One of the first things that come to mind when you live in Madrid and you think about Almería, a province in the South East of Spain, is “it is far” and “it must be really hot over there…”
Believe us, it is far. And indeed very hot.
However, despite the really poor rail infraestructure, and the expensive airline tickets, it is one of the most valued destinations for domestic turism. And honestly, it is worth going through the 600 kilometres that expand from the capital to the Andalusian province, especially when traveling with friends.
