A nice walk delimited by palm trees, which is normally very busy with its ice cream shops. From time to time they place a market with handmade products, original crafts and live music.

In the highest spot of the mountain, witnessing centuries of history, the castle of Santa Bárbara is a very famous monument of Alicante (it appears represented in the shield of the city), as well as the curious rocky formation at its feet.

El Barrio de Santa Cruz is one of the most typical neighborhoods of Alicante and not very known. When walking through its narrow and steep streets, between the colorful houses and the flowers adorning the facades, it seems that we move to another world, leaving behind the bustle of the city.

Visitors shouldn’t forget to peek the fantastic museums that the city offers. The MACA Contemporary Art Museum, located near the Town Hall; The museum of Fine Arts Gravina MUBAG, a highly recommended and free option, also near the Town hall; The Archaeological Museum of Alicante MARQ, with extraordinary exhibitions; The Exhibition Hall of the Fish Market, next to the west dock and located in a curious historicist building with magrebies elements, built in the early twentieth century, hosts numerous exhibitions; and the Museum of the City of Alicante MUSA which is located in the Castle of Santa Bárbara.
