Squares and castles
The Plaza del Ayuntamiento is one of the prettiest squares in town. Admire the gorgeous Baroque city hall and stroll under the arcades that flank both sides of the square. For the best view of the city, walk up to the Castillo de Santa Bárbara, on top of Monte Benacantil. At night, parade along the Explanada de España. Order a drink on one of the many patios and watch the locals play a game of chess. Alicante is not only perfect for a city trip but also makes a great starting point for a longer holiday in Spain.

Beautiful parks and historic streets
If the beach is too hot, seek refuge in one of the delightful city parks, such as El Palmeral with its refreshing waterfalls. Or admire the stone sculptures in Canalejas Park. Alicante is also a wonderful shopping destination. Admire the wares at the historic Central Market or buy hand-painted ceramics in the narrow streets of the old city centre, Santa Cruz. Finish the day with delicious tapas at one of the many cafés and restaurants around the lively harbour area. This is the real ‘La buena vida’!
