THE TOWN: Lonely Planet writes about this little town of Andalusia: “Almería has come a long way. What was a couple of decades ago basically a tough port city, with its glory days buried firmly in the past, is today the increasingly polished, energetic and visitor-friendly capital of Andalucía’s second-wealthiest province. Its cultural attractions are ever-growing and the tapas-bar scene in its spruced-up old centre rivals the best.”
