Photo: Town Of Sorbas Costa De Almeria Andalusia Spain

The quaint town of Sorbas, on the Costa de Almeria, is a small community nestled amongst the karst formations of the Costa de Almeria region of Andalusia, Spain.

Sorbas is a small town, population around 2800, on the Costa de Almeria in Andalusia, Spain. Sorbas hangs on the edge of cliffs, overlooking an arid scene. The Romans called the little settlement Sorbas - 'pot of sand', although the Spanish verb 'sorber' means 'to soak', which seems more appropriate when learning the definition of 'karst'.

The formations around Sorbas, in Andalusia, were made when soft rocks, such as limestone, dolomite and gypsum interact with underground water channels and streams. This interaction cause numerous caves, eroded surfaces and almost desert-like landscapes. Over the centuries the town of Sorbas, on the Costa de Almeria in Spain, has become famous for the pottery made from the clay, which comes from the 'pots of sand'.

The town of Sorbas nestled into the karst landscape, Costa de Almeria, Province of Almeria, Andalusia (Andalucia), Spain, Europe.
