Welcome to one of Spain’s main holiday destinations. A dynamic city, Alicante is a province which combines in its unique way the most traditional and the most cosmopolitan, where you will find bustling cities rubbing shoulders with small fishing villages (and their fantastic fish auctions!), cliff-bordered coasts, quiet beaches, unforgettable islands – a true contrast in the best sense.
- Don’t miss the opportunity to climb up to the Santa Barbara fortress and enjoy the most wonderful views of the city and coast.
- Visit the old part of town, and discover the city´s rich cultural history.
- If you like the beautiful Mediterranean beaches, Alicante will be a paradise for you. The sun, with its shiny dance on the deep blue sea, opens the door to the world of light and sand of the Costa Blanca.
- Take a leisurely walk through the port and down the Explanada de España, where tall palm trees look down on a multitude of outdoor cafés.
- This leads you to the port, which is also part of the “tapas and copas” area When night falls, this eastern pier turns into one of the city´s liveliest areas!
Our partner school in Alicante is located in the heart of the city – behind the infamous Mercado Central – the school is never more than a stone’s throw from every amazing attraction of this beautiful city.
Accredited by the Cervantes Institute, the school consists of twenty-three spacious, vibrant and modern classrooms, each fitted with projectors, air conditioning and heating. Other services include wireless Internet access, a lively cafeteria where we regularly organize language exchanges with Spaniards, a library, a computer room, relaxing sofas, tablets, disabled access, and dedication from everyone involved.
