Alicante Holidays Overview

 

Alicante is the second largest city in Valencia, and with a mild climate, beautiful sandy beaches, lively night life, and renovated old town, it is the perfect holiday destination. Alicante, named Lucentum, meaning ‘City of Light’ by the Romans is a typical Spanish town, with wide esplanades and sea front promenades filed with terraced cafes.
 
Archaeological remains found near Alicante show that the earliest settlers in the area arrived in the third millennium BC. The Romans founded the first town in the fourth century BC. This was later conquered by the Moors, who built the old town area on the slopes of Mount Benacantil. Alicante was incorporated into Valencia in the thirteenth century after being reconquered by the Christians and it was granted city status in the fifteenth century.

Held at the end of June, this is the most important festival in Alicante and has been declared of International Tourist Interest.

The festival also includes a spectacular firework and firecracker competition, processions, parades and floral tributes to the Virgen del Remedio.

The Santa Faz Festival
 
Held on the second Thursday after Easter, this popular festival includes a traditional pilgrimage known as La Peregrina, the second largest pilgrimage held in Spain today. Thousands of people walk the five miles from Alicante to the Fanta Faz monastery where the relics of the saint are housed. In the Santa Faz monastery there is also a cloth that Veronica supposedly used to dry the face of Christ on the Way of the Cross.
