Meet Alicante: a city with life

In the bay that lies between El Cabo de las Huertas and The Cape of Santa Pola, at the foot of Monte Benacantil, the present-day Alicante developed as a town that looked out over the sea and the fertile orchards which surrounded it. Alicante, being the provincial capital, is the main provider of services for the whole province. Although the commercial area is gradually moving westwards, the oldest established shops are to be found in the following streets: calle Mayor, Castaños, Gerona and San Francisco. The Maisonnave, Federico de Soto, Doctor Gadea Avenues, and the street of the Reyes Católicos make up the "rive droit" of the Capital.

There is much more to Alicante than rice dishes, of which there is a wide variety, and seafood. Alicante follows a Mediterranean diet, with plenty of vegetables, fruit, exquisiteness, good cooking, tradition, research and professionalism, as demonstrated by the eight Michelin stars that have been awarded to six restaurants in the province. In the city of Alicante, Monastrell restaurant has got one Michelin star.
