THREE months after it closed its doors due to the Covid-19 lockdown, Almeria has reopened its doors to visitors.

Tourist visits resume today Thursday.

The cathedral reported in a post on social media that it is participating in the ‘Yo Apoyo Turismo Nacional’ (I Support National Tourism) initiative alone with dozens of other monuments across Spain.


The aim, the cathedral explained, is to encourage the public to support national tourist destinations, “not only to discover the beauty and heritage which the national territory offers, but to support the sector, our country’s great economic engine, and assist its recovery after this unprecedented crisis.”

The cathedral maintained that health safety and hygiene measures are guaranteed, with measures like disinfecting audio guides after every use.

Wearing a face mask, using hydro-alcoholic gel and social distancing are general health requirements.

The cathedral advises buying entries online to avoid queues and waits to get in.
