A venue housing an element of the very essence of Spain: bullfighting. This grand, circular structure in the heart of Benidorm is little by little re-gaining its level of activity with such leading figures from the bullfighting world as "El Cordobés" and "El Fandi".
Altea, with the Mediterranean Sea alongside, boasts a delightful new promenade running the length of the coastline as far as the fishing port.
This is one of the most imposing and important landmarks of the bohemian town of Altea.
Serra Gelada, one of the most distinctive of the coastal uplands in the Valencia region, is to be found between the bays of Altea and Benidorm.
Today's Altea is one of the key cultural centres of the Valencia Region. And the "Palau de Altea" is the flagship of this picturesque town.
Peaceful, narrow alleyways, whitewashed houses which in days gone by were protected by a solid city wall, an imposing church with its distinctive blue domes and impressive views of the coastline, revealing in the distance the Peñón de Ifach in Calpe.
The town of Calpe has a long-standing tradition of fishing and watersports, above all sailing. A pleasant walk down by the shoreline begins on the busy "Infanta Elena Promenade", stretching some two kilometres, running past Playa Arenal-Bol beach as far as the beautiful fishing port.
This beautiful mountain is just behind Calpe and rises 587 metres above sea level. Most of Oltá is covered with pine trees and other trees typically found in the region; walking along its footpaths leads you through natural surroundings and when you reach the top you get spectacular views of Calpe's Peñón de Ifach rock.
Every day at around five in the afternoon close by the fishing port of Calpe numerous tourists are attracted by the bustle of the fish auction, when the ships return as the sun goes down.
A curious sight, and an important natural setting which has existed since the Roman era, and which provides refuge for a wide range of migrating birdlife.
