History, beach and tapas
The second city of the Costa Blanca has about 330,000 inhabitants and is therefore smaller than Valencia. It has a beautiful old city center consisting of 2 different neighborhoods: "Casco Antiguo" and "El Barrio", the last of which is located against Mount Benacantil.
On this mountain of over 160 meters, you can visit the Santa Bárbara castle, from where you have a beautiful view of the city. Since the city itself is right on the sea, the beach is nice and close. With more than 900 meters of sandy beach it is great to relax. Next to the beach is a beautiful, wide boulevard with cozy terraces and stalls.
At the end of the afternoon, enjoy some tapas in one of the many bars.
