We went online to discover what this odd structure is. Given that it's an important piece of Almeria's history, it's a shame that there is no info point.

Interesting that Eiffel designed this structure but not really much to oggle at! It is near the bus and train station but not worth making a special visit to it in my opinion

I feel mean giving this an average score but it's something you look at and move on. I'm proud that it was built by the British but it's a loading dock. All be-it a rather splendid one.

The British built this railway as a means of moving iron ore from the mines inland to the coast where it was dropped directly into the hold of ships. No longer in use and not being particularly well looked after.

An outstanding piece of structure in need of conservation and yet one can still visualise how the trains cargo was transported to the waiting vessels many years ago.
