Alicante Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Alicante has always been renowned for the quality of its light. The Greeks called it Akra Leuka (white citadel), and the Romans Lucentum (city of light). This welcoming, typically Mediterranean city is a pleasant mix of provincial calm and the hustle and bustle associated with a busy tourist resort. The historic quarter and 10C castle of Santa Bárbara combine with the port and beach to create a harmonious atmosphere with a distinctly maritime feel.
