Taberno (Almeria)
Taberno is located in the north of the province of Almeria, in the foothills of the Sierra de las Estancias, in the Almanzora Valley region.


The independence of Velez-Rubio finally came about in 1839. Before this event, an attempt had been made to achieve independence under the Cadiz Constitution of 1812. This established municipal autonomy on the condition of having more than 1,000 inhabitants and enough land for its citizens.

Taberno met these requirements and started the process. However, with the fall of the aforementioned constitution, Taberno depended on Velez-Rubio again until 1839, when it achieved its desired independence.
At the beginning of the 18th century, the population of Taberno was approximately 2,000 inhabitants.

However, with very few resources, a major economic crisis ensued, causing Taberno's population to decrease by more than half.

Among the livestock in Taberno, the production of goat's milk stands out. It is distributed throughout Spain, thereby achieving good economic benefits for the population.
