Alicante: the most underrated spot in Spain?
Castle of Santa Barbara, Alicante, Spain. Traveled here during our 2016 Mediterranean cruise on Holland America.
It’s worth lingering in this sun-baked city on Spain’s south-east coast to make the most of fresh squid, saffron-spiked rice dishes and local fine wines.
When you have an extended stay in one place, taking day trips to nearby cities can maintain the feeling of discovery and adventure.
