DISCOVER ALMERIA
Set on the coast, surrounded by mountains, this is a bright city whose oldest neighbourhoods abound in colour.
Its location fills this province with contrasts: there is desert in one part and a wealth of plantations in another.
With its port that looks out to the Mediterranean, Almería is an open, hospitable city, and has been host to the many different cultures that left their mark here.
The city offers a wide range of options, from museums, monuments, walks through streets that bring its history to mind… through to beautiful countryside waiting to be discovered.
 

Winter in Almeria - a great winter destination
If you want to get away from the bone chilling cold of winter then look no further. One of the best destinations to head towards is Almeria in the southeast corner of Spain where the climate even in winter does not fall below an average of 13 degrees Celsius. Rest and unwind in one of the most charming and unspoiled regions in southern Spain.

The generally warm and dry climate with low rainfall in this region ensures that your trip will enjoy mild weather and don't forget that the number of hours of sun enjoyed per year is over 3,000! No wonder Almeria is the home of Europe's largest solar energy plant. So don't hesitate, Almeria is the only destination in the whole of Europe that will ensure that you don't end up with those "winter blues"! Now you have a choice of seeking solace in balmy weather instead of facing the gloom of winter.

You can reach Almeria by traveling to the nearby international airports in Murcia, Granada and Malaga. Due to its location near the coast, protected by the natural barrier of Sierra de Gador, this province consists of semi arid desert like landscape which is conducive to agricultural produce. Moreover you can join the fiestas that are celebrated along the coastline as well as browse the popular handicrafts in pottery, ceramics, esparto, rugs and marble whilst enjoying gastronomic delights like paprika, gurullos and seafood, a legacy from Almeria's rich past. While you are there you can visit the Moorish citadel, Alcazaba and the Gothic cathedral, a 300 year old hospital, spectacular beaches and many tapas bars.

 
 

 

 
28th December  
  Vélez-Rubio
  Almería
 950410000
 If you do not want to go to jail don't go to the square of the Town Hall of Velez-Rubio. A local person takes over from the Mayor for the day and names his councillors who send everyone who appears in the square to jail. And the new mayor invites all the "prisoners" to an apperitive, behind bars however!
