    It is not hard to understand why artists are attracted to the beautiful light and colours of the village.
    As you walk down the narrow alleys look out for little bits of decoration amongst the shops and galleries

    We were staying in Javea when we visited Altea and it is a very pleasant day out from there.

    We have only been during in the month of March and have never been there at the time of UK school holidays so the number of tourists has been few.
    .
    We noticed changes taking place on subsequent visits but were surprised when, about 8 years after that first visit, we took some relatives who were staying with us in Javea
    and they commented that they thought it "pose-y and touristy".

    Friends tell me that the crowds of visitors during high season can sometimes result in a crocodile-file through the village.
    So if you can - visit out of season - or get there very early before the coaches arrive.

    It is an enjoyable day out - plenty of restaurants ( some very expensive looking ones last time we were there) We preferred to eat lunch out side at a cafe in the corner of the Church Square - simple meals -salads, tortilla and ptzzas.
    Churches to visit and shops and art galleries to browse in.
