Almeria Greenhouses

Almeria is best known as the Greenhouse of Europe, but it's arid landscape is also home to the Volcanic Cabo de Gata national park and the Tabernas mountains, the background to many films. Once home to the Moors, and now home to a new wave of Africans that come to work in the Greenhouses, this unique combination of history and landscape has left Almeria retaining a feeling of both frontier and durability, where fantasies of another place are played out against the need for survival.
