Details

Alcoy in Alicante Spain is the place to visit if you want to leave the tourists behind and encounter a traditional Spanish city. There are a fewer foreigners living here than the regional and national average and it has a large population of some 60,000.

Alcoy has a lot to see and is known locally as “ the city of bridges”. There are five different rivers that all converge here, with a large number of impressive bridges and aqueducts crossing the city, adding to it’s charm.

Alcoy can be really crowded in the summer with lots of cars clogging up the streets, which might be a good time to try and seek out the more stress free attractions, of which there are many. The Plaza de Espana with the townhall and church is well worth a stroll through and the tourist office can be found just round the corner. Armed with a map and a few pointers, you can head down to the old quarter with it’s many shops, bars and restaurants, where you can find some respite from the busy city. There is also a green oasis or two on Calle Sant Nicolau where you can catch a peaceful 5 minutes in it’s lovely gardens and park.

Alcoy offers a great Mediterranean climate, although a little cooler that the coast. It can be found by leaving the N340 / AP7 at junction 67 and heading north through Xixcona. If you can manage a visit, try and tie it into the end of April. Around the 23rd they have one of the best known fiestas in the region, celebrating the Christian defeat of the Moors. The place turns into a four day medieval fiesta where an enormous effort is made by everyone in Alcoy to celebrate this historic event, attracting visitor from the whole of the Costa Blanca.
