About Alicante

Alicante is one of the most beautiful cities on the Costa Blanca. It is located on the Mediterranean coast and is one of the tourist centres in Spain. This city annually attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists with its mild, warm Mediterranean climate, rich history and magnificent architectural monuments.

You can get acquainted with the history and culture of Alicante, stroll along its cozy streets and see the main attractions of the city during our Alicante Day Trip.

What to see in Alicante

Alicante has everything you need for a seaside holiday and entertainment, but it also has several historical sites, including a medieval fortress with incredible views of the city, a classic Mediterranean old town with whitewashed houses and cobbled streets, as well as interesting museums, beautiful cathedrals and churches.

Alicante old town (Santa Cruz) & city centre

The heart of Alicante as most cities is in the deepest centre, where local culture with its traditions gave birth to the modern city of the sun.

The Santa Cruz quarter (El barrio de Santa Cruz) is one of the most charming areas of Alicante. It is located next to the castle of Santa Barbara and serves as a kind of bridge between the fortress and the old city of Alicante. The street architecture is very typical of Spain: almost all the houses in the Santa Cruz area are white with bright colourful details in the form of multi-coloured tiles or flowers. 

This is a real corner of tranquillity and beauty, where you can enjoy a slow unhurried walk along the steep streets with picturesque views of the surroundings.

Alicante Castle Santa Barbara

Alicante Castle (Castle of Santa Barbara) is located in the Alicante city centre on top of Mount Benacantil at an altitude of 167 m.

The origin of the castle dates back to the end of the 9th century when the Iberian Peninsula was under Muslim rule. In the past, the fortress was of great strategic and defensive importance, since from its height one could see the entire Gulf of Alicante and the enemies approaching the coast. You can be convinced of this, because even now the Santa Barbara Castle offers a magnificent panoramic view of the city and its surroundings.

 Is a must visit because of its history  and the panoramic views of the city

Promenade (Explanada de España) & Alicante harbour

The Explanada de España is a seafront promenade that runs parallel to the port and Canalejas Park. The boulevard is one of the city’s most popular spots and an iconic landmark in Alicante. 

The Explanada was built in the first half of the 20th century on the site of an old dam. The embankment road is decorated with multi-coloured marble tiles (more than 6 million pieces!), which paint a wavy mosaic in red, blue and white. On both sides of the boulevard, four rows of palm trees are planted, which stretch for half a kilometre in length. The Explanada houses are emblematic buildings of the city of Alicante, such as the Hotel Gran Sol and the House of Carbonell.

Many people congregates on the promenade; locals enjoy the time of “tardeo” and visitors enjoy some Spanish tapas and walk
