Alicante Spain Tourist Information and Vacation Guide
For those that are physically fit and seeking a little adventure, consider hiking to the summit of Mount Benacantil.
There are a couple of main trails that meander up from the city to the castle.
The most interesting trail leaves from the colorful Barrio Santa Cruz district of Alicante (the "Old Town"). It starts at the Water Museum, passes through Ereta Park (Parque de la Ereta) and runs up the north side of the mountain.
