Alicante Maps and Orientation

(Alicante, Costa Blanca, Spain)

Located on the southern side of Spain's Valencian Community, Alicante is the capital city of the Alicante Province. A historic and busy port city, visitors choosing to base themselves within the Old Town will find that the majority of the attractions are within comfortable walking distance, although buses and trams are in good supply.

Running alongside the harbourfront, the Paseo Explanada de Espana is a popular and scenic promenade, being traffic-free and lined with mature palm trees. Many tourists holidaying in Alicante find that the Catedral de San Nicolás de Bar on the Plaza Abad Penalva is a useful reference point, being surrounded by the numerous narrow alleyways and streets that combine to make up the Old Quarter (El Barrio).
