick and easy transport.
