Free Walking Tour of Alicante

We'll meet at Alicante Town Hall Square at 11 am. There we'll start a free tour of the historic city.

We'll look at the baroque façade of this beautiful 16th century building and then continue walking along the Explanada de España, one of the busiest streets in the city. Did you know that it was built on a dyke?

The tour will continue to the central square Portal de Elche and the Gabriel Miró square, named after one of the town's illustrious sons. Next, we'll go into San Francisco street, where curious figures of mushrooms and rayuelas (small rays) are erected.

Our next stop will be in front of the Teatro Principal, a neoclassical building commissioned by two families, two aristocrats and several merchants in the mid-19th century. We'll also talk about one of Alicante's most important festivities in the Fogueres Museum.

Then we'll see the co-cathedral of San Nicolás de Bari, built on the site of a former mosque, and the convent of the Precious Blood of Christ. We'll visit other places of interest such as the Ferrisa Gate and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Alicante.

Finally, we'll contemplate the Basilica of Santa Maria, the oldest temple in the city, built in Valencian Gothic style. This is the end of the free tour at 1 pm.
