Things To Do on Roquetas De Mar Holidays

Over the course of the Costa Almeria’s 4,000 years of history, many great Mediterranean civilisations have left their mark on the culture of this area of Andalusia. From Phoenicians to Greeks and Carthaginians to Romans, they have been drawn by the area’s natural beauty and strategic position. The Moors thrived here and the region still retains the north African flavour that they brought with them from across the Mediterranean.
In more recent times, tourism has created a massive boom for the area as more people have discovered its natural potential. But, despite the progress, the people have retained their pride in the local culture, and the romantic image of Andalusia is still very much a thing of the present.
