The best things to do in Almería

One of the main things to see in Almería is the Alcazaba, an old Moorish fortress that consists of three areas: the military camp, Almotacín Palace -- the residence of rulers, guards, and servants -- and a Christian castle built by order of the kings. Without doubt, of all the attractions in Almeria, we can see the footprint of history clearly here.

To continue with stuff to do in Almeria, visit the Arab cisterns of Jairán, built during the Muslim period of the 11th century for the city's water supply. They are divided into three areas with vaulted bricks and for decades have been the headquarters of the Tarano Peña Flamenca.

Other places to visit in Almeria are the Caliphate walls of Jairán and Cerro San Cristobal. Along the walls of the Alcazaba Jairán, which descend into the ravine of La Hoya before rising to the Cerro de San Cristobal, are the remains of the first Christian fortification built during the siege of 1147. This route offers a mountain of things to do in Almería to all visitors, though it's important to ntoe that many visitors recommend hiring a guide. For religious Almeria attractions, you can visit the Cathedral of the Incarnation, St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, the Basilica of Santo Domingo, and the Shrine of Our Lady the Sea.
