Things to do Free Tour The Hidden Alicante

We start this Free Tour The Hidden Alicante at 1st of La Explanada de España revealing the most important legends and curiosities of the promenade and the port. Did you know that the first submarine was tested in the port of Alicante?

Passing briefly by the City Hall and the Basilica of Santa María we will discover you the exorcism of the bell and a visual trompe l'oeil unique in the world. And we will begin to go up, since we are going to explore two neighborhoods built on the Castle mountain.

Neighborhoods of fishermen and humble people that were devastated by cholera and smallpox, hence the Barrio de San Roque (San Roque neightborhood) and its Saint, which has always been associated with epidemics.

We will enter the Barrio de Santa Cruz, a mystical neighborhood, with beautiful white houses, blue flowerpots and colorful flowers that adorn the balconies and transport us to a small Mediterranean town. A very unknown neighborhood, being off the tourist track, where the wild, the traditional and the bohemian of Alicante is mixed in a few streets.

But not all that glitters is gold: legends, murders, epidemics, miracles, mummifications have taken place in the streets of Alicante.

In short, during this Night Free Tour we walk through the most picturesque neighborhoods of Alicante at sunset, combining the beauty of some of the oldest neighborhoods in the city with the darkest and most unknown history of Alicante. Come and discover it with our Free Tour The Hidden Alicante!
