Alicante is the capital of the province of the same name in the autonomous region of Valencia. The city looks back on 3,000 years of history. Different cultures have left their mark here. A variety of parks and promenades invite you to linger and stroll. Culture lovers will also get their money's worth in the "City of Light". Whether theater, museums, galleries - the offer is varied and varied. The sandy beaches are one of the main attractions of the city and make every holidaymaker's heart beat faster. The port of Alicante (ferry service from Algeria) with its restaurants, bars and discos is a popular entertainment district. "La Explanada de España" runs parallel to Paseo Conde Vallellano, which runs right along the harbor, an avenue of palm trees one kilometer in length with a wave-shaped mosaic floor, on which weekly concerts take place.
