Alicante is a historic city that is dominated by the massive Castillo de Santa Barbara, a testament to the city's history and key events.
This Valencian province town on the Mediterranean coast serves as the provincial capital of Alicante. Although it is the fourth-most populous province in Spain with 320,000 people, it is not a very large city.
What are the attractions in Alicante?
The city's growth in tourism has been aided by the presence of an international airport in the nearby town of Elche, which is only 9 km distant.
Additionally, it is among the cities that receive the greatest number of visitors from all around Spain. Like all of the nearby towns in this province, Alicante has experienced significant economic decline as a result of tourism and the influx of thousands of visitors every year who come for the region's sun, beaches, gastronomy, and rich cultural history.
Arriving in this city, one is first struck by the breathtaking view of the Castle of Santa Barbara on atop Monte Benacantil, looking out over the Bay and the city of Alicante. a castle that has been present for some of the most transcendent events in the city's history. It has come to represent Alicante and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city. You can explore its inside by going to the many rooms, taking in the Alicante Museum, and taking in one of the best city vistas.
The number of museums, churches, and ancient structures in Alicante is enormous. Among all of its assets, the Church of Santa Maria de Alicante, the Central Market or Cathedral of St. Nicholas, as well as the breathtakingly beautiful neighborhood of Santa Cruz at the foot of Mount Benacantil—one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city—are prominent. This neighborhood is home to cottages that are brightly decorated with colorful pots and plants.
Alicante's Top Beaches
Alicante has a unique climate, similar to the rest of the Levantine coast, with scorching summers and mild winters with little to no precipitation. It is a great place to travel in both the winter and the summer because the average annual temperature is often a warm 20 degrees. With such a favorable climate, it is not surprising that the Alicantinos enjoy the region's beautiful beaches all year long. In the summer, both visitors and locals flock to beaches like Playa del Postiguet, Playa San Juan, and Playa de la Albufereta.
The Explanada promenade in Alicante, with its lovely floor depicting the waves of the sea that runs between rows of Palm trees, the El Palmeral Park with a lake where you can ride in a boat and row, or sit back and relax to enjoy the sound of the waterfalls, and recreational areas where have fun, it is an oasis in the city, are just a few of the parks and lovely walks that the city has to offer.
Tabarca Island, 22 kilometers off the shore, sits just across from the city. the sole inhabited island in the Valencian community and its largest. You can take day cruises from the harbor to this gorgeous island and take a dip in its clear waters.
Everything you could possibly want from a vacation is there, including a fantastic temperature, beaches, culture, delectable cuisine, and the kind hospitality of its residents, who will make us cherish our time spent in this stunning Mediterranean city.
