Flying to Alicante

The city of light

Mediterranean maritime climate

18 degrees

2 hours and 35 minutes

Initially named Lucentum in Roman times, Alicante is still the ‘City of Light’. This has little to do with the many city lights, but everything to do with the famously starry sky on clear nights.

Places to visit in Alicante

Admittedly, most people come for the beach. But a visit to the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Museum of Contemporary Art) is certainly worth the effort. The museum exhibits a delightful collection of 20th century art, including works by famous artists such as Joan Miró, Juan Gris and Pablo Picasso. The Castillo de Santa Bárbara (Castle of Saint Barbara) is another landmark to see. This castle sits at 166 metres above the city and therefore offers beautiful panoramic views of the surroundings. Roman ruins and medieval walls remind us of eras gone by. From monumental heritage to modern art to sprawling boulevards: Alicante is a city with different faces.

Discover Alicante

Spain's Costa Blanca needs little introduction: the beaches are beautiful, the climate always pleasant and the many cafés and restaurants offer local and international cuisine. Alicante caters to every type of tourist. You can choose from any number of restaurants that serve the catch of the day, often served with rice that can be flavoured in 100 different ways. Or enjoy a cool drink in a local pub, or a night out at one of the many hip clubs. For those who love the night life, Alicante is a city that never sleeps. But there's plenty to do during the day, too. Wander past the market stalls every Wednesday and scan the traditional ceramics, jewellery and clothes, as well as plenty of fresh fish, vegetables and fruit. Or head down to the city centre for the latest designer fashion.
