Altea, one of the Mediterranean’s leading spots.
As an icon of the Costa Blanca, Altea is the perfect place to enjoy the sun and beaches, but it also has a rich cultural life and a certain bohemian feel to it. In the old town of Altea, you can find beautiful whitewashed Mediterranean houses, and in the summer there are nice markets set up on the square outside the famous Virgen del Consuelo church . The Palau Altea arts centre offers an interesting and varied cultural programme with concerts and theatre.
Water sports, golf, walking on the Bernia mountains and high-class gastronomy are just a few reasons to visit this “white-washed ” town.
In August, on the night of San Lorenzo, the sky above Altea is lit up by the most spectacular fireworks , which is called the Castell de L’Olla.
