Alicante is a nice harbour city and one of Spains fast growing cities. It offer you some possibilities in every direction. For example the weekly markets close to the Bull fighting arena. You get fresh vegetables and fruits there, coming from the farmers around Alicante. Was also interesting to walk through tha marekt and watch the people yelling and selling.
An intersting site is the fort over the city, the 'Castillo de Santa Barbara'.
It's also very relaxing, if you visit the promenade 'Esplanada de Espana'. It consists out of millions of marble stones and its the point where the people got o in the evening. You can also often listen concerts there.
If you just want to relax, go to one of the two parks, the 'El Palmeral' or 'La Ereta'.
The city is worth a visit if you are around.
