Studying Abroad

by lilkristierose

I'm studying abroad in Spain this fall but am having a hard time between Alicante and Barcelona. At first I was set on going to Alicante, but that's hard to justify when Barcelona would make a better home base for trips into Europe. What else should I be looking at in making my decision? What does Alicante have that Barcelona doesn't?

Without doubting... Barcelona is a wonderful city with thousand of things to do. Alicante is nice as well, but you can't compare, they are completely different, Barcelona is the most cosmopolitan city of Spain

Hi.

Just some thoughts.

Actually you can find lots of good deals from Murcia/Alicante to other parts of Europe too; specially to Germany and Scandinavia.

Alicante has a nice weather and lots of history; the traces of the 700 year legacy of the Muslim conquest are the highest there, I think.

Hello
North Costa Blanca is very beautiful. If you stay in Alicante, you can drive North and see stunning scenery and towns such as Denia, Oliva, Javea, Altea, Moraira. All worth visiting. This area has beautiful valleys and mountains and an amazing rugged coastline. So much to see and do in this area. Fiestas etc.

If you look for a place to stay, Alicante is a good place but Barcelona is more cosmopolitan and has a great cultural offer. The climate is a bit better in Alicante, and the city is smaller, then more easy to move, meet people, etc. Also the province is wonderful, you sill find nice beaches, but also the mountains are very near and there are very beautiful villages.
But if you look for a base to travel abroad, you will have more flights from Barcelona airport. Alicante airport is ok for London, Pisa, Paris, Dusseldorf, Brussels and some more places (check webs of Iberia, Spanair, Ryanair etc) but very often we have to fly to Madrid or Barcelona to take another flight to other European cities.
If you will study here, bear also in mind the language. In Barcelona, both Spanish and Catalonian are spoken, but I think that lectures are mostly in Catalonian.

Travel Tips for Alicante

Museo Municipal Casa de la...

by fga

Museo Municipal Casa de la Asegurada (Municipal Museum 'Casa de la Asegurada' ) The building called La Asegurada was constructed in the 1 7th century and has had a multitude of uses and inhabitants throughout its history: municipal granary, prison, artillery storehouse, school of commerce, and was once even a provisional city hall. Today it houses a 20th Century Art Collection donated to the city in 1976 by the artist Eusebio Sempere. The nucleus of the collection is composed of works by major artists belonging to the Spanish generation of the fifties: Alfaro, Canogar, Chillida, Mompó, Saura, Tàpies, Zobel and Viola, and also includes a few predecessors of avant-garde art such as Gris, Miró, Picasso, etc.
Museo Arqueológico Provincial (Provincial Archeological Museum) This is located within the Palace of the Provincial Council and has such a large collection of archeological remains that only a selection of the most significant pieces are actually on display for the public. Of note are the dowries from the Bronze Age, the collection of Iberian and Roman ceramics and the Roman statues and epigraphy. There is also a valuable collection of popular ceramics from the 1 6th to the 1 9th centuries.
Museo de las Hogueras (Museum of the Bonfires) This museum is located inside the Santa Bárbara castle and contains effigies saved from the flames of the popular Las Hogueras festivities of Alicante.
Castillo de Santa Bárbara (Santa Bárbara Castle) This is the most emblematic construction in the city, located on the summit of mount Benacantil at 166m above the nearby sea. Archeological findings seem to indicate that this was a site of an Iberian hill fort. Today the majority of the castle dates from the 16th century. Of note are the Torre del Homenaje (keep), the Baluarte de los Ingleses (the Englishmen's bastion), la Capilla de Santa Bárbara, el Salón de Felipe II and others. The ascent can be made either by car or via a lift going up from the Postiguet beach. Visiting is a must, because the bastions provide a splendid panorama of the city and the coast. From here you will see the island of Tabarca, located off the coast from Cape Aljub near Santa Pola.
Iglesia de Santa Maria (Church of St. Mary) This 16th-century church was built on the site of an ancient Arab mosque. It has a gothic interior, and baroque high altar and doorway.
Concatedral de San Nicolás de Bari (Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas of Bari) Finished in 1662, this church in renaissance style with baroque elements in the altar and communion chapel is considered as one of the best examples of Spain's high baroque. Of special interest is the cloister, adorned with grilles and wooden doors.
Ayuntamiento (City Hall) A fine example of baroque civil architecture finished in 1760. On the first step of the stairway on the first floor is a small metal disc indicating sea level, used as a reference point for measuring height above sea level for all other points in Spain.
Monasterio de la Santa Faz (Monastery of the Holy Face) Located in the village district of the same name eight kilometres north of the City along the Alicante-Valencia route, this church was terminated in 1766 in renaissance style, with a baroque doorway. In a side-chapel of the church there is a reliquary containing one of the folds of linen used by Veronica to wipe Christ's brow during the Calvary. This relic was brought from Rome in the 1 5th century. Abutting onto the building is a fortified tower from the 16th century.
Castillo de San Fernando (Castle of St. Ferdinand) This is located on the Tossal hilltop, and is now completely dismantled, although it is true to say that this fortress was never terminated, as it was begun just before the French invasion. The spacious platform it now offers is used for sports and leisure activities.
Palacio Gravina (Gravina Palace) Constructed in the 18th century, this building now contains the provincial Archives, governed by the provincial Council. Exhibitions and cultural activites are often staged here.
Isla de Tabarca (Island of Tabarca) This island is in fact a natural monument, and is the only inhabited island in the land of Valencia, an erstwhile refuge of pirates and corsairs, now pertaining to the municipality of Alicante. It is eleven nautical miles from Alicante and three from Santa Pola. The waters around the island are now listed as a Marine Reserve. The island has an important set of fortifications (walls, bastion and doorways), an 18th century church and the castle of San José. Tabarca was declared a Historical-Artistic Monument in 1964.

Cab is not too expensive, if you are not planing to go very far , you can walk the whole main strip in about 2hrs max!!Plus it keeps you healthy and you take in all that fresh air!
There are buses around though aswell.

Critical Mass

by BlackTshirt

Or Masa Crítica, as it's called here. Meet up with your bicycle around the fountain in front of the Plaza de Toros on the last Saturday of each month and bring your folding bicycle if you have one, or pick one up cheap in Alicante while you're here. The ride leaves at 12:00 noon, and tours the city on bike. If you've never been on one of these rides, the idea is that when there are enough bicycles on the street, it becomes alot safer for cyclists. It's a reinforcement to drivers that there are cyclists on the road and they are traffic and have equal rights. And for the cyclists, it's a great time with a friendly atmosphere.

Theater; Teatro principal de Alicante

by Christina1881

The main theater in Alicante (teatro principal de Alicante) was build from 1846 to 1847, and was opened on the 25th of September 1847, the architect of the project was Emilio Jover Perrón.
At the theater it is possible to see different shows, theater etc., the theater holds concerts, musicals, lyric, comedians and much more. Most are held in Spanish, but I have put up this trip advice because maybe a visitor could be interested in going to an musical or a concert.
The webpage stated below update the acts held ongoing, so chek it out.

by lirk

At the beginning yuo face the longest fall, which is not excessively high, then a cave appear, where you'll find the nest of the Queen of Snakes.

Once you have crossed the cave, you start the climb for the second fall, but this time your position willb be changed... I mean, the sarcophagus turn, so your'll fall backwards!!!

The fall is a little short but intense, you'll enjoy it... I promise. Then you continue your trip in this position, but only for a while, until you arrive to next platform, once there you recover your original position and end the trip, but first you go through a cave with paintings of the past Pharoas and all that stuff about Ancient Egypt. Then you end the ride.
