Sightseeing in Alicante City- the Marina, the Castle, the Parks, the Promenades and more....

Alicante Marina

With its many green areas, famous promenades and the beautiful marina where you have a spectacular view of the Santa Barbara Castle, the city has so much to see and enjoy.

Why not try the tourist bus?

Known as the Turibus, this specially equipped bus tours the city from 10am until 2pm and then from 5pm until 7pm and can carry upto 80 passengers. A ticket costs only €8 (€5 for kids and pensioners) and is valid all day so you can hop on and off as many times as you like.

There are stops at all the popular tourist sites; Plaza del Mar, Archaeological Museum, Sta Barbabra Castle, Central Market, Luceros, Renfe Station, Maisonnave (the shopping area), the Theatre and the Rambla. Carrying maps and pamphlets about Alicante's history and sites, the bus also has a recorded guided tour in 3 languages, so we all know just where we are!

Santa Barbara Castle
You can't fail to notice this impressive castle situated on an outcrop over looking Alicante City. It's one of the largest medieval fortresses in Europe.

Parks and Plazas Green areas literally pop up all over the city of Alicante! With a choice of gardens, parks, plazas or promenades, you will never be at a loss for cool, shady areas to sit and people watch.

Strolling along the Prom
The heart and soul of Alicante is the grand La Explanada de España. Stretching around the marina, this elegant boulevard with its red, black and cream tiles, all 6.6 million of them, refuses to be ignored.

Museums and Art Alicante City is full of all kinds of museums and art galleries, from the drier subjects of archaeology to the more fun ones like bullfighting and from classical paintings through to Contemporary.

Interesting Buildings Alicante City has a wonderful heritage that can be experienced through many of its building and monuments. We have chosen some of the key sights to see and compiled a short tour that is easily achievable in a morning or afternoon.

A Potted History of Alicante
Long before Alicante’s El Altet airport was opened as a gateway for millions of foreign invaders, the area was a magnet for traders and conquerors.
