Description:An historical city and major port of Spain. Sights include Santa Barbara castle, Santa María Church, San Nicholas de Bari Co-Cathedral, the Santa Faz Monastery, the remains of the Iberian settlement on Tossal de Manises and the Expalanda- a tree-lined, marbled promenade.

Several beaches on city outskirts. San Juan de Alicante beach to east of city is over 5 miles long. There are 5 more beaches in the area and all are Blue Flag (clean and high standard).

Traffic congestion, noise and pollution however a problem, along with rising crime rate. The old quarter (known as Santa Cruz) has narrow streets which can be dangerous as well as picturesque.

Residential areas surround the city e.g. Carolinas to the north-east, and Albufereta, Dos Bahias and Nuevo Alicante to the east. Property in the city centre is more expensive than on the outskirts so these residential areas can prove more value for money.  There is an excellent transport system that supports the city so getting around will never be a problem.  Road connections have improved significantly over the last 5 years and will continue to do so.
