When to go
Curated for you
A scorched landscape with lime-rich soil lined with rows of gnarly vines weighed down by heavy bunches of juicy dark-purple grapes – does that sound familiar? You will certainly enjoy a visit to the vineyards, followed by a tour of the wine cellar and a wine tasting. Alicante offers a ready-made wine route: the Ruta del Vino.
ARTS & CULTURE
The old city of Alicante is wedged between the beach and the castle. Take a step back in time. Stroll through the charming winding alleys and steps along whitewashed houses with wrought-iron balconies decorated with flowering geraniums. Or visit a museum, a church or a monastery. Then grab a patio table under a palm tree for a refreshing glass of horchata, the local almond drink. An overview of the highlights of Santa Cruz.
