Within the municipality of Adra are situated Las Albuferas, maritime lagoons that sealed off the sea due to the accumulation of sediments, a place of great ecological importance because of the variety of flora and fauna present in the wetland.
Unfortunately for lovers of nature the wetland is surrounded by intensive cultivation. Albuferas de Adra is situated close to Adra, a town of Almeria which has been a stopover of different cultures throughout history and of which are still remaining traces. The port of Adra played an important role in the past; it was the port from which he left the last Arab king of Granada and it was used during the 20th century to ship the mined ore.
