Full description
Embark on an excursion to the only desert in Europe, the Tabernas Desert and enjoy a truly unique tour. Meet your local guide and head off to discover some filming locations that have been significant in the history of the Western cinematic genre. 

Start at the entrance to the Oasys Mini Hollywood Theme Park and walk to the interior of this wonderful place, arriving at one of the main boulevards near the small artificial oasis that was built for the filming of Lawrence of Arabia. During your visit of approximately 2.5 hours, you'll get to explore locations that played a part in Western films. Compare scenes from these films with what you see in front of you at the park.

After having enjoyed these great locations and heard stories and anecdotes, head to the town of Tabernas. Take a tour of the Interpretation Center of Terrera Ventura and learn about the desert's evolution and formation, as well as the remains that have been found from the first settlements of the town of Terrera Ventura. Then, climb to the top of the Tabernas Castle and enjoy panoramic views of the Sierras Filabres, Sierra Alhamilla, and much of the desert. Around 3:30 PM, you will return to Almeria or Roquetas de Mar.
