Almería is a province of Andalucia in the south-east of Spain. It´s a big area of about 8.700 Sq
Km. of which large areas are arid, empty and mountainous. It has Europe´s only dessert, where many famous spagetti-western
films have been produced.
Still, it has forests of pinetrees in the many mountain areas such as the Sierra María, or snow up in the Sierra Nevada.
Almería has some great beaches on the east coast in the volcanic nature reserve Cabo de Gata, where the mediterranean
sea has cristal clear water.
Along the coast there are many places where millions of people enjoy their hard earned holiday. All-year-round-tourism
has played a role since the early seventies and is still a big employer. Some tourists prefer the beach while others rather
go out and about in the dessert of Tabernas
by four wheel drive or visit the caves of Sorbas, or play on one of the many golf-courses.
All mayor travel agencies are here bringing us people from the Uk and Ireland, Belgium and Germany, and ofcourse...Spain.
