The Costa de Almeria region

This province is the hottest in Andalucia with an average of more than 3,100 hours of annual sunshine, lasting from well before Easter into November. This is particularly noticeable in the area around Nijar. As the weather is so good Europe’s most powerful telescope has been installed here, on the outskirts of the small town of Gergal, along with a most important solar energy plant.

The natural protection of the mountain range of the Sierra de Gador also has resulted in the Almeria province being one of the most productive agricultural zones in Europe. It has more than 10,000 hectares of flowers and garden produce, much of it cultivated under plastic with a production volume of some 250 million kilos, 80% of which is exported with an estimated value of 22,000 million pesetas. Marble is another of Almeria’s major export products and is famed for its luminous, unblemished appearance.
