Almeria (1 hour en 15 minutes)
Almería is a 5-minute drive from Casa Paco.

Almería exudes a real Andalusian atmosphere, without being overwhelmed by tourists. Almería is located on a wide bay and was a powerful city a thousand years ago, because from here the Moors ruled over large parts of Andalusia and Murcia. The eye-catcher of Almería is the Moorish fort Alcabaza from the 11th century, which is certainly worth a visit.

The old town is a maze of streets with shops, cafes, bodegas and old wine shops, interrupted by large and small squares, such as the Plaza Vieja, the most beautiful square in Almería.

To stroll, you can go to the ramblas in the newer part of the city. They continue to the port, where in the morning the fishing boats moor. Almería also has a pleasant seaside promenade with sandy beaches at the end.

If you drive from Casa Paco via the coastal road towards Almería, you end up in one of the most desolate places in Spain. The Cabo de Gata-Níjar nature park extends along both sides of a peninsula. Nature in this area of ​​volcanic origin is extremely rugged, but with cliffs, bays, rock formations, dry riverbeds and salt pans.
