Almeria is at its busiest throughout the summer period - from spring until autumn - but never gets too busy at any time of year. Temperatures reach the high 20s to low 30s on most days throughout the summer making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months over the winter period but the temperatures do drop at this time of year and the whole city isn’t really as attractive as it is during the hot summer months.
The biggest attraction in the city of Almeria is its spectacular Alcazaba de Almeria. This massive Arabic hilltop fortress dominates the city and dates back centuries. Although it is run down in some areas, restoration has taken place in other areas including the gardens and fountains. Another great thing to do when visiting Almeria is to take a trip to one of the incredible beaches of the area. The two best are probably Las Salinas and La Almadrava de Monteleva. Both of these provide great days out. Other honourable mentions in the city include the Film Studios where sets from Indiana Jones and Game of Thrones can be found. The Natural Park of Cabo de Gata Nijar is also worth visiting.
Almeria offers a variety of accommodation options to suit anyone’s budget and preferences. Standard hotels and hostels are dotted around the city centre whereas the larger hotels, villas and apartments are usually located a little bit outside of the main city. In terms of dining out, there are numerous tapas bars all over Almeria which specialise in a selection of meats, fish and seafood as well as some typical tortillas and potato dishes.
