Alicante and Benidorm
Alicante & Benidorm
Information in Spanish
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.
Alicante is a port city located on the Mediterranean coast and is one of the best places to visit in Spain. In our visit we will enjoy the Castle of Santa Bárbara, the Historical Center and the Port.
This magical city with its impressive light attracts many tourists because of its Mediterranean climate, its castle, its white sandy beaches and its historic center.
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.
We shouldn’t forget its old town with narrow streets the Basilica of Santa Maria, and the oldest church in the city.
After Alicante, we leave to Benidorm.
Known as the “New York of the Mediterranean” is the second Spanish city with more skyscrapers after Madrid.
An impressive place with a wonderful natural environment and modern skyscrapers.
Its specialties are the spacious beaches of fine golden sand and its skyscrapers. As an example, the tallest hotel in Europe is in Benidorm called “Bali”, the views from the terrace are unmissable.
