Craftsmanship in Almería

Almería boasts a rich tapestry of artisanal heritage that permeates the entire province. Across this sun-drenched land, one can encounter a myriad of settlements where the artistry of yesteryears is still vibrantly alive, passed down through the ages.

The pride of the province lies in its exquisite marble, a sought-after material that graces the halls and homes across Europe. The textile industry also holds a place of prominence, with the majority of its wares spun in the town of Níjar, and the age-old looms of Berja and Laujar of Andarax continuing their rhythmic dance.

No visit to Almería is truly complete without immersing oneself in the celebrated sites of craftsmanship. These artisanal wonders, a legacy of the Muslim era from the time of the Kingdom of Granada, beckon tourists to wander through the myriad quarries and workshops that dot the landscape of Almería, where one can discover:
