We had a lovely visit to this town on the coast of Alicante on a very sunny day, with a walk through the old town which was amazing with its quiet, narrow streets, whitewashed houses, breathtaking views of the coast and in the distance the rock of Ifach. There is a beautiful and very well maintained church with blue domes like almost every other church in the area of Alicante. An extraordinary experience.
The church of San Roque, to the side of City Hall, is at the start of a street that was unknown to me, but I've come to realise is the liveliest in Denia, full of restaurants and bars. The terraces are full even in winter, because the weather is always mild, and lots of foreigners live here.
Quite a few streets lead away from the Plaza de la Iglesia. The most special, surely, is Calle Mayor. It is a very short street. But why would you want more? If you go down a few stairs you'll come across, in a few meters, some of the best restaurants in the area, with a few unique craft stores and some impressive balconies.
This is a typical street that, whenever you pass through Altea, you will want to return. Because it has something special. Because it leaves a mark on you. It is one of those places that you'll love at first sight. And what can you do against those odds?
This street is in the old town of Alcoy and has old buildings with great architectural beauty. During the Moors and Christians some acts pass through this street and therefore it is decorated for that purpose. This street also has most of the banks, savings banks, shops and offices throughout the State.
The streets of the city center of Denia quite surprised me. I was expecting something different, but they have a very distinctive touch. Maybe it's the colour of the houses, in shades of yellow and ochre. Maybe it's the special lighting of the lamps by night. The truth is that going for a walk through the centre of Denia at night, on your way to have a drink, is remarkable. There's more to this town than the beach.
Popularly known as “La Calle del Coño,” this street in Benidorm crosses the historic neighborhood and is full of bars, shops, restaurants, and, above all, people.
It’s a meeting place for people from the area who come to downtown Benidorm to have fun, eat out, and chat.
There’s an incredible variety of restaurants and cafes and it’s full 24 hours a day.
Around the ancient Church-Fortress of the now demolished San Pedro, and along the street were constructed Puríssima stately homes for the important families of Benissa , especially in the 18th century. Among the most interesting of these, we can see the home of Andrew and Pere Bigot, now converted into the University of Alicante 'en la Marina Alta' This House was built between the late 18th and early 19th centuries and is one of the most representative examples of the buildings in the district of Marina and one of the most interesting examples of civil architecture from these centuries around Valencia.
El callejón de los Gatos (Cat’s Alley) is a pedestrian-only street in downtown Benidorm that stretches from the Playa de Levante to the church and the famous viewpoint where you can see both of the city’s beaches. It’s full of bars, very narrow, and features many archways which give it an Andalusian look.
