Top attractions in Alicante
Alicante is one of Europe's top beach break destinations. Although the luxurious beaches and warm weather might be the main attraction, the city is filled with history, culture and fun activities. The medieval fortress on the top of Mount Benacantil, the Santa Barbara Castle, is a must see if you're passionate about history. The archaeological museum is another amazing attraction and if you're on a family vacation, we recommend a visit to the Terra Mitica theme park. Located near Alicante, it is by far one of the best and most popular parks in Europe. If you need a little break from the beach, walk down the winding lanes of the old town and stop at one of the traditional restaurants, or go shopping in the city's chic marina.
Food and Fondillón
A visit to Alicante would not be complete without trying a few of the traditional and locally grown rice dishes. Try the famous paella or be adventurous and order arroz caldoso or arroz al horno. Alicante is famous for its sweet dessert wines and in particular a wine called Fondillón; a great end to your traditional meal. Art lovers should not miss a visit to the Museo de la Asegurada, a modern art museum with works by some of the great Spanish artists such as Salvador Dalí and Picasso. To see the traditional side of Alicante, take a stroll through the old town. It has charming historic buildings, and whitewashed houses line the narrow streets. You might wander past the town hall, the cathedral, an old convent, and several art museums.
