Alicante

Alicante, the bustling capital of the Costa Blanca, fuses tradition with modernity in its over-all ambience and feel. A walk through the city guarantees a trek down memory lane, with its preservation of historical landmarks and architectural heritage. The traveller shuffles through time with the area’s Moros and Christianos fiestas (festivals), which prove to be must-see spectacles in this area, as well as many shopping destinations, for a little take-home of the whole Alicante experience.

Today, the province has indeed become a major travel destination for European tourists. A wide choice of accommodation, a great climate, and fantastic cuisine make for a worthy trip to the eastern coast of Spain. Gastronomists will delight in its abundance of oils, fruits, vegetables, seafood and rice dishes—all key ingredients in cooking up the Mediterranean diet—considered the healthiest diet in the world. The sweet-toothed traveller need not fret as the province is also known for its sweets, particularly the turrón. This treat is made of almonds and honey, and is notably Arabic culture’s contribution to Alicante’s cookbooks. As with its food, the province’s art and architecture were also influenced by the Arab culture. For nine centuries in 714 A.D., Muslims colonised the area, inevitably leaving their indelible mark on Alicante’s rich history.

Presently with a population of 300,000, Alicante boasts a rustic, homey vibe with a dash of cosmopolitan modernism that has become its signature throughout the years. Be it an evening walk to its numerous Italian ice cream parlours, partying nonstop in its discos or sun-bathing in the temperate coolness of its winter, Alicante promises a real feast for the senses.
