Almeria

April 3, 2011

Some more pictures from Almeria, over one month after my short visit there. This time not about la Chanca and not at all something that will give a full picture of the city. Just a few more pictures about some parts of the city: the airport, the way from the airport to the harbour, a view of the harbour from the hotel at sunset, with the “cargadero de mineral” where iron minerals from the inland where poured into the cargo boats. A walk to the city centre up to the beautifully refurbished town hall, one of the central sqaures with palm trees and white marble flooring, small one- or two-storey houses with large entrance doors and large windows with individually and prominently designed grills, the Alcazaba Fortress and its wonderful moorish garden, a view on the popular quarter with flat roof terraces and moorish urban pattern, the house of cinema and so on. This is what I happened to see between the sessions of a very intense 3-days Urbact workshop. The peak of an iceberg of cultural stratification that the city hs to offer to the visitor. Good Bye Almeria.
