I guess it was good in its day but has been left, what seems, unattended and upkeep. No signage or information available but can find info online, or ask a local. We were told it was for loading and unloading cargo for large ships.

Standing out in the harbour on Almeria's waterfront is an unusual monument to the city's past. I don't know of anywhere else that has an ore bridge preserved as a heritage item. In its prime, this must have been a busy area but now... it...More

Well what to say about Cable Ingles. I'm sure for some it's a sight to see but we found it quite boring. Very spectacular in its engineering. In its day, when it was in full operation with trains running, I'm sure it was wonderful. But...More

This is a strange looking construction on the edge of the harbour. It is a railway pier which used to be used for loading mineral ore. Not particularly scenic, but an interesting piece of history.

This industrial monument is a reminder of times gone by. Trains dumped their cargo of iron ore into storage tanks and from there were emptied into ships moored by the pier.

We came across this structure by accident, we were just exploring the city and there it was right by the ferry port, and the Mauthausen monuments situated under the steel work. The rusty old feature is still standing and deserves at the very least some...More

Built by Eiffel more famous for his tower, this is a pier built to unload iron ore mined in the mountains behind the city, from railway trucks into ships for export. It gives a hint of what must once have been a hectic industrial area
