Almeria ("The Mirror of the Sea" in Arabic) was founded in 955 by the Moors, its Moorish castle called Alcazaba is the 2nd largest Muslim castle in Andalucia. Almeria was an important port from early times and a thriving silk industry in the 11th century brought wealth to the town. Although it was briefly occupied by the Christians in 1147 it did not finally fall to the Christians until 1489 when the forces of Ferdinand and Isabella took the city.

During the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), Almeria was shelled by the German navy and along with Malaga was one of the last cities to surrender to the forces of General Franco. Almeria today has a population of around 190,000 people, its main industry is agriculture although there is a growing tourist industry.
