Almeria may not be as renowned as some of the other destinations on the South East coast of Spain, but this is only because it was one of the last to be explored by the tourist trade. It still holds that sense of newness and exploration, so car hire in Almeria is highly recommended. The defining aesthetic feature of the city is the Moorish castle of Alcazaba, which looms over the town leading to the seafront. The area is served well by the A7 which is one of the biggest engineering projects in Europe, running up and down the Spanish coast, which makes hiring a car in Almeria and the surrounding areas very popular.
Because the city isn't necessarily a tourist trap, parking and getting around can be a bit easier by car and visiting attractions such as Cabo de Gata national Park can be a real treat. The area is of outstanding natural beauty and is a UNESCO biosphere reserve. it's a coastal park and in it You'll find many unspoilt beaches and coastal hideaways. Hiring a car in Almeria to explore Cabo de Gata is a good idea.
A short travel biography of Almeria wouldn't be complete without mentioning the Fortress of Alcazaba which points back to the city's Moorish beginnings. Alcazaba provides a nice backdrop to the city harbour with the city sloping beautifully down towards the sea.
The beautifully ornate Almeria Cathedral is always worth a visit, and if you choose to rent a car in Almeria, we have a branch at Almeria Airport.
