Alicante


Alicante is the second largest city in the province of Valencia. It is graced by some of the best beaches in Spain and has some fine watersports venues such as Albufereta beach and Almadraba beach, one of the very best beaches is at Playa de San Juan.

There are a number of carnivals and religious festivals throughout the year. The Spanish people love their fiestas which they enjoy with much vigour and gusto, some of the best known fiestas include the Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians), held in late April, the Hogueras de Sant Joan (celebration of the bonfires), the Misteri D'Elx (Mystery of Elche) held in August and the annual carnival held in the days leading up to Ash Wednesday.

As a city with a rich and ancient history there are of course plenty of sites of historical interest to visit, these include the Castle of Santa Barbara (situated on Mount Benacantil) one of the biggest medieval fortresses in Europe, the Iglesia de Santa Maria - the oldest church in Alicante, and the Museo Archaeologico - the citie's famous archaeological museum.

For those with shopping on their minds there is also a modern shopping area which includes the well known Corte Inglés department store.

If you get time and fancy something a little different why not take a trip on the lemon train between Alicante and Denia, there is some fantastic scenery to enjoy along the way. The "Lemon Express" has to negotiate some very rugged countryside and passes through mountain tunnels and over bridges.
