Alicante

Alicante sunset

Romantic, lively and unmistakably Spanish

Nightlife is, as expected, lively - but the city boasts a romantic charm you cannot find anywhere else. The most popular attraction for your Alicante travel guide would be the Castle of Santa Barbara. Outdoor recreation is available in the city as well, but it’s best enjoyed in the neighborhood villages. For instance, the Candelabra Cave, 24 km north of Alicante, boasts one of the highest vaults of Spain. In June, don’t miss “Las Hogueras de San Juan,” the most important festival in the city.
