|About these ratings|
Old Town Alicante's boundaries are roughly drawn by the streets Rambla de Méndez Núnez and Explanada de España, and Mount Benacantil, which is topped by the Castillo de Santa Bárbara. Ideal for meandering, Old Town's narrow streets will also give you a true feel for this city. On your wander, you'll probably happen on the city's town hall, cathedral, a convent and a handful of museums, including the Gravina Museum of Fine Arts and the Museu de Arte del Siglo XX Asegurada. Frommer's recommends checking out the Barrio de Santa Cruz, which is "a colorful section with wrought-iron window grilles, flowers, and a view of the entire harbor."
