Almeria itself offers a good mix of city and beach life. A highlight is the 10th century Alcazaba, which sits on top of San Cristobal Hill. From the citadel’s walls, you can enjoy fantastic views of the city and port. Another highlight is the Nicolas Salmeron Park, where you can stroll under the shade of the palm trees that line it. Located by the marina, it offers great views of the sea and boats.
