Begin your visit to Alicante with an incredible view over the city. High above the town, sitting on top of Benacantil Hill, is the Castillo de Santa Bárbara. You can reach the summit on foot, by car or by lift and enjoy the views from the walls.
Under the fortress stretch the streets of the Old City. The Casco Antiquo is an area full of art museums and historic buildings. The Concatedral de San Nicolás de Bari is considered one of the finest examples of Spanish Baroque architecture, while the Basilica de Santa María is the oldest church in the city, and it is still used today. Visit the administrative heart of Alicante, Alicante Town Hall and admire the rich interiors that were once commonplace in the region.
To enjoy the beaches of Alicante you don’t have to go far. Follow the mosaic tiles of the Esplanada de Espana to reach the Playa del Postiguet, at the foot of the Benacantil. Or take the tram to the vast bay of the Playa de San Juan for a day of sailing, volleyball and windsurfing.
