Enjoy a tour getting to know this bustling, elegant and cosmopolitan city.

Visit the Castle of Santa Barbara, one of the largest mediaeval fortresses in Europe, set high on the Benacantil Hill dominating the city and where,apart from the interest of the  historical aspect, there are stupendous views over the city and the coastline.

Enjoy a guided stroll through the charming “Old Quarter” nestling at the foot of the imposing castle. Visit the 18th century baroque Town Hall and the Cathedral Church of Saint Nicholas with its austere renaissance façade belying the magnificent 17th century nave and the lovely 15th century cloister contained within.

On the beautiful palm lined Esplanade of Spain taste the delicious local speciality first introduced to Alicante by the Moors – “horchata”, the sweetened milk of crushed tiger nuts. (Optional).

Notes

Town Hall is closed on Sundays.  For the two calls which fall on these days  the time which would have been spent in the museum or Town Hall can be used for slightly more leisurely visits to the other venues and a bit more shopping time.
