Alicante city has a population of over 300,000 and combines both classic and modern societies, living in harmony. It offers business and pleasure, entertainment and education. The history of Alicante goes back to prehistoric times with remains being found here from the third century before Christ. Today,
Alicante is a first rate tourist centre thanks to its splendid beaches, excellent climate and well known facilities. Alicante is one of the most visited cities on the Costa Blanca.Besides its golden beaches and impressive Paseo Maritimo, Alicante has a wealth of history to offer the visitor and has an impressive mountain-top castle. The city also has a range of 18th century manor houses, all worthy of a visit.
We personally found Alicante a city in two parts.
The seafront was quite attractive yet one street in and the city had a scruffy appearance. Some of the quieter back streets should be avoided at night. Having such a diverse history, there's no wonder that Alicante has so many historic buildings. Among its churches is the Iglesia de Santa Maria, which is the oldest church in the city and was built between the 14th and 16th centuries.
It was once the main mosque during Moorish times. Its front comprises of two solid looking towers and wonderful Baroque stonework. The church houses several important works of art. Other places of interest is the Cathedral de San Nicolas and the Monastery de la Santa Faz.
