Alicante is a luminous and dynamic harbor city located at the foot of Benacantil Mountain. The Romans named the city Lucentum, the City of Light. Tourists flock to Alicante for its year-round warm climate, numerous golf courses, vibrant nightlife, and tranquil beaches along the Mediterranean Sea. It is also a city with much history and centuries-old traditions like the San Juan Festivities. The Greeks, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Romans all left their mark before the invading Moors brought oranges, palms trees, and rice. If you're looking for a genuine Mediterranean cultural experience, a place where you can taste the best rice dishes in Spain and lie in the sun, take a dip in the sea and contemplate the Santa Barbara Castle on the mountaintop after a fun day of class, then Alicante is the destination for you.
