Almeria is located in one of Europe's biodiversity "hot spots". Here you can find from species typical of tundra through to subdesertic flora, this being the flora of Almeria it is one of the richest in Europe.
There are in Almeria a lot of endemic plants, that is, species that are only found here or that have their habitat in a reduced area that includes our province.
That is why Almeria is especially attractive to those who want to study the flora of our territory, as well as to the photography of flowers enthusiasts, given the great variety, rarity, or beauty of some species.
- Obviously, if we want to continue enjoying the beauty of our flora, we must be respectful with our plants, and never pull them up to take them home, for in a very short time they will be withered, so our enjoyment will be ephemeral.
- The best way to keep a flower's beauty is by photographing it, in this way we will keep it magnificent for ever.
- The observation of flowers is not only limited to spring, as some could think, but we can find them throughout the year, though spring is certainly the season when the great burst takes place. In the same way, we should not think that in a dry place, apparently devoid of life, we will not find anything, for some of our most beautiful flowers grow in enclaves of this kind.
