home / Location Guide / Costa de Almeria /


One of the most important commercial centres in the province of Almeria is the walled and renaissance town of Vera which was originally called Baria and located by the sea in Villaricos. Before an earthquake destroyed it in 1518, the Arabs had moved the town to the hill of Espiritu Santo.

The rich municipality of Vera attracts a large number of tourists all year round because of the many interesting tourist spots, handicrafts, cuisine, and the warmth and hospitality of the local residents.

Vera has a 5 kilometre stretch of long beach (Vera Playa) famous for its crystalline waters and powdery white sand with a beautiful mountain range as a backdrop. This small town takes pride in being home to Spainís first Naturist Hotel which is situated on the beach. One part of the beach is open to nudists and comes complete with hotel accommodation and residential and camping areas.

Important travel destinations in Vera are the following: the 16th century built La Encarnacion church which was said to be built as a fort against the Moors and are currently flanked by 4 towers, the Ayuntamiento town hall, the La Victoria monastery, the Valle del Este golf club, the 6th century Royal Hospital, the Cuatro Canos fountain, the Espiritu Santo chapel, and the historic town museum. The Plaze de Gloria square provides a breathtaking lookout point.

The La Encarnacion Church features remarkable altar pieces and architecture. The Ayuntamiento, on the other hand, houses the municipal archives and an archaeological and ethnographic museum exhibiting the rich culture, history, and tradition of Vera.

This prosperous town also abounds in locally and artistically made handicrafts. These complement the exciting cuisine served in Veraís various bars and restaurants.

A very attractive area for tourists, Vera takes pride in its beaches and resorts which serve as a perfect getaway for visitors looking to soak up the sun. The beaches of Vera are clean and have large sandy seabeds perfect for snorkeling.
