Alcoy, city located within the Province of Alicante was founded in the XIIIth century, but it was in the XIX century during the industrial revolution when it flourished.

we will start our tour visiting Saint George's church. Where I will introduce the history, tradition and festivity of the Moors and Christians. It is a Historicist neo-Romanesque building, richly decorated in Neo-Byzantine style. Through the main altar our expert guide we will involve you into the legend of Saint George.

Then we will visit one of Santiago Calatrava's design: Llotja de Saint George. Singular construction that simulates the skeleton of a dragon.
