Our walking tour of Alicante was excellent. We met Carolina mid morning and had a glorious walk up to Santa Barbara Castle. The walk up and down is very gradual. The castle is a must to see and Carolina's insight was very informative. The history is amazing. From there we walked down to the central market and stopped at a great restaurant for lunch. After lunch we continued to walk the central area... Carolina pointing out lots and lots of great restaurants and things to do. Great introduction to Alicante
