Almería (photo of the port)

Many different peoples have contributed to the architecture and culture of Almería. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans have all left their mark, but it was the Moors that really put Almería on the map! In Roman times it was called Portus Magnus but later it was called al-Mariyah, meaning 'Mirror of the Sea'.
