We very much enjoyed our visit to Los Millares. The site is not only very important but also very impressive. Both the scale of the settlement and the level of development are striking.
We also benefitted from the abundant information and explanations in English.
Our visit was on a clear crisp day in January: that meant that it was very pleasant to walk along the paths and among the excavations. Visitors on a 40-degree day in August might not feel the same way, especially as the site is mostly only open at midday.
Indeed, because the site is often not open, potential visitors might like to verify that it will be open before setting out.

We visited Los Millares today and weren't disappointed as we both love ancient history
it would suggest as we discussing the museum in Almeria first as it is provided a really good overview.
However everything about this site is extremely well explained and all boards are listed in Spanish and English.
Notonlycanyou see historical defensive walls,burial chambers and workhouses but also there is a reconstruction of what it would have looked like in the Copper
age.
Today was extremely hot to visit (35 degrees) while there are toilets onsite bw sure to bring water,hats and water as there is little shade if any when you are on the site itself.

Not easy to find but well worth the effort. A huge site dating back to 3,500BC and still under exploration. Two separate routes, one to defensive walls and buildings, the other to the necropolis. Plus presentation at small Interpretation Centre. Allow at least 2.5 hours to see everything. Free entry but closes promptly at 2pm. Recommended to also visit the Archeological museum in Almeria, where many of the finds are displayed and put into an interesting sociological context.

Out of the way and easy to miss the white building that is not well marked. There is no charge but perhaps there should be, as the experience could be enhanced. Make sure to watch the nine minute video as it gives you a better idea of what you will be seeing at the end of your walks. There are signs with English that give you some idea of what you are looking at. You will need about one hour to walk about the low raise ruins and another thirty minutes to get to and from the reconstruction site. You cannot get from one site to the other without going back to the main building. The location is not handicap friendly. Pleasant enough, but not overly exciting unless you are into archaeology.

The archeological museum of Almeria is an excellent visit to do (and even more when it is raining - which is not supposed to be often!). Free for people from the EU, it starts with a temporary exposition, now (until the 18th of July 2018) about Gods, Graves and People from the Roman and Phoenician village of Baria. You're already transported back in History in beautiful rooms where colours and lights are well managed, and you discover the style of life and beliefs of these people. Then, the museum contains 3 floors, by chronological order, about the Millares. You're also going to learn a lot about how the people lived and their evolution with agriculture, the arrival of the Romans and the Arabs (then massacred by the Christians). For those who have the chance to go before the 18th of March, there is also a beautiful temporary exposition about Spain and Iran, with pictures and paintings (I personally recommend you to search for the art of Shahla Moazzezi if you don't have the opportunity to go at this exposition). To conclude, the visit lasts between 1 and 2 hours, and there are a lot of interactive screens in addition to the objects exposed.

This a great site and well worth the visit, but do not go to the address Carretera Rhonda that is the museum in Almeria. The site is on the road between Godor and Santa Fe 20km away!

Sometimes I get more fund out of reading past reviews. “We felt rushed because they told us they closed at 2”. Well so did we but that was because they closed at 2 and we got there a5 12.30!!!!!! How an earth can anybody criticise a museum for having the audacity to have a fixed time that they close? Did this visitor believe that they should stay open late just for them! Anyway, it is excellent and well worth the effort to get there.

A very well laid out set of exhibits in this archaeological site about 20km north of Almeria.
A reconstruction of the buildings in a seperate area to the archaeological digs really brings the place to life.
One of the earliest early bronxe age sites in western europe.

Following a visit to the site you should go to the extremely well presented Meseum of Almeria to see the artifacts discovered on this site

Having previously seen some of the finds from this site in the main museum in Almeria, it was good to walk around the place where they came from (just outside Gador). The frequent information boards around the site are detailed and written in both Spanish and (very good) English and the reconstructions (away from the main site) are very well done and give a good insight into what life must have been like here over 4,000 years ago. The small indoor museum at the entrance is also good and is worth visiting both before and after walking round the site. The site is open daily, except Mondays and Tuesdays, from 10 am to 2pm and you need to spend at least two hours there to see it all. Admission is free.

This may not be of much interest to people who have no interest in archeology, as it is mostly low walls (the ruin of an ancient fort). Be sure to watch the movie in the visitor center first, as it gives a good explanation of what you will be seeing, and puts the importance of the site into its historical context. Then stroll the ruins, let your imagination run wild, and soak up the peace and quiet of the beautiful scenery. Be sure to also visit the reconstructed dwellings and tomb adjacent to the site; informative for adults and fun for kids.

Los Millares is a very interesting and beautiful place, well worth a visit. In fact, we will be making another trip there soon, as there is such a lot to see. Be sure to watch the explanatory film before you start out from the Information Centre. It helps if you are able to walk for half an hour or so, as the site is spread over a fairly wide area.

Watch out for opening times, I think it's open from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm and possibly later in the day, and may be closed on certain days too.
