Additional Location Information
Santa Cruz is one of the smallest but most traditional and charming of the barrios that make up the historic centre of Alicante. It is situated at the foot of the Benacantil mountain, which is topped by the Santa Bárbara castle. Despite being in the centre of Alicante, most of its streets are pedestrian and steeply stepped and are flanked by whitewashed houses decorated with brightly coloured potted plants, giving the barrio the air of a village. Santa Cruz is especially well known for its Easter procession on the Wednesday of Holy week, when the barrio becomes an important part of Alicante cultural life.
Close to Postiguet beach (10 minutes walking), the Santa Bárbara castle or the Central Market (5 minutes walking); the apartment is also near the shopping areas and the tram station. Alicante airport is only 30 minutes by the regular airport bus and I will meet you off the bus to show you to the apartment.
Alicante has a little over 300,000 inhabitants and enjoys the amenities of a city without the inconveniences of a large metropolis. As a tourist destination it offers beaches, both in the city itself and the surrounding area, cultural activities (live music, galleries, museums, historical buildings, theatre, cinema, etc.), shops, restaurants and a good night life. It is also within easy reach of other interesting places such as the mountainous interior of the region.
The climate is generally warm and sunny although there can be cold days during the short winter.
The city is the starting point of a train/tram line known as “el trenet”, which runs north up the coast to places such as Playa San Juan, Campello, Villajoyosa, Benidorm or Altea.
