Almeria

Almería ist eine Hafenstadt an der andalusischen Mittelmeerküste. Das Stadtbild ist nordafrikanisch geprägt: enge Gassen, alte weiße Häuser, Gärten und Palmenalleen. Der Name der Stadt leitet sich vom arabischen al-Mariyya ‚Spiegel des Meeres‘ ab.
Die Stadt war bereits 15-mal Startort einer Etappe der spanischen Radrenn-Rundfahrt "Vuelta a España".

      I forgot the name of the artist.

      ...but I remember the name of the sculpture: "monumento a la mujer" = "monument to the woman".

      So for me it is very clear:

      I see a female cyclist stretching the muscles after a bike marathon!  :o)))
