Altea is an extremely beautiful gem situated north of Alicante. Altea is characterised by its whitewashed house fronts, narrow cobbled streets and stunning beaches. It attracts many artists and photographers, and is a must visit when in the Alicante area.

You cannot visit Altea without taking a stroll through the picturesque maze of winding cobbled streets in the Casco Antiguo the Old Town. Admire some of the architecture dating back to the Moorish occupation and of course the unmissable blue and white domed church in Plaza Iglesia overlooking the sea.

You’ll discover a wonderful mix of bustling cafes, artisan shops, local crafts, jewellers, potters and art galleries.
