Tour description

My proposal is that you get to know the Heart of the Historic Center of the city of Almería. Are you in?

"ALMERÍA TOURISM" will present you the most important places, monuments, characters and sculptures in the heart of the city of Almería : Puerta de Purchena, the Shelters of the Spanish Civil War, the Church of Santiago, the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, the Alcazaba... .

And I will also tell you which are the best places to eat and many curiosities.

I will also take you through the old neighborhoods of Almería where you can learn what life is like today, and I will tell you what it was like before.

I want you to get to know Almería and fall in love with it:

Featured sites:

  • Purchena Gate
  • Civil War Shelters
  • John Lennon
  • Shops Street
  • Plaza Vieja or Town Hall
  • Ramon de Campoamor Square
  • Petete's Big Book
  • Cathedral
  • Sanctuary of the Virgin of the Sea
  • Hall of Fame
  • And more places and characters!

🙂 A minimum of attendees is required.

🙂 If we are few and/or we have a good pace, the visit will last less than two hours and if we are a large group it may last a few minutes longer.

🙂 If you are interested in taking another guided tour to a place in the city or time that is not specified, write to me and we will see what is the best solution for you and your group.

🙂 If it is a group of friends or family, I love that they tell me what they prefer to see and to be able to personalize the guided tour according to the tastes and needs of the visitor.

🙂 If you want a guided tour in another language, tell me because maybe I don't offer it on this platform but I speak it or maybe I know a guide who knows it.
