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

We visited Almeria and took a walk down to this huge engineering structure. Whilst not for all, I was impressed with the historic technical design. Pity there was scant information/photographs.

An odd structure that sits on the side of the bay used in the past for loading materials on ships. Unfortunately there is no information there and it does look rather out of place.

This is a very old monument. It was used to load the boats with some minerals using a train on the top of it. It was designed by members of the Eiffel school.

This is an amazing structure, designed by Eiffel, but it is a shame that there are no information boards with the history of it. We had to look things up on line. Also we read you should view it in the dark as it is...More

Our walk to the Cable Ingles was rewarded with an awesome view of outdated tracks once intended to unload large ships at the shore. It is a monstrosity. Unfortunately we did not see any plaque indicating historical info. That was disappointing.

Huge structure, being the remain of former miners times. Today, looking at beautiful landscape, the blue see and white beaches, It is hard to imagine, that the region was full of mines, that there was this kind of industry. Well; times change..
