Almería is a province of southern Spain. It is bordered by the provinces of Granada, Murcia, and the Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is Almería.  Almeria belongs to the Autonomous Community of Andalucia, in Southern Spain.

Europe's only desert is found in Almería, and is part of the National Park of Sierra Nevada (in the Sierra Nevada mountain range), which it shares with Granada province.  The desert landscape and climate that characterizes part of the province have made it an ideal setting for Western films, especially during the 1960s. Because of the demand for these locations, quite a number of Western towns were built near the Desert of Tabernas. Films such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars were shot here. Years later the film of 800 Bullets was filmed in the same place. Large sections of Lawrence of Arabia and Patton were shot there as well.  The principal river is Rio Andarax (Andarax River), which is located near Granada in the Alpujarras.

2 bedroom Apartment, sleeps 4, 3 min walk to beach (Ref: 3992) Garrucha, Costa Almeria
This apartment has One double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom. There is a pool and garden area. On the outskirts of Garrucha, only 10 min walk to shops. Situated in the East of Almería, which has all the flavours of the Mediterranean Coast. Garrucha was created around a fishing port, where boats fished under the protection of the "Torre de la Garrucha" ("Garrucha Tower") which was located by the sea, next to the "Alfolí" (Salt store), where today we can find the Town Hall. That typical Nasrid building was made with adobe walls; it was probably built as a refuge for the Muslim fishermen when they were attacked by the Christians who came from Lorca (Murcia). This tower was destroyed by the earthquake of 1518. Being traditionally fishing village, Garrucha was called "the small San Sebastián", the big port for the mines which once had Vice-consuls from ten different countries after the expansion of the shipment of silver, iron and lead in the middle of the 19th century.  Sleeps 4.
