About Alicante and Places to Visit
Alicante is located on Spain’s southeastern coast. A hub for visitors touring Spain’s Costa Blanca region, Alicante is a port city and capital of the Alicante province. The city is characterized by well-preserved traditional architecture. In Alicante’s oldest neighborhood, Barrio Santa Cruz, the windows are adorned with colorful flowers that draw tourists in to take a closer look.
Here you can explore centuries of history still visible in the architecture of the buildings on the neighborhood’s steep narrow streets. On the harbor side of the city, the Explanada de España is a popular place to take a leisurely stroll. Along this pleasant esplanade, you will pass by the picturesque marina with dozens of sailboats bobbing in the blue waters of the harbor. Take time to stop and enjoy a view of this iconic palm tree-lined pathway and the blur of pedestrians as they pass by.
Another favorite place to sit and soak up the Mediterranean sun is Rambla de Mendez Nunez. If sunset watching is on your itinerary, a spectacular sunset can be observed at the medieval Castillo de Santa Bárbara. Dating to the 9th Century, the fortification is on a hilltop above Alicante. This site is where Bronze Age, Iberian and Roman artifacts have been discovered by archaeologists, reflecting its occupation by many civilizations over the centuries.
Alicante–Elche Airport (LEAL) is located 9 miles (14.5 km) from the city center of Alicante. Empty legs and transient aircraft are extremely popular in the region.
