Almeria, Spain’s easternmost Andalusian capital, dominates a coastline dotted with almost virgin beaches and an interior marked by peculiar semi-deserted ecosystems.

Formerly one of the most important ports in the Caliphate of Cordoba, Almería reveals its Alcazaba (citadel) and its cathedral, on the shores of the Mediterranean. Narrow streets with whitewashed façades are elements of its picturesque historic quarter.

Climate
Almería has hot summers and cool to mild winters; it has one of the sunniest, warmest and driest climates in Europe.
