Alicante is a port city on Spain's Costa Blanca and with its prime location it is a very popular destination with many holidaymakers. Landmarks and cultural sites can be found in many parts of Alicante. In particular the Alicante promenade La Explanade de España, which consists of more than 6.5 million small marble stones attracts many visitors each year. A gentle walk down the promenade will provide an insight into the character of the city. With many craft stores, coffee shops, and locals having mid-afternoon siestas, it won’t be long until one feels at home in Alicante.
For a bit more history, the Town Hall should be on every tourist’s to-do list. Built originally in the 18th Century and famously known for its beautiful interior, the Town Hall holds many festivals throughout the year. Every November and December the Marionette Theatre Festival takes place and has lots of entertainment for children and adults alike.
With its location on the Spanish coastline a road trip from Alicante should be considered to full appreciate the whole area. Getting out of the city one is met by breathtaking countryside and costal views of the Costa Blanca region and the Mediterranean Sea. Randomly stumbling across small towns and villages is part of any road trip experience, but there is a particular village that is worth a visit. Take the AP-7 out of Alicante past Benidorm to the quaint village of Altea. Famous for its Virgen de Consuelo church with its blue roof, Altea still provides an authentic Spanish feel. On Sunday, a nice drive is to head north of Altea to the small village of La Nucia for its lively market. For a longer road trip one should take the opportunity to drive around the Costa Blanca region and visit the neighbouring cities of Valencia and Murcia.
