Almería is a city in southeast Spain. Things I had planned to see were The Alcazaba which is an imposing Moorish fortress overlooking the city. The fortified, 16th-century Almería Cathedral has a Gothic ribbed ceiling. The Museum of Almería displays archaeological finds from across the region. Underground lies a network of tunnels, the Civil War Shelters of Almería. The English Cable is a huge iron pier and symbol of the city’s former mining industry. We arrived late and just went to bed. And first we to find the Cathedral.
Next morning, we walked up to see the statute of St Cristobel. I struggled with this, but we did get to the top. While husband played with drone. I just rested and waited for him to finish.
I knew that the fortress was only open until 3pm. So we walked toward this. We came across the Town Hall, and then found the Fortress. I also again struggled walking to the top, as there was no lifts. And it had breath taking views of Almeria. I never realised how big it actually was.
When we walked back down, we came across a queue of people were getting their chicken and chips for lunch. We queued up and ordered half a chicken and chips and found a seat and ate it. I wanted to see the Civil War Shelters but my husband told me that I would not be able to manage this. He was probably right. We then walked down to the coast and got our drone out and sent it over the English Cable. Which is a huge iron pier and symbol of the city’s former mining industry.
Later that day, we came across this gorgeous italian bakery called La Dulce Alianza and we ordered a lemon tart and a strawberry cheesecake with a hot chocolate and latte. And how gorgeous do these look ? And they tasted amazing too !
I would recommend Almeria to anyone. I enjoyed our visit there. We stayed in the old town, as it was close to the things I wanted to see. Roads are very small, and if you drive, parking will be an issue. Onwards to Murcia next !
