Location

Almería is located in the South of Spain. It enjoys good weather all the year round. The landscape is varied: you can find coastline, mountains and desert areas. The region has a rich cultural heritage as a result of its ancient history, which can be seen in many old buildings, some of them now in ruins. The name of Almería comes from the Arab Al-miraya, which means “the mirror of the sea”. Almería developed its Spanish roots when the Catholics Monarchs, Fernando and Isabel, conquered the city in 1489 and it became part of the kingdom of Castile. In 1522, Almería was devastated by an earthquake and rebuilding and recovery didn't really get underway until the 19th century thanks to the industry of mining and the exportation of grape. During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), the city was shelled by the German Navy, and fell to Franco in 1939. It has since rebuilt its economy around vegetable production, with 100,000 acres of greenhouses, supplying much of Europe. Insert embedded Map with city as the location.
