Almeria is in far eastern Andalucia, located on a beautiful bay and at the foot of a mountain range. It is dominated by the magnificent Alcazaba, an Arab fortress with three huge walled enclosures home to a host of historical remains and priceless art work. The city is in the centre of the Andulusian coastline and boasts tranquil and relatively solitary beaches of great beauty.

Attractions include the Almeria Museum containing numerous objects discovered by the Belgian mining Engineer, Louis Siret and the huge gothic and renaissance cathedral in the heart of the old city dating back to 1524.

Local culinary specialities include Gurullos (stew with pasta), Trigo (stew with grains of wheat, pork, beans and herbs), Gachas (hot and spicy clam stew) and Escabeche e Sardines (fresh sardines in hot sauce). Head to Puerta de Purchena end of Paseo de Almeria for a good selection of bars and restaurants.
