Bonfires are on the streets till 24/06. At midnight there are fireworks in the shape of a big palm tree ("la palmera") and the bonfires are burnt. The "barracas" and the music in the streets finish that night.
From 25 till 29, there are fireworks every midnight.
Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Alicante

Where cats play

by Toshioohsako

This is a town animals seem to enjoy because of it is calm and beautiful.

Photo no1: Who is this stranger? Japanese, Chinese or Korean - hard to tell. But who cares?

Photo no2: I sit down straight to welcome you. I cannot bow down like Japanese - my chin will immediately hit the ground.

Photo no3: I am itchy. I cannot wait for doing this. Excuse me, stranger!

Air - from the UK flights are...

by Kettleman

Air - from the UK flights are available from most airports as Alicante is the natural destination for Benidorm and the Costa.

I can recommend Monarch Airlines out of Luton (or London Luton to confuse tourists!) and their Gold Crown Service. Not as cheap as charter or Go! but you get a decent seat (not too cramped) and a meal onboard.
Walking, buses and trains! All straightforward.

Santa Bárbara Castle

by elssbkeppe

Perched on top of Mount Benacantil, at a height of 166 metres, stands one of Spain's largest mediaeval fortresses, providing great views of Alicante's perfect bay.

It has three different enclosures from three distinct periods:

The upper enclosure, "La Torreta", is where visitors will find the keep and the most ancient remains of the fortress, which mostly date from the 14th century. The mid-level enclosure is home to the most important buildings, which were built in the 16th century. These include:
the Salón Felipe II hall the Cuerpo de Guardia guardhouse the Patio de Armas parade ground the Baluarte de la Reina bastion. The lower enclosure dates back to the 18th century and is home to the Revellín del Bon Repós ravelin. Visitors can access the castle via a lift built within the rockface opposite El Postiguet beach. You can also reach the castle on foot or by car along the road on the north face of Mount Benacantil, which starts in Calle Vázquez de Mella street. On the sea-facing slope of Mount Benacantil is the La Ereta park, an attractive open-air space with a restaurant, cafeteria and exhibition hall. The park offers superb views of the city and its Old Quarter, which can be reached easily via the various entrances to the park.

Curiously, when viewed from El Postiguet beach, Mount Benacantil looks like a human face in profile which is known as "La Cara del Moro" or "The Moor's Face" and is one of the city's most emblematic images.

Sticks and Bones Reloaded

by gOdOtPm

The Archaeological Museum Of Alicante, MARQ revisits history in an original and educational manner. A former Military Hospital was reformed to hold a spectacular and modern museum that soon received the European Museum of the Year for the «originality and intelligent approach of its exhibits». Although it's terribly precise, the MARQ is as well entertaining and hosts both permanent and temporary exhibitions.

The permanent collection includes six rooms: prehistory, Iberic, Romanic, Islamic-medieval and modern ages. The building itself is worth a visit. It's pretty big and it's been reformed few years ago. Moreover, it's located in a quiet neighborhood near the castle where calm spots and tapas for good prices are easily found.

SEA PROMENADE

by Hosell

Another nice place to walk,is the Sea Promenade,is located just next to Explanada Park.If you like to watch people,boats,and nice ships,this is your place!!.Also walking here you'll feel the nice and refreshing sea breeze!!!

At the end of the promenade you will see very close, the Alicante's Bullring,if you never seen a bullfight before this is your chance to see it.
