Almeria, the capital city, was first founded by the Phoenicians and later developed by the Romans. It?s most prominent feature is the imposing Moorish fort that dominates the city. There are many fascinating corners of the city to discover along with numerous gastronomic and cultural attractions.
Almeria has undergone extensive renovation and development over the past few years. Nowadays, it has excellent communications with the rest of Andalucia and has very easy access to the airport.
