Cheap flights to Almeria

One of Spain’s best kept secrets, Almería gives you a rich and varied blend of the sights, sea, sun and sand you’ve come to expect from Spain. 

One of several jewels in Andalucia’s crown, Almería city itself dates back to the 10th century, when it was a bastion of Moorish rule and an important harbour, a hub for the silk trade, and the scene of countless sieges and conflicts. Today you can take this in at your leisure, explore the medieval town with its staggering cathedrals, fortifications and museums, then stop into one of the city’s many bars for a cool beer and a breather. You’ll also find the best of Spanish cuisine here, with everything from mouth-watering tapas to freshly caught seafood and delicious meaty specialities. If there’s one thing to be said for Almería tourism, it’s definitely tasty. 



The Pulpop festival is talking place in the neighbouring port town of Roquetas de Mar from July 7-8. British band The Spitfires form part of the line-up. Entry is free at the Plaza de Toros on Avenida de la Aduana.

The Easter processions in Almería are some of the most spectacular in Spain, showing the pride and passion of the people. Keep an eye open for the floats which are carried on the shoulders of the Easter brotherhoods through the streets. For a full timetable of the processions visit one of the city's tourist offices.

Key Areas

The cathedral square is a good place to start a stroll around the historic quarter of Almería. The narrow atmospheric streets are full of bars and restaurants, leading down to the port and seafront.

The old town, based around the historic cathedral, is the heart of Almería - both during the day and at night. A stroll using a map from the tourist office will throw up some wonderful sights, or stay close to the cathedral to drink in the cafes which look out over the strapping sanctuary. Once you have got your bearings, this is great spot to return to at night to visit some of the lively tapas bars where a free morcel of food is served with each drink.

Day Trips

In the heat of July, a day at the beach is always a good plan. And some of the best beaches in Spain lie to the north of the city in the Cabo de Gata natural park. The town of San José, with its wonderful seafood restaurants, is a good starting point. Nearby are unspoilt volcanic sands and coves where building has been banned under environmental protection laws.

Roquetas de Mar, a short distance to the west of Almería, is an attractive port town. A stroll around the harbour, then lunch in one of the nearby seafood restaurants is a pleasant way to spend an couple of hours. There are also good beaches cloes to the town centre
