Details

Almeria is a lively and modern city that co-exists with the old historical town. There are a good selection of art galleries, museums and shops. La Rambla, in the centre of the city, is well worth taking a stroll along, it is a long avenue populated with squares, street cafes and children’s play areas. For the more active there is a popular sports marina or for those wanting something a little different why not take a trip to North Africa from the bustling ferry terminal.

The city has been influenced by many civilizations having been home to the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Christians during it’s history. Today there are a large number of migrant workers from Morocco and Tunisia giving an African influence to the city.

Evidence of the rich history of Almeria can be found through out the city. There are many historical buildings and monuments well worth a visit in Almeria such as:

  • Perched o­n a hilltop overlooking the town is the Alcazaba de Almeria, an imposing Arab fortress o­nce capable of holding an army of more than 20,000 men. Built in the 10th Century by Abd-erRahman 111 the fort dominates the city and affords fabulous views of the area. It is considered to be o­ne of the greatest forts in Andalusia.
  • The Cathedral of Almeria is in the old part of the city. It is heavily fortified having been built in the 16th century when area was being raided by pirate forces from Turkey and North Africa. It’s corner towers o­nce held cannons to protect the port of the city. The architecture has both gothic and renaissance influences. Inside is a wealth of priceless artwork and the tomb of the founder of the cathedral the Franciscan Bishop Diego Fernandez de Villalan.
  • Parish Church of Santiago Apóstol in the Calle de las Tiendas is listed as a national monument. Built in 1559 it’s architecture is a synthesis of gothic, renaissance and mudejar styles.
