Discover the city of Alicante
Alicante is the second largest city in the region after Valencia and has a very rich history. Are you a culture lover? Then you will find lots to explore in this coastal city. You can easily fill your city trip with the best sights. Walk up Monte Benacantil mountain to visit the Castillo de Santa Bárbara, an impressive ninth century castle. From there, you have a beautiful view over the city, the impressive city hall and the old neighbourhoods such as El Barrio de Santa Cruz with its whitewashed houses. Walk and admire the sights. Make sure to take an occasional break at one of the many tapas restaurants. In a romantic mood? Stroll down the boulevard Explanada de España: over 600 metres framed by rows of palm trees, wavy tiles and the setting sun create a magical setting. In the covered Mercado Central market hall it's easy to get lost in the smells and colours and taste the local cuisine.
