Tabernas Desert - Almería

EUFCN Location Award

The Tabernas Desert is located on a strip of 11,625 hectares situated to the north of the city of  Almerìa, between the Filabres and Alhamilla mountain ranges. It is considered to be the only real desert on the whole European continent and its scenery is tremendously stimulating and startling. With a semiarid Mediterranean climate, rainfall that does not reach 250 mm per year and an average temperature over 17° C.

One of its most exploited economic resources is, curiously enough, the fact it has been used as a set for films.
