Alicante: a marvellous combination of the city and the beach

In the South-East of Spain, Alicante is one of the most beautiful seaside resorts in the Mediterranean. Enjoying a privileged location on the Costa Brava, it will seduce you with its beaches with fine sand, flooded with sun, and its sweetness of life.

Alicante is one of the most important cities of the Valencian Community. It thus reconciles the attractions of a large city and the beauty of a seaside city. At any time of the day, the beautiful beaches of Alicante are a must to relax, to enjoy the sun and the mild climate or to cool off in the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean. Not far away, the urban animation reminds us that the city is incredibly dynamic. Tradition and modernity come together smoothly.

In the neighbourhood of El Barrio, you will go back in time. Its picturesque streets will take you to the discovery of old buildings that have not lost their luster. The Ayuntamiento and the Cathedral of San Nicolas are some examples. History enthusiasts will explore the city by visiting its archaeological museum, the MARCQ, voted best European museum in 2004 and the medieval castle of Santa Barbara. Between two visits, it is always nice to enjoy the sea air by strolling along the Explanada de Espana.
