What to do in the Levante Almeriense

The Levante Almeriense region covers a large area made up of 13 municipalities, with some of the most beautiful beaches and coves in the entire province of Almeria. There, you can practice countless water sports, from kayaking and paddle surfing to snorkelling and diving in its impressive seabeds. Those of the municipality of Carboneras and its spectacular Saint Andrew Island stand out. Also, if you move away from the sea, you will find charming villages with incalculable archaeological value. The Levante Almeriense is one of the main tourist attractions in the province of Almeria.

If you are looking for nature tourism, you cannot miss Sorbas, where you can enjoy the spectacular view of the Afa Ravine. From the different viewpoints, you can see the group of houses that seem to hang from the ravine. Sorbas is known as "Little Cuenca" for a reason. In this town, we also recommend visiting the Natural Plaster Karst of Sorbas, a natural set of caves excavated by the Aguas river. In addition, you can visit one of the few Arab ovens still in operation and enjoy the famous Sorbas pottery. Of course, you cannot miss the Geode of Pulpi, one of the natural wonders of the province of Almeria. A visit to this alone justifies the trip to this region of the province of Almeria.

If you want to go hiking, one of the best options is Turre, in the heart of Sierra Cabrera, where you can visit the Depopulated of Teresa. In addition, its Parish Church combines the neo-Gothic style with the Mudejar, which makes it very striking. In Lubrin, located in the Sierra de los Filabres, the Las Moletas Path stands out with a linear route of 7 km of impressive landscapes.

In Antas, you can visit an aqueduct from the beginning of the 20th century and two archaeological sites: one where pieces from the Bronze Age were discovered and another belonging to the last moments of the Neolithic.

In Bedar, you will find beautiful churches and hermitages, an old mosque converted into a church and many vestiges of the mining industry, such as a loading station and the hopper with which the minerals were loaded into the wagons.

Los Gallardos is another town worth visiting, especially for the Forgotten Roman Villa of Cadima, whose discoveries can now be seen in the Museum of Almeria.

If you are seeking cultural attractions, the range of options is immense: Mojacar, one of the most beautiful towns in Spain; its neighbour Garrucha, a fishing village with a special charm; Cuevas del Almanzora with its impressive cave houses; Huercal-Overa, one of the richest and most prosperous towns in the province; and Vera, the capital of the region and a town with a rich historical and cultural heritage.
