Alicante is considered the "friendliest" Spanish resort. It is equally comfortable for fans of leisurely lying on the beach and fans of rich excursions. There are many places in Alicante you will want to put your swimsuit aside for. The main symbol of the city that should definitely be included in your excursion route is the Santa Barbara basilica. Its observation deck offers a magical view of the city. Painting fans should definitely visit a contemporary art museum with works by Picasso and Dali or go on an excursion to La Asegurada with a English-speaking guide. 1001guide advises hikers to walk along the Explanada de España lined with millions of mosaic pieces.
