Situated in the Spanish Costa Blanca, in between Valencia and Alicante,
lies Altea, the village of artists and fishermen. This town in
Alicante, a province in the south-eastern region of Spain borders the
Mediterranean Sea and lies approximately 50 kilometres northeast of the
city of Alicante and 130 kilometres south of Valencia. Altea offers a
variety of residential areas where you can find luxurious holiday rental
villas, houses, homes and holiday rental apartments.
Altea, with almost 20.000 inhabitants, stretches a surface of 34.4
square kilometres and is built on a hill of the Costa Blanca. The
fabulous basilica with its resplendent blue domes, graciously crowns the
top of the mountain. Built onto the hillside, the old town centre with
its many narrow streets and alleys, has become home to many an artist
and contains many cosy, characteristic restaurants and bistros.
having increased significantly on the Costa Blanca from the 1950s
onward because of Alteas Mediterranean climate, child-friendly beaches,
and characteristic downtown area, is a main means of livelihood for the
town and its people.
Alteas history goes back many centuries and is characterised by the
manifold civilisations that have passed Altea on their way along the
course of time. Iberians, Fenicians, Muslims, Greeks, and Romans have
all left their marks. It appears that the name Altea is also of Greek
origin, as it is thought to have come from the Greek word Altahia,
meaning `I heal.
Since the town is located at the mouth of the Algar
river (meaning 'the river of health'), historians assume that in the old
days Altea was a hamlet with strategic, medical, and beneficial value.
Situated along a bay, Altea is sealed in by the mountains and the sea.
It offers a panoramic view of the picturesque blue domes of the Virgen
del Consuelo church, also known as the Nuestra Seora del Consuelo
church. This church was built on the hill and stretches high above the
historical downtown area.
Here you will also find a labyrinth of paved
streets and flights of stairs well worth a visit. You are treated to
special views looking down the scenic streets and coastline, and
absorbing the interesting and beautiful spots of Altea.
Cliffs and pebbled beaches vary each other along Alteas 6 kilometres
long beach. Little bays and beaches follow in succession from the
Barranco del Mascarat up to the pier marking the border with L'Alfs del
Pi. Near the old town centre lies the Playa de la Roda beach, while the
biggest beach, Cap Blanch, can be found a little further to the south,
merging seamlessly with the Albir beach. Further north lies the Playa de
Cap Negret beach, a pebble beach with at its end a small inlet with
black rocks named Cala del Soio.
Another beach favourite is L´Olla,
situated right across from its namesake island. Altea's borders are
marked by the mountain peak Mascarat and the Sierra de Bernia, where one
will find inlets with small pebble beaches such as La Barreta, La
Solsida, and La Galera.
Besides the previously mentioned church of Virgen del Consuelo with its magnificent blue domes, Altea offers a range of museums:
In addition there are band competitions and festivals amongst which is
the Vila d´Altea International Music Band Competition taking place in
November or December and bringing together over 500 musicians.

sounds takes place in the night of the second Saturday of August.
Every visitor to Altea is invited to a journey of exploration on foot.
