The city of Almeria is located in the Andalusia region of Spain. The city lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south east of Spain and is also the capital of the Almeria province. The city is popular with tourists and there are many things to see and do. The Alcazaba is a medieval fortress that was originally built in the 10th century, although it was subsequently destroyed by an earthquake in the 16th century. The fortress has large gardens, a well preserved keep and a triple line of walls. The city also has a Cathedral which resembles a fortress due to its towers, merlons and protected paths which were created to protect it from Mediterranean pirates. The cathedral was converted from a mosque to a Christian church before also being destroyed by an earthquake in 1522. The cathedral was subsequently rebuilt in the Renaissance style whilst retaining some of its defensive features.
The city's port provides passengers with ferry connections to Melilla, Algeria and Morocco. Mediterranean cruises also depart from the port. The port also has a marina which is popular with pleasure boats. The port is currently undergoing a period of expansion with new docks intended to increase the port's freight traffic.
Algeria's main port is Ghazaouet and is located a short distance from the border with Morocco and is the perfect destination from which to visit Tiemcen, which is about 70 km away. The city can trace its history back to ancient Roman times through to colonisation by the French but at its heart it has always been a fishing port. The city was known as Nemours when it was under French rule, after the French aristocrat who governed there. The city offers visitors a number of cafes and restaurants where they can enjoy the local seafood and fish specialities. The best beaches in Ghazaouet are located on the outskirts of the port like Marsa ben M’hidi with its 2 km stretch of fine sand.
