To warm up for Christmas, I decided to head down to southern Europe and see a bit of Spain. Aside from a trip to Barcelona Catalonia over 15 years ago, I have never really had the chance to explore Spain, and so I was thrilled and excited about this visit. Alicante was the last stop before heading back.

Alicante is a relatively small and sleepy town, and you can see most of what’s interesting within a day or two around the central area. But, it does have a couple of things going for it that make it rather special. The Santa Bárbara Castle up on the hill offers breath-taking panoramic views of the coastline, and down below – even if it’s not as hot as in the summer – there are some nice city beaches.

 

To give you a taste of things, here are my Visions of Alicante…
