Lakes and Parks?

by HelenJM

Are there any lakes close to Alicante that are safe to swim in?

I'm also on the lookout for a park with grass to sit on?

Re: Lakes and Parks?

by DChis

No Idea on lakes im afraid,but if you want somewhere to sit enjoy sun and water i highly recommend Playa De San Juan, is a 20-30 min bus ride along coast from alicante and is an incredible beach. Should be pictures on net somewhere!

Re: Lakes and Parks?

There are some large reservoirs in the mountains, one above Villajoyosa and another in Guadalest. Not sure about swimming there, most Alicantinos either swim in a pool or the sea. Grassy parks, try Parque Morant, just north of the Gran Via near Los Angeles, the University of Alicante in San Vicente, or maybe the Palmera on the way out of town toward Ciudad del Luz or the Airport. A side note - you can take the tram to playa San Juan from the Central Market now as well as busses.

Alicante (FGV) Railway Station

by Pauldelabar

FGV stands for Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana. Which means, basicly, Valencia Railways.

Alicante is the terminus for the narrow gauge railway propper. However, the tram, (or Tranvia), runs further on down along the promenade to the harbour. This picture is of the original terminus station building and is adjacent to the sea front.

The air conditioned diesel trains run from here up through Benidorm right up to Denia.

A train trip to Benidorm takes about an hour but beware. Whilst Alicante's railway station is right on the sea front, Benidorm's is not. It's right at the top of a hill and about a 15 - 20 minute walk down to the sea front - and remember it's all uphill on the way back!

History:
The railway was originally built by a French company in 1914 to provide fresh produce to Alicante. The total track distance from Denia to Alicante is 93kM.

A walk on the front and down the back streets

by ranger49

We did not have time to do the "big tourist" visits like for example the castle of my namesake saint, so spent what time we had in a leisurely manner just strolling around the sea front and the hidden streets behind having coffee, and later lunch before taking our relatives to the airport with time to spare.
We were impressed by the laid back atmosphere and classical beauty of the 17th and 18th century buildings and I would love to go back for a longer visit - at low season.

The Marina

by barbskie

An area boasting countless of wealth docked here. So we gave a touch of luxury during our visit meandering down here and had a taste of a finer things in life. The modern El Puerto complex housed stylish bars and refined restaurants where we enjoyed some snacks and a cup coffee.

A Face in a Cloth

by gOdOtPm

Monastery of Santa Faz was created 5 km away from Alicante with alms provided by the people in commemoration of some prodigies ocurred in 1489. Built in the Barroque style, it displays a piramid-shaped dome. Kept inside the monastery, they say there is a relic brought from the Vatican in the 15th century which, as tradition has it, is actually a cloth used to dry Christ bloodied face and all during the stations of the Cross.

Every year, the second Thursday after Easter Sunday there's a pilgrimage from Alicante to Santa Faz. To know more, visit my Local Customs tip.

Open everyday, from 9.00 h to 12.30 h and from 17.00 h to 18.30 h
Sundays, only from 9.00 h to 12.30 h
FREE ENTRANCE

From June to December 2006, there is an art exhibition about Christian Religion and tickets cost 3€. They are valid to enter the three monuments that host the exhibition: San Nicolás, Santa María and Santa Faz.
