Interesting and vast arab fortification standing on Mount Benacantil! Just 5 min walking distance from my place! Psss... I'll tell you what the legend says: if you go down to the Postiguet’s beach, take a look at the castle. Can you see that strange face engraved in the rock? It's called the Face of the Moor.

Main theatre in town. To consult the programm just go to their website (http://www.teatroprincipaldealicante.com/) . Opened in 1847, the main façade is neoclassical and next to it there's a fancy (and expensive, let's say it) terrace where you can have a stylish cocktail. It's a great venue to see.
