Alicante Spain: Santa Barbara CastleSanta Barbara Castle

This is one of the Europe’s biggest medieval fortresses. It is located on the peak and hillside of the Benacantil Mountain, so, from its privileged position, you can see the entire Bay of Alicante. It has three areas, differentiated by the stages in its construction, from the 11th to the 18th century. You can enter the castle either by a pine-tree lined road or using the lifts that have been dug into the mountain. You can get on the lifts at the end of the tunnel, opposite the Postiguet Beach.

Alicante SpainCathedral of San Nicolás

It was built throughout most of the 17th century over the remains of an old mosque, although it also preserves traces of a 15th century cloister. It is of late Renaissance style, and therefore, it is sober in its external aspect. Inside, the Cathedral is spaciously proportioned with a delicate dome; the altars of the patrons of Alicante, San Nicolás of Bari and the Virgin of Remedio are on the lower and upper sides of the presbytery. The cloister dates from the 15th century, and the baroque rear main fronts are outstanding. The baroque style comes to its highest splendour in the Communion Chapel, dating from the 18th century, as well as in the organ.

La Asegurada Museum

This is the town's oldest preserved civil building. It was built in 1685 by the Municipal Council as a corn storehouse. However, throughout its life, it has been used for a variety of purposes: it became the Town Hall headquarters while the present one was under construction; it has been a prison and a storehouse for artillery during the Peninsula War, a secondary school, a business school…

One the most important contemporary art collections was donated by an important sculptor from Alicante.
