Almeria Sightseeing


One of Spain's most charismatic pop stars, David Bisbal, is playing at the football stadium in Huercal Overa, Almeria on October 14. He will be showcasing his latest album ‘Hijos del Mar'. Tickets, for what is the final concert of his tour, are available at www.ticketea.com.

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.

Day Trips

The hamlet of La Isleta del Moro in the coastal Cabo de Gata natural park has a population of less than 100 people, yet it stands at one of the most privileged spots on Spain's Mediterranean. Situated on a small promontory, jutting out into the sea, eating a meal in this wonderful spot is a good way to end the day after a walk to see the surrounding coves.

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.
