Alicante in 4 days
The first stop is the historic centre of El Barrio. This neighborhood was developed around Santa Bárbara Castle, and it is an iconic medieval monument in the city, placed on the top of Mount Benacantil, and famous for its exhibitions on the history of the place and its dramatised tours. El Barrio is known for its narrow and steep streets flanked by remains of the medieval wall and by the polychromatic facades of its houses with lattices covered with flowers. Another places not to be missed are the Cathedral of San Nicolás, the hermitage of San Roque and the hermitage of Santa Cruz.
To finish the day, let yourself get carried away by the lively nightlife of the bars, restaurants and pubs with their jazz concerts.
The marine environment around El Puerto, next to the coast, is spectacular. Its prestigious restaurants, the typical seafood taverns, bingo, countless shops, its promenades or the aquarium could be some of the plans for this day. In addition, street art festivals are held in summer.
For shoppers there is a shopping paradise, Gran Vía. This huge shopping center has more than 100 shops, restaurants, cinemas and different leisure activities ideal to spend a whole day.
There is nothing like ending the visit with a relaxing day at the beach. Alicante can boast of having some of the best beaches in Europe, one of them in the very center of the city, Postiguet beach or the tourist beach of San Juan.
