Planning trip to Almeria

by doc5739

Two friends of mine and I are planning on going to
Almeria and the area around it from Madrid in the beginning of April. We know that we can take a train from Madrid to Almeria, but after that we're not really sure how to do this. We're basically just looking to find some nice beaches and relax a little bit. Any info would be helpful. cheap places to stay, nice beaches. Most importantly, how does the transportation work, and lastly, our next stop is Barcelona. How can we get from the Almeria coast to Barcelona. Thanks a bunch

About 20 kms east of Almeria is the natural park of Cabo de Gata, it has spectacular beaches and some incredible scenery. It is also Europes driest area and just inland from the coast is desert, where many Spaghetti westerns were made in the 60´s.

You could look for accommadation in the small town of San Jose, it is served by buses from Almeria city.

Almeria beaches are some of the nicest i had been in ages.

Cabo de gata would be the perfect spot for you.

The problem is the transport.

there are flights from Barcelona to Almeria but are expensive www.iberia.es

Also there is a train from Barcelona to Almeria called Garcia Lorca but it is 13 hours! but only 50 euros per way.

there are two buses from Almeria to barcelona, one goes to the bus station and the other to the airport for around 52 euros

checl on www.movelia.es or www.alsa.com

good luck, this area is great.

Hi, i agree with the other 2 about cabo de gata & if relaxing is all you want to do go there. There is however nothing much to do in that area so for a little more life i would suggest roqetas de mar. It has lovely beaches but also offers shops, bars & restaurants without being too touristy like benidorm or torremolinos for example. You will love the area. Darren...

Yes, both times I had gone to Cabo de Gata, I had stayed at the area Darren sugested, Once in Aguadulce, close to the beach and the Port where most of the pubs are, and at Almerimar close to the port as well, Not as lively as the previous but very nice.

From here you can do day excursions to Cabo de Gata.

But it would depend on howmany days you want to be at the park. If it is only two, you better stay at San Jose, just in the middle of the park.

Next time I go I will stay again at Almerimar, close to El Ejido. Lovely place

So, say I take the train from Barcelona to Almeria, because this is what it seems like we'll be doing. Does this train leave from the central station in Barcelona, and once I get to Almeria how do I go about getting to these locations i.e. San Jose and Roquetas de mars. thanks a bunch. This has all been really helpful

Travel Tips for Almería

If you are interested in...

If you are interested in astronomy, you would want to visit the observator on the Calar Alto. Please don't go there during the night (see my nightlife entry). I've seen many people around the telescoped during the day, maybe because the sight to the surrounding mountains is kind of cool. Don't expect an astronomer or staff member to show you around in the telescope buildings. During the day, the astronomers try to sleep and the staff keeps the telescopes in good shape.

Plaza e Iglesia de San Pedro

by Miguel_Marques

This is a favourite spot in the old quarter, specially during the Cruces de Mayo celebrations, when open air stands with music, food and drinks are open all over the place. The church was built in 1800 over the ruines of the San Francisco monastery from 16th century and its style is neoclassic.

Historic City of Almeria

by Beach_dog

Almeria is a fairly modern city and port in the east of Andalucia. The city is dominated by the Alcazaba, built in the 11th century when Almeria was an independent kingdom, and one of the most commercially active and weathiest districts in Spain. The citadel once housed a palace, immence gardens and some 20,000 people. Once it was reputed to rival Granada in grandeur, but time has taken its toll on the Alcazada, the last of the stuccowork was supposedly sold off by locals in the 18th. century. From the Alcazaba's hilltop location, good views of the coast are visible.

Another point of interest is the cities fortified cathedral, which was built in the 16th century when this coast was plagued by Turkish and Barbary pirates. Its corner towers once housed cannons for the defence of the populace that ran here for security during the raids.

Twenty kilometers north of Almeria, you will find Los Millares, a 4000 year old settlement, protected by strong walls.
