Explore the old city center of Alicante on the Mediterranean coast


World famous for its lively Bonfires of San Juan festival, Alicante is an enchanting and historic Mediterranean port city that is best explored with a private guide.

We will start the tour, taking the lift up to Saint Barbara's Castle, located on the strategic Benacantil mountain overlooking the city and sip some typical Sangria while you enjoy superb views of the bay.

For continuing with the tour we will go down walking for appearing in Sta Cruz neighbordhood in the Old Town where you will discover quiet and typical Mediterranean neighborhoods of colorful buildings and a typical way of life.

Go to the Co-cathedral of St. Nicholas of Bari, built on the remains of a mosque in the 17th century. Admire the Baroque façade of the Town Hall, and the modernist Casa Carbonell, one of the city's most striking buildings.

The Spanish boulevard or esplanade is also the place to be dazzled by more than 6 million ceramic tiles.
