Should you visit Cadiz or Almeria?
Trying to figure out where to travel next? This travel cost comparison between Cadiz and Almeria can help. For many travelers, the cost of a destination is a primary consideration when choosing where to go.
Cadiz is a port city in the southwestern area of Spain. It is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain, and one of the oldest in western Europe, which means it has a lot of historic charm and many historic landmarks. Cadiz stands on a peninsula jutting out into a bay which is a small slice of land, and is almost entirely surrounded by water. The landscape has a lot of natural beauty, and there is plenty to see and do. Because of its long history, some areas of the city are very old and these sections differ drastically from the newer more modern areas; where the older neighborhoods have narrow, winding streets, the newer areas have wide avenues with modern buildings. Unlike most other ports of its size it seems immediately relaxed and easy going, not at all threatening, even at night. The city has a great tradition of liberalism and tolerance making it a very welcoming destination.
Almeria is a city (and province) in the Andalusia region of Spain. It is located in the southeast area of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea. Almeria is a charming area rich in history. Though it is not as well known as some more popular cities in the area, such as Granada, Seville, or Malaga, its popularity has increased significantly over the years with the growth of its holiday areas. Almeria has over 62 miles of untamed coastline, something that is hard to find on the Mediterranean, and has outstandingly beautiful landscapes, which stands out even in an area of natural beauty. The spectacular beaches with warm waters of the Mediterranean, abundant historic and cultural sites, and large tourist centers makes Almeria a great travel destination.
