Alicante, Spain, Europe Cruise

    Alicante, the urban port, comprises the port complex itself and Mount Benacantil, and is steeped in a rich history of commercial traditions and epic deeds. Over the centuries, Alicante has become a meeting point; a door to the Mediterranean. It is a friendly place with an incomparable climate which welcomes many Europeans who come seeking rest and relaxation in a most privileged location. The port has an accessibility that within a few years, will reach degrees of excellence. This will be the result of opening the port to new destinations, the unquestionable growth of the modern international airport and the introduction of a modern rail connection. New projects in Alicante also offer a wide perspective, including the city of light. Along with other forward-looking and ambitious plans, this will help Alicante consolidate as a dual city of both leisure and business, well situated on the Costa Blanca. To support this growth, the Port of Alicante serves as an outstanding transit port in the Mediterranean itinerary within one night's sail from Barcelona, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca. An important plan to encourage cruise traffic to Alicante is already in place - the new cruise liner terminal building with a view to host the forecasted base port utilisation. The Port of Alicante is entering the third millennium fully focused and prepared to face the new challenges of the Mediterranean cruise market.
    Today in the Alicante visitors can see a third century BC fortress built by ruler Amilcar Barca, a Carthaginian. During the Gothic era of the fifteenth through sixteenth centuries centuries, art and architecture flourished in Alicante and the remainder of the Levant Region. Immense palaces and grandiose churches were built with elaborate baroque details.
