Tourism in Almería

The Cathedral

Catedral Almería

The Cathedral of the Incarnation is a unique example of its kind, as it is a cathedral-fortress from the 17th century. The constant threat of Algerian and Berber pirates led to the construction of the Cathedral as a fortress to defend against emergencies. Its exterior apse in the form of a tower, its four towers, and battlements are closely related to this. Inside, don’t miss the Diocesan Museum with works by Ribera, Murillo, and Alonso Cano.

The Alcazaba

Alcazaba Almería

The Alcazaba is the main monument of Almería and the largest Muslim fortress of its kind in Spain. The most impressive aspect is undoubtedly the views you have from here over the entire city, including the port and the neighborhood of La Chanca.

The Central Market

Mercado Central

The Central Market was the first food market in the province and the largest in the city for a long time. Located in the geographical center of Almería, on Rambla Obispo Orberá, right next to Puerta de Purchena, it is an emblematic and peculiar building that is part of the city’s history and daily life of its people. This is the main characteristic that makes it essential.

The Promenade

Paseo Marítimo Almería

The Almería Seafront Promenade is located on the same street that bears its name, Avenida del Marítimo, right by the beach. Taking a stroll along it is a very pleasant and peaceful experience. The weather often adds to our well-being with warm light, the sound of the sea, and beautiful views.

Cabo de Gata Natural Park

Dreamy beaches like Playa de los Genoveses, Mónsul, and Playazo await to be enjoyed for tourism in Almería.

Tabernas Desert Natural Park

Desierto Tabernas

Located 30 kilometers from Almería is the only true desert in Europe, which was declared a natural park in 1989. The beauty and uniqueness of this landscape have attracted the film industry for several decades, using these natural settings to shoot scenes for movies, preserving authentic “Wild West Towns”.
