  • Súper beautiful. It makes Alicante the best Spanish city we have visited so far. Do your strolling around and after sunset. It reminds me of Nerja ( a Spanish town in the south) and Casablanca  more »
  • A plaque on this charming esplanade pays homage to the city official whose idea it was. It makes for a very nice place for a stoll and is deservedly now a city icon  more »
