This historic town is within the province of Alicante and it administered by a municipality. The city located at a distance of about 50 Kms from Alicante and about 10 Kms from Benidorm is blessed with most beautiful weather. Actually this weather has made this small town a place of tourist attraction. The city has become most popular tourist spot since about 2 decades.

What are the places of tourist interest in Altea?

The city is blessed by the famous Alagar River. The city is also popular for its natural beauty and some of the historic buildings. Our lady of Solace church (La Mare de Déu del Consol), historic building of the Town Hall, shopping malls, and the irregular but beautifully laid out street of this small town are the places worth seeing.

The most imposing domes of the church with extravagant works of ceramic tiles and a lavish interior are the main features of this historic church. The area around the church is filled with parks which add to the aesthetic beauty of the church.

Not far away from this church are rows and rows of shops and malls where traditional works of arts and artifacts are sold at reasonable prices. The city Town Hall is located very near to the shopping area. The city is not far off from the most famous Mediterranean Sea. As a matter of fact the Altea Beach is one of the most preferred beaches of the Costa Blanca. The beach is so perfectly maintained that it has earned the status of Blue Flag. The beautiful nature around the beach encourages the tourist to make frequent visits to this beautiful city.

The beach is fully equipped with many water sport equipments and the beach has area specially reserved for children. The restaurants on the beach as well as those in the town are popular for their traditional food. From the tall buildings of the town one can see the most spectacular view of the beach and of the places surrounding the building. There are many islands around this small town most of which are of course uninhabited. The beaches have innumerable coves. The El Muscarat Mountain which is very close to the beach is another place of tourist interest.

During the month of November annual festivals are held which attract many people from many parts of Europe. Most spectacular procession is followed by traditional fireworks which are considered as an important event of the festival. The city is also known for its traditional Spanish wine.
