Sorbas and Gypsum Karst
Sorbas is a municipality in Almeria with a history dating back to prehistoric; it is known that the first Iberian settlements traded with the Phoenicians and there is a probability that this village is of Greek origin.
A walk through the streets of Sorbas can show you curiosities like the Arab clay ovens still fully operational in the district of Las Alfarerias.
