This ancient castle can be seen to the right from the apt terrace. That’s how close it is from the apt. It’s romantic (can also go at night), some guests have proposed there! But it’s also fun for the entire family to tour and walk around enjoying the magnificent sea and city views from atop!
A classic to tick off the list when visiting. The foundation that created the city of Alicante is Castle Santa Barbara with a rich history and great views. We recommend going up late afternoon before sunset with the elevator that takes you from the bottom to the top, then there is a nice walk…
“The archeological museum of Alicante is just a few blocks from the apt. And in the area past the large roundabout going North is Al Campo a huge shopping mall and supermarket where you can find anything!”
“The Central Food Market is a great place to enjoy a lovely meal, and try the local produce. Also visit the very nice Japanese Restaurant Katana on the lower floor.”
“You can buy some souvenirs as well, books, newspaper, clothes, jewellery, etc..”
“Museo de Arte del Siglo XX - Museo de la Asegurada (Museum of XX century art) - is located in Plaza de Santa María.
