Spain: Alicante

Alicante, Spain

Located along the eastern coast in the Costa Blanca region, Alicante is one of Spain's oldest cities, with a history dating back more than 3,000 years. The old town is where you will find most of the city's historic monuments, but don't miss the Santa Barbara Castle, one of Spain's biggest medieval fortresses, perched high above the city on Mount Benacantil.
