A very pretty typical Spanish town but not for the infirm as the streets are very steep with lots of steps to access the Old Town.

If you are down at the beach walk you must make the effort and go up the stairs to square at the church. It’s amazing beautiful and view is stunning. You find lots off shops and restaurant up there.

What a stunning place. The old town is full of atmosphere with beautiful views to the surrounding area. There are lots of bars, restaurants and a great shopping area with a variety of individual boutiques. Definitely worth the climb to the top.

As we ambled down from our hotel in the hills,we noticed this magnificent domed roof in all its splendour,a beautiful blue and white structure which certainly sets The Old Town alight. Worth a trip just to see this wonderful building.

Must visit if you are staying in or around Altea. Nice walk up the hill (some steps involved). Beautiful views of the sea and Altea Town (and glimpses of Benidorm). Lots of restaurants, shops and ice cream places. There was a lot of hustle and...More
