I'm not to sure what to say about this apart from yes it is where it says it is. We walked down and literally straight past..it's pretty and a point of interest but not much more that that.

This is a nice place to visit, but unfortunately it was closed when we arrived so we couldn't get inside, however open or closed it was still well worth visiting the area, it is nice to walk around, have a look at the cannons, architecture and gardens, there is also a small open air type auditorium and lighthouse building.

This is a free to enter museum inside an interesting fort protecting the harbour. It provides a good account of the local history (even the greenhouses!!) and has numerous displays. Well worth a visit and some of the exhibits are aimed at the children.

This is a wonderful place to spend an hour or so wandering about, browsing the historical information about the area and getting some lovely photos. Then afterwards dine at what must be the best restaurant in Almeria just a few minutes away in the port - easy to miss unless you keep your eye out - Alejandros, the only Michelin... More

The castle is a lovely place to visit, for free, but it's all a bit empty. You have to keep a very canny eye to find out what is on. They do have painting and photo exhibitions, each of which I have found interesting but, as with most things around here, you have to know what's happening to know what's... More

A gentle stroll from El Reyal Club Nautic round the harbour to the Torre Santa Ana, a well restored fortress originally built in C16 to protect the coast from raiders and restored in the 1990's. The Tower is a fine example of a defensive structure of it's period. Unfortunately the Museum was changing exhibitions as we visited so was not... More
