The city and the beaches are only a part of Alicante. The province hides amazing places that you will like to discover. Visit my travelogue!

Visit my travelogues Hogueras de San Juan 2007, Hogueras de San Juan 2009 I & II to see some of them. I have also written some local customs tips about the Hogueras.
