Almeria Guide

The city of Almeria is located in the Andalusia region of Spain. The city lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south east of Spain and is also the capital of the Almeria province. The city is popular with tourists and there are many things to see and do. The Alcazaba is a medieval fortress that was originally built in the 10th century, although it was subsequently destroyed by an earthquake in the 16th century. The fortress has large gardens, a well preserved keep and a triple line of walls. The city also has a Cathedral which resembles a fortress due to its towers, merlons and protected paths which were created to protect it from Mediterranean pirates. The cathedral was converted from a mosque to a Christian church before also being destroyed by an earthquake in 1522. The cathedral was subsequently rebuilt in the Renaissance style whilst retaining some of its defensive features.

The city's port provides passengers with ferry connections to Melilla, Algeria and Morocco. Mediterranean cruises also depart from the port. The port also has a marina which is popular with pleasure boats. The port is currently undergoing a period of expansion with new docks intended to increase the port's freight traffic.
