Gran experiencia descubriendo la ciudad de Almería. La mañana comenzó en la Catedral para después ir aventurándonos por cada rincón de La Almedina. Se podía respirar por cada calle la singularidad de este barrio. Las explicaciones de Marcos hacían que lo visual no quedará en un mero rato en el que las fotos fueran lo más destacable, sino que conocer el origen e historia de Almería ha sido espectacular. La Plaza Vieja, la Calle de las Tiendas y Puerta Purchena han sido otros de los lugares de la visita. Muy recomendable para aquel que quiere acercarse a esta provincia.
