Almería The Essential
Interesting
Almería appears as a swathe of white between the sea and an arid hillside crowned by the alcazaba, a Moorish fortress that testifies to the importance of "Al-Meriya" (Mirror of the Sea in Arabic) in the 11C, when it was the centre of a taifa kingdom. The development of advanced agricultural technology has transformed Almería into a leading agricultural centre. In addition, tourism, boosted by the city's delightful climate, has made a significant contribution to the development of the region.
