Details

Dalias is 42km north west of Almeria city, east from Adra & north off the coast road to Berja. It has nearly 4000 inhabitants (Dalienos) It is situated 411mt above sea level and the municipality covers an area of 147sq km.

Nestling in a sea of plastic green houses, Dalias is quite a large town with several public ‘fuentes’, some of which have been renovated or improved. It is not unusual to see queues of people at these Fuentes waiting to fill their variety of plastic bottles. The fountains usually have 2 or 3 stone or marble bowls with constant running water, with a large stone trough in front

Dalias has an abundance of small shops, cafes and bars, together with the daily Mercado. A pleasant square by the church and town hall provides some necessary shade with the trees pruned into canopies

There are marble quarries and lead mines nearby, although currently the main industry is agriculture. A vast variety of fruit (mainly table grapes), flowers & vegetables are grown in the local plastic green houses, which spread across 10,000 hectares, In all more than 250 million kilos of crops are produced each year, most of which are exported to other European countries

Dalias was founded in Roman times and flourished for a short period. During the Moorish occupation, many Dalienos were killed in an assortment of skirmishes, but because the local land was so fertile, farmers soon returned to work the terraces

In 19th century Dalias was given ‘city’ status because of its importance/development of the local mines to the economy.

Dalias celebrates 7 festivals throughout the year. Santones in January, Carnival, with fancy dress in February, Romeria, the last Sunday in May , San Juan o­n the shortest night of the year in June, Christo de la Luz o­n the third Sunday in September and San Miguel o­n the Sunday nearest to 29th September

The National Tourist board have declared that the fiesta Christo de la Luz is of national interest. o­n the last night of the fiesta, the figure of Christ is taken from the main Church through the streets where, firecrackers, rockets and bangers are let off in a cacophony of sound and light
