Trips to Alicante

Alicante travel

The city of Alicante is the capital of a province of the same name. It is one of the most popular tourist locations in Spain and has a vintage aura surrounding it, with old, mysterious architecture now comprising a contemporary twist. The city boasts a castle atop Mount Benacantil named Santa Bárbara Castle, which is open to the public. Another interesting place is the Archaeological Museum of Alicante which exhibits artwork from 100,000 years ago to the early 20th century. Alicante has been under a lot of religious and political influence so you'll find many castles, cathedrals, and monasteries here, all prime examples of impressive architecture.

A trip to Alicante might feel like a trip to the time of knights and warriors due to defence towers, castles and old, tall structures that create a historic air. For those into the old architecture of Muslim or Monastic influence, and for those into European history, Alicante will be satisfaction for the soul. The city holds several festivals throughout the year. Most importantly the Bonfires of Saint John followed by seven nights of firework competitions during the week after the summer solstice.
