    8 Quirky Facts

    1. A Plan For All Seasons
      Almeria isn’t just a great beach destination, there’s so much to do all year around – watersports, caving, diving are all available close to the city. There are waterfalls to explore, horse-riding throughout the year and in the winter months you can go skiing in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains.
    2. Desert-ed
      30km northwest of Almeria is Desierto Tabernas Europe’s only desert. Snakes, cacti, scorpions, black widow spiders, eagles, it’s home to some fascinating flora and fauna, what it doesn’t have is a lot of rain or cafes, so go prepared.
    3. Weather or Not
      The nearby desert could be a contributing factor to Almeria being one of the driest cities in Europe with an average rainfall of just 200mm (approx. 7.5 inches if you’re old school). Average temperatures rarely dip below 19°C and have never been recorded below 0°C. So you probably won’t need those winter woollies.
    4. Gone All Hollywood
      During the 1960s and 70s, the rugged landscape of the Tabernas desert became a famous movie location, in particular for ‘spaghetti westerns’. Sergio Leone shot cowboy flicks starring Clint Eastwood here such as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, and A Fistful of Dollars. It doubled up as Africa for Laurance of Arabia, and Cleopatra. Most recently it was used in the HBO smash hit Game of Thrones. Movie buffs can visit locations, many of which are open to visitors (when not shooting) as well as Wild West cowboy shows (with actual shooting!).
    5. Imagine
      In 1966 John Lennon also filmed in the area. Lennon was playing the part of Private Gripweed in Richard Lester’s black comedy How I Won The War. During his time he stayed in a 19th-century mansion with his first wife Cynthia Lennon. Cynthia claimed the house was haunted and Ringo Starr who later visited said in his autobiography, “You expect all kinds of heroes with swords to come swinging round the corner on a chandelier! What a great place for parties. I was convinced beyond all doubt the villa housed many beautiful spirits.”. While staying Lennon wrote the immortal hit, Strawberry Fields Forever. A statue to the rock icon stands (or rather sits) in the city centre.
    6. Not Very Civil
      During Spain’s bloody civil war, 1936-39, Almeria was targeted by repeated bombing. To help keep its citizens protected the city built around 4.5km of tunnels known as Refugios de la Guerra Civil. Over 1km of the tunnels are now available to visit in guided tours which only conducted in Spanish.
    7. Park Life
      Deserts to the north and 40km along the coast to the east is the fabulous Cabo de Gata-Nijar National Park which is the largest nature reserve on the Mediterranean coast. It’s wild and untamed in places, home to pirate fortresses and Moorish castles, thousands of different plant species and fascinating wildlife. It’s ideal for horse-riding and jeep safaris.
    8. Oldie But Goodie
      In the 1880s, Henri and Louis Siret were mining engineers working in the region, who also had a passion for archaeology. They found a Copper Age city site at Los Millares, which is now one of the country’s most important archaeological sites dating back to 2700BC. The city covered 47 acres with defensive walls and towers, a foundry, homes, along with a cemetery containing over 100 tombs. Almeria is no spring chicken either, it was home to the Romans who called it Portus Magnus and to the Moors who effectively gave the town its modern name Al-Marīyah, meaning “Mirror of the Sea”.
