Church of Our Lady of Sorrows (Nacimiento - Almeria)
It is a Baroque church, dating from the 18th century.

It is an imposing ecclesiastical construction whose plant has the shape of a Latin cross, with a large dome above it.

One of the most striking elements of this church is its façade, considered one of the most beautiful religious buildings in Almeria, and the tower that is imposed from the distance on the construction.
The interior predominates in this construction, with its vault so high that it gives way to light, which matches the light colors of the church, as well as the embossed walls, which attract the attention of those who visit it.

Many tourists also visit the church during the traditional festivities of the town, when the church is one of the main protagonists.

The Hermitage has a significant wrought iron cross marking the site from many kilometers away, and has become one of the favorite places to function as a viewpoint of the town.

Caves of the Rock of the Virgin

Due to its origins linked to the Paleolithic era, it is very common to find vestiges of the life of that time in the villages of Almeria.

Such is the case of the Caves of the Rock of the Virgin, located in the municipality of Nacimiento. There are five groups of paintings in outlines drawn on the stone walls that are part of the hill that is in front of the town of Gilma. Among the paintings, we can identify some four-footed animals and anthropomorphic forms that have a great anthropological value.
