Best part of Almería lots of steps but each corner provides another surprise. The construction is monumental in size and complexity. The use of water was wonderful more »
Absolute must visit and free to European residents! Stunning views all around the city and port and a great castle to explore. Still undergoing archeological review and re-construction but definitely worth the steps up to the fort. Easy enough to find and walkable from around the city. Want to visit again in the evening for sunset!
Great ruin to walk around, make sure you grab the appropriate language leaflet before you make a start into the castle proper. The gardens are lovely and to be enjoyed with a slow stroll and the work happening in the second section should reveal some excellent views into original buildings. Make sure you take suncream and water, it gets hot!
