Alicante travel tips

1) Wander the picturesque streets of Casco Antiguo in Alicante

Casco Antiguo is the most colourful district in Alicante. It resembles a village in the heart of the city and sprawls on the hills beneath the castle. When moving to it, you'll have to pass steep stairways between the white walls. But, you can admire doorsteps and balconies decorated with flowers and painting shutters and doors in green and blue. You can unwind in restaurants and cities located in Casco Antiguo.

2) In Alicante, come to see the Santa Cruz Hermitage standing on the slopes of Mount Benacantil

This religious building was constructed in the late 18th century. It lies in the picturesque neighbourhood of Santa Cruz. The construction stands over the Ampolla tower, a part of the few remaining walls in the old city. The Holy Week procession starts from the Santa Cruz Hermitage. Visit this historical spot at 27 Calle Diputado Auset.

3) Relish the beauty of the Alicante landscape design in the Canalejas park

The Canalejas park is a place in Alicante where nature and urban design encounter. This open space lies near the sea and the Explanada de España. Visit the park to marvel at the spectacular lush vegetation. You can also watch about 20-metres-high and hundred-year-old plants. Get to the park Canalejas by bus or tram.
