There's lots to see and do in Alicante, where do you start?.
There are sweeping views over the city from the ramparts of this large 16th-century castle, which houses a museum recounting the history of the city and contains a couple of chambers with temporary exhibitions. It’s a sweaty walk up the hill to the castle, but there’s a lift that rises through the bowels of the mountain to the summit. To return, it’s a pleasant stroll down through Parque de la Ereta.

Eating out in Alicante is quite the treat
Excellent in every way, this plush corner spot sports deliberately OTT decor that changes biannually but is always interesting. Grab a table or squeeze up at the bar to enjoy some of this part of Spain’s finest produce. Plump Dénia prawns, excellent tuna, fresh fish, mouthwatering ham; it’s a feast for the palate. Excellent wines are available by the glass. It’s not cheap but the quality is sky-high. The atmosphere is smart but relaxed with a DJ responding to the mood as plates of seafood make way for gin and tonics in the mid-afternoon and later at night.
