Alicante & Guadalest
Alicante is a port city located on the Mediterranean coast, in our visit we will enjoy the Castle of Santa Bárbara, Historical Center and Port. Alicante is a good option for a weekend, one of the best places to visit in Spain.
Alicante: The second most populated city in the Valencian community, which was founded by the Greeks under the name Akra Leuké (“white promontory”), then the Romans named it Castrum Album (“white fortress”) and Lucentum (place of light), and by the arrival of the Arabs this name was converted to al-Laqant (Current name in Valencian) and in spanish Alicante.
This magical city with an impressive light attracts many tourists because of its Mediterranean climate, the castle, white sand beaches and the historic centre.
The Santa Bárbara castle is located in the city centre at 167 m altitude. From there you have panoramic views over the city, the sea, beaches and their surroundings. It is just awesome.
The second attraction of this city is the Esplanade of Spain, a passage parallel to the port, built during the first half of the 20th century, with six and a half million tesserae that draw a wavy mosaic of red, blue and white colours.
