Explore ancient churches and monasteries, interesting museums, and stroll the streets of old towns

The history surround the Costa Blanca is ancient and fascinating. In 711, the area was under Moorish rule, which lasted nearly four hundred years. During this time, the orange, peach, and almond groves for which the region is now famous were planted, and the gorgeous hillside terraces along the coast were developed. Around 1248 the Moors were forced out by James I of Aragon and over a century of piracy along the Mediterranean coast ensued. It wasn't until 1812 that the region of Alicante was officially established. After the Spanish civil war from 1936 to 1939, a period of peace ensued and it was then that tourism began to grow. The region had become a huge tourist attraction by the 1970s, and today Costa Blanca lures millions of visitors per year.

There are a multitude of options for visitors who wish to dive deeper into Costa Blanca's history. Those on the top of the list include:

-The Castle of Santa Bárbara: This beautiful castle is strategically situated atop the Monte Benacantil hill. In 1248, Prince (and later King) Alfonso reclaimed the fortress from Moorish rule on the feast day of Saint Barbara, explaining where the name of the castle derived. In 1963 the castle was renovated and opened to the public. The spectacular views of Alicante Bay lure tourists by the thousands year after year. Not only the views are intriguing; the attached museum houses artefacts from the Bronze Age, Roman ruins, and various remains from the fortress as it originally stood in the late ninth century. For those who would rather not walk their way up the hill, there are two lifts that spare a hike of one hundred and sixty six metres! A round trip fare costs approximately 2.50 Euros, and the castle is open year round. A great excursion for all kinds of travellers!

-The Archaeological Museum of Alicante or Marq: Explore Alicante's history. With exhibits and artefacts delving into over 100,000 years of history, this interactive museum is well worth a visit. A new and modern museum, the Marq was constructed out of an old hospital and was designated the European Museum of the Year in 2004. There are several galleries within the complex that have permanent exhibits dedicated to the prehistoric age, the Roman influence, Iberian culture, the Middle Ages, and modern Alicante. There are always rotating and temporary exhibits, making the Marq a destination for locals as well as tourists. The museum is open year round, and is also kid-friendly.

-Javea Old Town and San Bartolome Church: Spend a few hours strolling through the gorgeous old town in Javea. The city centre has stunning examples of Gothic architecture, including the church of San Bartolome. This 14th century church was designed by the Spanish architect Domingo Urteaga and was built just as much for worship as for protection. Be sure to venture to the bell tower for a breathtaking view. Explore the food market with loads of fresh fish as well as local fruits and vegetables. The original city walls were torn town around 1870, but parts have been replicated, adding to the charm and ancient feel of the city centre.

No matter which part of Costa Blanca you choose to stay in, a trip back in time is never far away.

There was everything you could possibly need at the apartment and it is kept to a high standard. Supermarket and restaurants are just a five minute walk down the hill and there are plenty to choose from on both sides of the road. A further ten minutes down the road once over the bridge you come to the seafront with a large restaurant and a little further along the sunshine beach bar which is excellent value for money and a lovely place to sit watching the world go by. We never had a bad meal while we were there some were more expensive than others but on the whole good value for money. We did not have a car for the first 7 weeks we got the bus from Alicante airport to Torrevieja and then a taxi to Punta Prima it was so easy something we had never done before. We walked everywhere: Saturday market, Zenia Boularvard, Playa Flamenco beach (coffee & cream scone €1.80 in Jimmys) Torrevieja along the coast (great café half way overlooking the sea ) or you can get the bus which runs every 40 mins from outside the shopping centre, make sure you are always 10 mins early because if the bus comes early it does not wait. We had a car for the last 2 weeks and so went out and about to other places. San Miguil has a Wednesday market and there are some superb Spanish restaurants. We found the best thing to do take the map get in the car and explore once you were somewhere you liked then find a Spanish restaurant. We ate in the apartment more than we ate out and all the facilities are there all I would have liked was one more shelf in the oven. We found the agents extremely helpful need a light bulb call them or pop in to them and it was sorted immediately. All in all a great time had and we thank Mr & Mrs Gray for letting us share their home with us because that is what it was a home from home
