I could enjoy outside the citadel in 360 * and inside, I loved it. It is a place of my land which I would visit again, I also recommended the tea shop there at the foot of the citadel and the tapas bar which is delicious called san juan ... In case you want to do the same here is the route we did ... http://botasybrujula.blogspot.com.es/2013/07/orgulloso-de-ser-almeriense.html
This is one of the most important monuments of Almeria, our great Cable Inglés. It is well worth spend any afternoon doing nothing and watch the sunset, impressive and people are also usually go fishing there, as is the case with my photography. I recommend it.
Walking on the Oceanfront Promenade (Paseo Maritimo) it is a very nice and peaceful. The weather usually accompanies increasing our well-being with the warm light, the sound of the sea and the beautiful views. At the end you can always take a break and enjoy a good meal at a popular restaurant in the area which is called "Sea Club". I recommend coming here, you will enjoy it as much as we did.
It was the first time I went and experienced a beautiful sunset, they say it is not a city famous for its monuments orits beaches, but there are definitely places that do not go unnoticed and worth to be seen at least once, one of them is the old English cable port of Almeria.
During our evening walks through the modern city of Almeria, we discovered a set of spectacular fountains and light features located on a busy roundabout on the Avenida del Mediterráneo, between No 300 and 310, opposite the Hotel Indalo Trip. At night, there is a display with constant changes of shapes and colors. It is a very pretty sight. It deserves to be seen at night!
Visit the Cortijo del Fraile when you go to Cabo de Gata. Besides the beauty of the place, it was the scene of a crime of passion in the early twentieth century. The "Crime of Nijar" inspired Federico García Lorca to write his play "Blood Wedding". The cottage where it all happened is located in a valley surrounded by mountains. It is currently in ruins and abandoned. Due to the pressure of several intellectuals in Almeria, the cottage has been declared a cultural site.
The Cathedral is in the old area of Almeria. Its shape is more like a castle than a house of worship and it has a Gothic style, dating back to 1524, and its building ended 38 years later, in 1562. In the outer zone there is a robust and defensive design, characterized by the existence of buttresses, turrets and battlements, as the building suffered continuous attacks by North African pirates. It has three naves and three chapels. Well worth a visit and surround the cloister once inside.
These bomb shelters were used in the civil war and are now restored for visitors. Though you can't visit the entire structure, the part you can visit is quite interesting. The entrance is in front of the the legendary Amalia kiosk across from the School of Fine Arts.
The park has activity areas for children and is in a super quiet area, away from the city center but not too far away. One of its most interesting features is the botanical garden where, in addition to seeing plants and trees from different parts Spain, there are also exercise machines. The best time to go is in summer, in the evening from 18:30, when the sun starts to go down and it's not so hot. It is an enjoyable and relaxing place to walk, especially when it isn't too busy.
This is a great place that we visited in September 2010. It has a vibrant and varied atmosphere and offers many things such as a museum, a great tapas bar with a dance floor, live music and shows. I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends, enjoying the unique décor and furnishings, inspired the Caribbean.
La Rambla, otherwise known as Avenida Federico Garica Lorca, is one of the main arteries of Almeria. Built on an old boardwalk, it runs from the harbor to the upper part of the city, passing by the Alcazaba, one of most important monuments in Almeria. Below La Rambla is a public parking lot so you can leave your car there and take a stroll among the bars and gardens. Have fun!
Nijar is one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. Located in Almeria, in the southeast of Spain. It boasts the great Natural Park Cabo de Gata and has a long tradition of crafts, like pottery and rugs. Nijar pottery is the best example of the persistence of the Arabic culture through the centuries. Similarities in processing and decoration leave no doubt of this fact. At present there are some ceramic workshops in the lower part of town. The Watchtower is a hill with a magnificent view over the mountains, orchards and the village of Nijar. In the distance you can see the mountains of Cabo de Gata and the Mediterranean. The Jarapa is a blanket of various sizes made from cotton and woven with strips of fabric scraps obtained from used clothing. Today the rugs are generally used as carpets but in earlier times they were used to protect mattresses from friction of the mattress and even in the olive groves for the olive harvest. The word "rag" is derived from the word "Jarapa".
Let's enjoy watching the Almeria-Real Madrid match from the roof of the new buildings that is opposite the stadium, from where you can take some amazing photographs, not only of the stadium but also the panorama of the wonderful city of Almeria. By the way it was a fantastic game too!

It was opened in 1998, it first exhibition being dedicated to the works of Joan Miro. Today you'll also find books and all kinds of cultural activities here.
