Presentation of El Ejido

The municipality of El Ejido (82,983 inhabitants in 2013, therefore the 3rd most populated municipality in the province; 22,700 ha; municipal website) is located straight in the centre of the "Plastic Sea" in the west of the Province of Almería. The town is located in Campo de Dalías at the foot hills of the Alpujarra Mountains. It arises like an island out of a landscape consisting just of greenhouses, where especially tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini are cultivated intensively and harvested four times a year. In the 1950, the number of inhabitants was just 3,000.

The municipality of El Ejido was established by separation from the former municipality of Dalías, which was split into two new municiplaities, Dalías and El Ejido, by Royal Decree No. 2,251, adopted on 30 July 1982 and published on 11 September 1982 in the Spanish official gazette, No. 218, p. 24,643 (text). The separation followed the transfer of the capital of the former municipality of Dalías from Dalías to El Ejido, approved on 8 May 1981 by the Government of Andalusia. An Information Commission for Territorial Reorganization was set up on 25 May 1981; the Commission validated the proposal tabled by the Villagers' Association of separation of the villages of Dalías and Celín from el Ejido. The municipality initiated the separation process on 2 April 1982, the proposal of separation being reaffirmed on 26 May 1982 and approved by the Almería Provincial Council.
